As I said, it is a matter of PRINCIPLE. Their job is to do this investigation, regardless of how the republicans will operate. I would also argue that if they find it’s obvious he committed these crimes, it could actually help them against republicans if they refuse to vote in favor of impeachment. It will show how morally bankrupt, hypocritical, and partisan they are. That’s the way I see it. It’s principle, not politics.
