Congressional Democrats wrestling with whether to impeach Mr. Trump are pretending they need some legal smoking gun. It's all a canard. All they need are votes — first in the House, then in the Senate — and the support of Americans around the country.
Elijah Cummings could turn out to be Trump’s worst nightmare based on the Baltimore resident’s powerful position in Congress, his widely-praised recent media performances and shifts in the zeitgeist that have thrust Cummings into the symbolic role of be new best hope to rein in Trump.
