Is the GOP pushing for impeachment?
Are Republicans stonewalling efforts to provide information on obstruction and other Trump issues actually a push for impeachment?
Does the GOP think that impeachment gives it a political advantage in the 2020 elections by dividing Democrats?
As reported by The Hill:
"...recent stonewalling actions by the administration have only fueled the liberal push to oust the president, complicating leadership efforts to keep a lid on the campaign.
GOP leaders know impeachment divides Democrats, and see a clear political advantage in promoting the debate. The Republicans' campaign arm is steadily blasting emails linking moderate Democrats in swing districts to the impeachment effort. And a growing number of GOP lawmakers are all but daring Democratic leaders to launch the process while it remains unpopular with voters - a strategy not overlooked by top Democrats vowing to resist the bait.
'They would love to drive this to an impeachment, because they think it will be their political salvation,' Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a Judiciary Committee member, said of Republicans.
'If we get there, we will get there on our own time and our own way. We're not going to be baited into it,' Raskin said."
