Leading up to the conclusion of the Mueller report, Democrats were waiting for the report to confirm that the Trump administration and Russia had colluded in order to get Trump to win the presidency in 2016.

However, when the report came to a close, it instead unveiled that the collusion narrative was not the case.

In turn, Democrats have now turned on Mueller.

And, in a recent interview with Fox news, California Rep. Adam Schiff, the Democratic chair of the House Intelligence Committee, explained what the Democrats have in mind now moving forward after the Mueller report was released to the public.

Though Schiff maintains that impeaching President Trump would not be the right move for the country, Democrats like Elizabeth Warren, currently a 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate, are calling for the House to begin the impeachment process.

In response, Schiff explained that the decision is a tough one to make but that Democrats will be caucusing for the next few weeks to figure out what the best decision is not for the party but for the country as a whole.

In the Mueller report, it’s stated that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Schiff instead argues that there might not be evidence of collusion “in plain sight,” but that it doesn’t indicate that there was no conspiracy to collude.

As the tug and pull continues within the Democratic party over whether or not the impeachment process should begin against President Trump, the conversation will only grow more tense.

Tulsi Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate, in a recent interview with Fox news, countered Senator Warren’s call for impeachment. Gabbard instead argued that the American voters are in charge of removing Trump from office instead of Congress.
