Respectfully, Why do you believe we should not move forward to impeach Trump right now? It is totally clear that he hs used the office for personal/family/business gains in a gangster/monster like way, with threats, firings, illegal deals, etc. He has diminished the respectability of the position of president and obviously is working toward becoming a dictator. He is sexist/racist/white supremacist/good ole white boys club/etc. He has no intention of helping middle/lower class. Please send me your reasoning and evidence that cause you to not believe that impeachment proceedings move forward. I also feel our governor is one of his good ole boys. Looking forward to hearing some sane reasons to think trump is a good/honest/ethical person. Sincerely, Colleen Steinbeiser

I am a Conservative Republican and will be voting for Trump - again. I will be actively working for anyone who is Republican and running against you. Care to tell us more about your Ukraine dealings, Ms. Shaheen?

Impeach him for what? Everything the DEMOCRATS have done that he is uncovering via Barr & Gulliani? Even Shaheen has been connected to the Ukraine but Trump declassified and released his documents. Is Shaheen willing to do the same on her Ukraine dealings?
