Staunch House Democrat Flips on Impeachment
House Democrat Brenda Lawrence, from Michigan's 14th district, which is solidly Democrat has changed her mind on impeachment. She does not think it is a good idea to move forward with it at this time, especially with the election being so close.

According to Town Hall:

A Democratic lawmaker from a deep-blue district in Michigan said Sunday she has changed her mind about impeaching President Trump. 

Rep. Brenda Lawrence, who has represented Michigan’s 14th District since 2015, said Sunday that she no longer sees the “value” in moving forward with the process this close to an election. 

“You can censure, you don’t have to remove the president,” Lawrence said on the “No BS News Hour with Charlie LeDuff” podcast. “We are so close to an election. I will tell you, sitting here, knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of kicking him out of office, but I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable.”

  She had previously been an impeachment supporter, telling CNN:

“Our democracy is bigger than Donald Trump, and we need to act,” she said at the time. 

It has also been pointed out by the Washington Examiner that Lawrence was a supporter up until last month.
