Senate Democrats are speaking out against the recent push to move forward with impeachment, saying that it would be a premature move.

According to a report by The Hill, many Senators hope House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can continue to control overeager House Democrats, as they claim that impeachment will do more harm than good.

“I don’t think we should go there now,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee as the ranking Democratic member. “I was here for the Clinton impeachment and after it was over I wished it never had happened. I think we ought to be very, very cautious with that kind of thing.”

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) also criticized those supporting impeachment, questioning why they wanted to move forward with something that would most likely not be finished by the 2020 election.

“There’s no appetite whatsoever,” Manchin said. “Impeachment and all that goes with impeachment wouldn’t be done any quicker than the election would be done so it’s crazy. Makes no sense at all.”

A majority of Democrats in the Senate are not concerned with the issue, and according to Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), impeachment is not discussed in caucus meetings.

“I’ve never heard it,” Tester said. “It’s getting the cart ahead of the horse. You got to get the information, you got to do a study, you got to release a law report, you got to get the underlying documents.”

“I just think it’s a little premature,” he added.

Senate Democrat Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) also hopes to move on and focus on proving to Americans why they should be the majority party.

“I think we need to work on things that convince them that a Democratic Congress is in their best interest,” said Durbin.

As IJR Red reported, there are many House Democrats who are ready to move forward with impeachment despite the lack of solid evidence and requests from Pelosi to wait to see the results of investigations.

This proves many democrats are just as crooked as the republicans. Its not a party that’s corrupt, its individuals. We need to get rid of the corruption in government.

My opinion is that they’ve done so much damage to the American People, it will be difficult for democrats to recover….I won’t vote for any of them!! They can’t be trusted because all they want is power and they change their arguments & threats every other day.. Then there will be real trouble…

It seems that there may be some demoncraps in Congress who are not totally stupid. They recognize that you don’t impeach the President and go back to work the next day with business as usual. There is going to be fallout and it is not going to be good for those in Congress. It does not matter how you vote you are putting your job on the line. Some of the demoncraps referenced in the article say that the impeachment would not be complete before the 2020 elections. Their statement tells me they think that they will be gaining seats… Read more »

Manchin is reasonable and mostly always has been; Feinstein showed extreme bias – and thus disqualifying her for real leadership in the future – with her handling of the blasely Ford Kavanaugh dream; Tester tries to have substance but will never. Dickie Durbin is a pubescent hack and can’t be trusted. Pelosi is tuned in but doesn’t have the depth and ardency to herd the party’s vapid and rapid cats.

Many red-blooded Americans are hoping the Dimwits will go ahead with their impeachment process since they have nothing to base it on except their hatred of Trump. He CANNOT be impeached because he’s not liked by the cry babies on the Left; you know, those whose radicalized female career criminal was unfit – mentally, physically and socially – to be the part-time cleaning “lady” in the WH attic.

“I was here for the Clinton impeachment and after it was over I wished it never had happened.” Dianne Feinstein

Feinstein is confused.

She and other corrupt Democrats make a classic mistake of comparing King Donald The Loser with Bill Clinton. They should compare him to Nixon because the two cases are MUCH more similar. In fact, the King’s impeachment is way more important than even Nixon’s.

FYI Nixon was not impeached. He resigned from Office.

He resigned because of the threat of impeachment. His goose was cooked and he knew it.

King Donald The Loser is too stupid and confused to realize the similar position that he is in. He seems to be thinking that he can delay, distract and lie his way out of this. A king looks good in oranges.
