McClatchy News: Democrats talk of an 'impeachment clock' for Trump
WASHINGTON - Democratic leaders aren’t calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
But they’re getting closer.
To one Democratic congressman, the president’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey reminded him of the “doomsday clock,” a symbol that warns about the likelihood of nuclear war.
“We should maybe have an impeachment clock,” Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., said on Wednesday. “And if we did, I think yesterday moved us about an hour closer to having that need.”
Pocan said he had thought Democrats in the House of Representatives needed to use the threat of impeachment as a “tool” to make the administration follow the law.
“I would argue this has got to still be on the table as an option, especially if, indeed, there was obstruction of justice by the firing of the FBI director,” said Pocan, first vice chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

WNU Editor: It is not only Democrats who dream of impeaching President Trump .... there are also many establishment Republicans and conservative Republicans who want him gone. But if President Trump's opponents want to impeach him .... my advice to them is that they better have a iron clad case to do so. It has been 6 months since the election .... and they still have nothing but opinions, anonymous sources, and their emotional hatred of President Trump to justify why he should be impeached .... and in my book that is not enough to impeach this President .... not even close.
