Unless a few key Republicans revolt against President Trump and bring the rest of the caucus with them, this situation won’t change. Thus the president has figured out that congressional enforcement mechanisms are mostly notional, says Paul Rosenzweig, a senior fellow in national security and cybersecurity at the public policy research firm R Street.
If the House begins a formal impeachment process, it would most likely expedite cases in the courts dealing with oversight access, says Mr. Rosenzweig. The question then would be: Would they actually take the vote to impeach President Trump?
If the process does not move along “the failure to act will inevitably result in the wholesale weakening of institutions and processes that undergird American democracy,” he says.
