“Why is it, then, that the Democrats have been so hell-bent on impeaching Trump, even before his inauguration? Why did they jump at the opportunity of exploiting the Ukraine call based on partial, second-hand evidence (at best)? On December 4, 2019, an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times announced: “Letters to the Editor: Democrats wanted Trump impeached from the start because he deserved it.” In contrast, on December 18, 2019, Fox News published an op-ed by Matt Wolking titled, “Impeachment is based on Democrats’ hatred of Trump and anger at his election.” Is it that simple? Has the Democrats’ intense hatred of the president impaired their judgment?” https://stream.org/can-only-hatred-explain-why-democrats-would-pursue-a-doomed-impeachment/ In my opinion hate is a powerful motivator. The progressive left has given in the the power of that emotion and wants to try to take out our great American President since the night he upset Hillary and won the 2016 election. Every Trump success in trade or the economy, every judicial confirmation, every mile of border wall, every mention of energy independence simply fuels their rage.
