The media doesn’t seem to care that the Mueller report cleared Trump of any collusion charges. They wanted this story to end a certain way and they’re running with it.
They don’t seem to mind that we can see them all singing from the same song book, either.

Terms of Impeachment: Media Mention The I-Word 309 Times in One Day
Although the Mueller report did not recommend any charges against the President, liberal journalists on cable and broadcast networks spent Thursday suggesting to audiences that impeachment was imminent, if not inevitable.
Throughout Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, liberal talking heads on cable and broadcast news networks mentioned impeachment an astonishing 309 times during their coverage the of the newly-released Mueller report.
MRC analysts examined a 24-hour span of coverage on liberal cable (CNN, MSNBC) and broadcast (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks, from 11:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday to the same time the following day, for every instance where the term “impeachment” — or some permutation thereof — was used by hosts, analysts, or contributors. In total, the word came up 309 times, with the vast majority (286) coming from cable networks CNN (148) and MSNBC (138).
This study looked only at the 18 hours of regular daily programming, thus excluding any coverage that took place between midnight and 6:00 a.m. EDT Friday morning. An updated count of the full 24 hours is pending.

Do you know who else is talking about impeachment? Elizabeth Warren. Her presidential campaign is quickly sputtering out, so she’s desperate to be in the news cycle again.
The Hill reports:
Warren calls for House to begin impeachment proceedings
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Friday called for the House to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump, wading into a topic that other 2020 White House hopefuls have so far been wary of discussing.
Warren issued the call one day after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into the 2016 election and the Trump campaign.
The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States.

She’s so pathetic.
All she wants is attention.
