Talk of impeachment isn’t going away. It’s actually intensifying in some quarters, and the Speaker of the House thinks Donald Trump is just trying to provoke Democrats to act. From CNN.
“Trump is goading us to impeach him,” she said at an event in New York City hosted by the Cornell University Institute of Politics and Global Affairs. “That’s what he’s doing. Every single day, he’s just like taunting, taunting, taunting because he knows that it would be very divisive in the country, but he doesn’t really care. He just wants to solidify his base.”

Meanwhile in the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants all talk of the Mueller report to end. On the Senate floor, McConnell said it was “case closed.”
Today, @senatemajldr chose to protect a manifestly corrupt president above upholding the law and defending the republic from foreign interference. The American people deserve to hear the truth from Robert Mueller, and in 2020, we must elect senators who will serve in good faith. https://t.co/6LoZXND66F
