House Democrats back off impeaching Trump


It took one critical phone call for House Democrats to agree not launch impeachment proceeding against President Trump, but only for now.

Democratic leaders jumped on the Monday call in an attempt to qualm the growing and unsettling fissure within their caucus, as members within the new Progressive wing of the party have calling for the immediate impeachment of the president.

According to two senior sources privy to the private 87-minute conference call between 170 Democrat members, leadership drove the point home that impeachment was off the table, for now.
