I would like to see a Democratic member of the United States House introduce a resolution to impeach

Trump on treason,bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. I want all of the Democratic US House members including the ones who represent Republican leaning Congressional Districts to vote yes on impeachment. The Democratic US House members who vote no should face a primary challenge. We should target Republican US House members in purple/blue districts for defeat in the November General Election.
Regarding the US Senate
All 46 Democratic US Senators plus Bernie-VT and Angus-ME must vote to remove Trump from office.
Red State Democratic US Senators ie Donnelly-IN, McCaskill-MO,Tester-MT,Heitkamp-ND,Brown-OH,and Manchin-WV need to vote for Trump's removal or face a primary challenge.
The 19 Republican US Senators that need to be target for defeat if they vote to keep Trump in office is
Murkowski-AK
McCain-AZ
Flake-AZ
Gardner-CO
Rubio-FL
Isakson-GA
Perdue-GA
Young-IN
Grassley-IA
Ernst-IA
Cassidy-LA
Kennedy-LA
Collins-ME
Blunt-MO
Daines-MT
Heller-NV
Burr-NC
Tillis-NC
Portman-OH
Toomey-PA
Graham-SC
Scott-SC
Cornyn-TX
Cruz-TX
Johnson-WI

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)

A former Moderate Democratic US House member turned current liberal Democratic United States Senator has voted against almost all of Trump's cabinet appointees. If Gillibrand (D-NY) seeks the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination and wins, how would she do in the electoral college vote if she chooses one of the Castro twins as her VP runningmate?

Would Donald Trump support a tax increase?

To pay for the wall in the US/Mexico border.

January 26, 2017
