NBC’s Chuck Todd is a little overly enthusiastic about the prospect of impeaching Trump. This week after the Manafort and Cohen verdicts came out, Todd basically said that Congress should start impeachment proceedings now. It reveals that the media is just looking for any excuse to get rid of Trump. It’s pure wishful thinking.

Chuck Todd: A “Functional Washington” Would Be Looking For Ways To Draw Up Articles of Impeachment Papers On Trump
Chuck Todd said Wednesday morning if a “functional Washington” existed that Congress would be holding investigations into the Trump presidency and looking for ways to draw up articles of impeachment. He also advised outgoing House Speaking Paul Ryan to leave behind a group of Republicans to “start an investigation” in the House Judiciary Committee to probe Trump.
“You now have a president of the United States accused of committing a federal crime,” Todd said on Wednesday’s Today Show. “The way a functional Washington would work is that Congress, there is a process here. The sitting president is accused of a crime. The Judiciary Committee in the House of Representatives would begin to look to see if there’s enough evidence to start investigating and drawing up articles of impeachment, but this is not a functional Congress. This is a Congress controlled by Republicans.”
“They would have to do this on their own president. But I have to tell you, I think there is going to be increased political heat and you’re going to have a divided Republican party. Those who are fearing Trump as a drag and those that know that his base is there till the end,” he added.
