‘This Is Cowardice’: Many Outraged After ‘Feckless’ Steny Hoyer Declares ‘Impeachment’ Still ‘Not Worthwhile’

 
 
 
Many are outraged after Democratic House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) declared that even after everything revealed in the Mueller report, impeachment of President Donald Trump is off the table.

“Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point," Leader Hoyer told CNN's Dana Bash. "Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgement."

Hoyer is the second most-powerful Democrat in the House of Representatives, behind Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The redacted Mueller report makes clear President Trump engaged in possible obstruction on at least ten separate occasions. More importantly, it also makes clear that Mueller laid out the case for Congress to impeach Trump, because DOJ regulations bar indicting a sitting president.
