Democrats across the country are demanding President Trump be impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanors”—even without any evidence of wrongdoing.
“The demands of the radicalized party base are being amplified by growing calls from a series of Democratic candidates for statewide office who, in an effort to outflank their primary rivals, have started clamoring for Mr. Trump’s impeachment,” reported the New York Times on Thursday.
Despite the selection of a special prosecutor, Democrats do not want to wait for any evidence of guilt to be gathered. Instead, they want the President out of office. Period.
Even admitting there’s no evidence of wrongdoing, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been calling for Trump’s impeachment
One of those individuals is multi-billionaire J.B. Pritzker, a prominent venture capitalist from Illinois who is also running for governor.
Pritzker was a huge backer of failed-presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and helped raise millions for her unsuccessful campaign against Trump.
“We simply do not have the luxury of time to wait for months or years to determine whether the current president of the United States has committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” Mr. Pritzker stated, adding: “The House must begin the impeachment process before Donald Trump puts us at risk again.”

On July 2, Democrats and their allies are planning nationwide “impeachment” marches.
Presumably, even though the job of the special prosecutor in Washington will not be completed by July, Democrats do not want to wait for any evidence.
