If there is a blue wave next year, expect impeachment proceedings, or endless investigations into the Trump White House, from Democrats. They’re already laying the groundwork for that course of action with their latest pick to fill the top minority spot on the House Judiciary Committee. With Rep.

He’s a constitutional law expert, so a fitting background for Democrats who want someone to be the point of the lance in their fight against President Trump (via WaPo):
To fill their top spot on the House Judiciary Committee, Democrats had a choice between experts in two critical policy arenas — a constitutional-law ace with firsthand experience battling Donald Trump, and an architect of sweeping immigration legislation.
By a wide margin, they chose the constitutional-law expert. Why? To ready themselves for a battle with President Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings.
