We were so focused on the massive national publicity reaped by U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse after he and others clashed with House Speaker Pelosi to force the impeachment of President Trump, that we almost missed out on another Coloradans trying to ride the political glory.
Of course we mean U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette. Apparently, she’s still bitter about losing that leadership post and is also siding against Pelosi in wanting to impeach Trump.
We found her tweet tucked inside an NBC News article, underneath a quote from Democratic socialist queen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
The facts laid out in the Mueller report, coupled with this administration’s ongoing attempts to stonewall Congress, leave us no other choice: It is time for Congress to officially launch an impeachment inquiry against the President of the United States.

Impeaching the Republican president is not a foregone conclusion among Colorado Democrats, as some liberals would expect.
Still sitting on the fence and safely behind Pelosi’s skirt are U.S. Reps. Ed Perlmutter and Jason Crow.
Congressional Republicans continue to stand by President Trump despite his disregard for the rule of law but @HouseDemocrats will continue to weigh the many options on the table when it comes to taking action against those who refuse to cooperate with congressional orders. https://t.co/Owk9E2I2ON

Crow is still mum, but last we heard a few months ago he was siding with Pelosi and striking an anti-impeachment pose.
Interestingly, Bennet’s presidential campaign pages are mum on the matter, a politically wise choice for him.
Of course he doesn’t actually want Trump impeached, he needs Trump as a fundraising tool.
Plus, if the House impeaches and Senate fails to convict, Democrats will pay the price in the 2020 election.
Although, as a sitting member of the U.S. Senate, Bennet would be forced to take a side.
We’re just waiting for the media to do their job and ask him.
For those hiding under rocks this week, a growing chorus of Democrats are accusing Trump of stonewalling their various and sundry investigations.
Instead of uncovering actually evidence, Democrats like DeGette and Neguse want to just go ahead and impeach Trump, while Pelosi wants to drag the investigations through the 2020 election to smear Republicans.
