Democrats remain split on whether to begin House impeachment proceedings against President Trump, including Colorado’s delegation.
Only two congressional Democrats, U.S. Reps. Joe Neguse and Diana DeGette, are fully on board the impeachment train.
DeGette appears to have come to her decision reluctantly, after her opponent, former Colorado House Speaker Crisanta Duran. came out first for impeachment.
The rest of the delegation is dragging their feet on a decision and appear unwilling to disclose why. It’s somewhat unusual, given they are delighted to bash Trump at every other opportunity.
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet appears to be the most reluctant.
He wasn’t talking to the Colorado Sun for their article Wednesday. The most recent comment they found was during a May 11 appearance on Face the Nation, where Bennet essentially advised a wait and see attitude.
That was before last week’s uproar on Capitol Hill, when Democrats, including Neguse, told House Speaker Pelosi to being impeachment, stat!
U.S. Reps. Jason Crow and Ed Perlmutter have had plenty of time to decide whether they are for, or against impeachment.
But for some reason, neither is willing to commit one way or the other, according to the Colorado Sun.
Both didn’t rule out supporting impeachment when asked in recent days, but stopped short of backing the effort.
At least DeGette was blunt in stating she wants Watergate-like proceedings to move forward.
Colorado voters have a right to know where their elected officials stand on the issue. And if they refuse to tell us, voters should remember that in next year’s election.
