: .the most powerful tool the legislative branch has, Impeachment, & they've turned it into a political cudgel, which is not at all what the Founders intended. When you hear Schiff use all these words like quid pro quo, it is because they can't specify that Donald Trump broke
: "Nancy Pelosi cares more about power than she does about principle. She did not want to go down this road. She realizes this is a loser for Democrats. The Founders envisioned the worst people being in politics, yet they couldn't envision this. You have these people taking
