OK, let's cut through the noise on impeachment.
First, let's state the obvious:
Donald Trump's entire presidency is an impeachable offense, an affront to basic human values, an insult to common sense and common decency, a threat to the rule of law.
Trump has repeatedly undermined the First Amendment (which he's sworn to defend) by inciting violence against the free press and calling them "enemies of the people."
His party has launched an unconstitutional assault on women’s reproductive rights and health.
Trump has presided over the atrocious policy of ripping asylum-seeking families apart and locking migrant children in frigid holding cells, where they are dying.
He has repeatedly fanned the flames of racism, emboldening neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
The unavoidable reality is that impeaching Trump in the House is the ONLY way to leave a permanent mark on his presidency -- to let history know that we defended the rule of law when it faced an existential threat from a lawless and corrupt president.
