If you’re a conservative, you believe the Democrat Party has declared war on the Trump Administration, and want to impeach him. You may also believe Republicans have enough evidence, in turn, to demand investigations into alleged crimes by the Obama administration: Fast and Furious, Clinton Foundation Pay to Play scheme, Hillary’s illegal server, the IRS scandal against conservative groups, etc. The Republicans have the majority in the House and Senate.
