They’ve almost impeached Trump. I mean it was a controlled, colluded narrative and a 100% hyper partisan effort but every dog deserves a bone, right?

I'm not a Democrat, but Dems can be proud of impeaching Trump*

 

* impeached

What's there to be proud of? Support for impeachment actually went down. It was a 100% partisan effort. 

 

The ONLY people who support it are those that have wanted to impeach Trump since his first day in office. 

 

Meanwhile, the what we were told  y your media conspiracy theory into the Bidens is actually being investigated which is what Trump asked for to begin with. 

 

There's literally NO ANGLE on this democrats can claim a win.
