More Democrats are hopping on the “impeach President Trump” train, despite party leadership’s attempts to tamp down the fringe effort — and the clear lack of evidence to back the fringe’s claims.

Again, these aren’t new allegations by any stretch of the imagination, but — just so we’re clear — here’s why each of those STILL don’t work.
Nevertheless, the impeachment drumbeats persist from the leftist fringe.
