      Democratic Representatives will have to do their job, if this President is going to be held accountable.

      i honestly cannot imagine the democratic house managing to effectively parlay this into any sort of accountability. so far they've been at best hasty and at worst actively adversarial to the idea of things like impeachment, and i'm skeptical that any of the investigations are going to hold trump any more accountable than the mueller report can--which is to say, the buck stops with the house again and the house hasn't shown great signs of being able to handle this all in an effective manner.

          I doubt this will have any affect. Impeachment just isn't popular with the American public, it's polling in the ~40% range. With the next presidential election coming up, there's no way Pelosi would rock the boat and hope somehow that the when they actually do impeach him, public opinion sways.

          Impeaching him also wouldn't do anything. Obviously the senate will not move forward with charges, and as we've seen historically just impeachment doesn't necessarily mean anything.
