According to court documents Democrats are planning on impeaching President Trump a second time, and looking to use ‘Russian collusion’ allegations, even though Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation found zero evidence of collusion.
The House Judiciary Committee has told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that it will continue to push for former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify in a move that could lead to the introduction of “additional articles of impeachment.”

“If McGahn’s testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the Articles approved by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly—including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment,” a brief that was submitted reads.
The prospect of additional articles — while perhaps unlikely — was floated as part of a court battle over Democrats’ bid to compel testimony from former White House Counsel Don McGahn. The committee’s counsel filed a brief Monday, making the case for why the panel still wants to hear from McGahn despite having already voted for impeachment.
CNN ”justice reporter’ Shimon Prokupecz suggested that Democrats may want McGahn’s testimony so they can revive the Mueller report and the Russia collusion angle.
