RMN Poll: Should Congress Impeach Donald Trump?
After nearly two years of investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, special counsel Robert Mueller had delivered a 448-page report on March 20.
It is largely believed that Donald Trump had conspired with enemy nation Russia to win the 2016 presidential race deceptively and later he committed “obstruction of justice” crime to scuttle the Mueller investigation.
The findings in the Mueller report have covered charges of conspiracy and the obstruction of justice. Although the report did not exonerate Trump, he has been making unsubstantiated claims that he did not collude with Russia and did not obstruct justice.
However, in his report, Mueller has suggested that Congress should take the final decision on Trump’s collusion with Russia as well as on the issue of obstruction of justice. But despite repeated requests by the House Judiciary Committee, Trump’s Attorney General William P. Barr has refused to share the full, unredacted report with the Congress.

Now, the onus is on the Congress to discharge its constitutional duties and fix accountability if any crime has happened during or after the 2016 presidential election. But Trump has brazenly refused to cooperate with any investigation.
Although Trump’s impeachment seems to be the only way forward, Congress is reluctant to start impeachment proceedings.

What is impeachment?
It is the process by which a legislative body such as the Congress levels charges against a government official including the President. Impeachment is not supposed to remove the official from office. Rather, it is only a process for indictment.
If the official is convicted after indictment, then only he or she can be removed from office. Only those individuals can be impeached who commit crimes such as treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
