They demolish nothing. Just as the impeachment of Mr. Johnson came after repeated efforts by back benchers stands. Why? I have not argued every Democrat was for it from the beginning. Neither was ever Radical Republican. Nuance..really, you should try it.

I know this more nuance view of events, peppered by history, is not compliant to party talking points. It is what it is. I wish people took the very long view of history. It would be helpful.
