Impeachment fearmongers use the talking point falsehood that impeachment is not "governing."
Anyone who passed fifth grade civics knows better than that:
"Impeachment is a constitutional remedy addressed to serious offenses against the system of government. It is the first step in a remedial process - that of removal from public office and possible disqualification from holding further office. The purpose of impeachment is not personal punishment; rather, its function is primarily to maintain constitutional government."(Deschler Ch 14 App. pp 726–728, emphasis added). Those who say that the House of Representatives should not conduct an impeachment inquiry are adverse to maintaining a constitutional government:
"The president is considering ... [portraying] House Democrats as liberal insiders who are focused on impeachment instead of governing."(Washington Post, emphasis added). According to our fake president, maintaining the form of government envisioned in the United States Constitution and laws is not an act of governing the United States.
He and his sycophantic enablers are just plain anti-American and filled to the brim with dishonesty wrapped in ignorance.
II. Inquiry Writ Large
The activity that precedes an impeachment is an inquiry:
"inquiry: the act of asking for information: An inquiry is also an official attempt to discover the facts about something."(Dictionary, emphasis added). Those who are adverse to the facts are adverse to an inquiry into constitutional governing.
III. Closing Comments
Let the facts fall where they may and establish the inquiry (we do not want leaderskip we want leadership).

“Experience has shown that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson
"Thus, the degree to which a Whistleblower in the U.S. government is mistreated is directly related to the degree of corruption that been established within that government." - Dredd
"The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."
