In the wake of Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, various Democrats have amped up calls for impeachment. Democrats overwhelmingly maintain that Mueller’s report did not exonerate President Trump. As a matter of fact, Democrats believe that Mueller’s findings affirm that the president obstructed justice.

Supporters of President Trump have pushed back against the calls for his impeachment. Many right-leaning Americans maintain that these calls are politically motivated and lacking merit. This is a stance which Trump also harbors. Yesterday, the president subsequently took to Twitter in order to express his views about Democrats who wish to see him impeached.

A total of 99 Democrat House caucus members backed launching an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. However, to the chagrin of many House Democrats, Speaker Pelosi did not issue support for an impeachment inquiry.

Despite these claims, Mueller’s investigation did not gather enough evidence to charge the president. During Mueller’s testimony last week, he also affirmed that Trump did not interfere with the Russia probe.

Since the end of the Mueller investigation, Democrats have taken their reasons for supporting impeachment in a new direction. Many progressives stated that Trump obstructed justice during the probe; they also expressed interest in launching their own investigations into the president’s personal and financial dealings.

Trump has denied claims of collusion and obstruction of justice many times. During the Russia probe, the president also referred to it as a “witch hunt,” citing political motivations as the true reasons behind the probe.

In light of Mueller’s recent testimony, the president has continued to weigh in on this matter via Twitter:
