“Anyone that has been supportive of impeachment knows that the problems facing this country are most clearly visible in the corruption and illegality coming from this White House, but they don’t’ stop there,” said Neil Sroka, spokesman for the liberal advocacy group Democracy for America. “So we have to make the case to voters that it’s bigger than just impeachment and accountability.”
