The impeachment of Donald Trump, 45th president of the United States, died on Sunday in Washington with the release of the four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.

That's the assessment of non-resident senior fellow Bruce Wolpe in The Sydney Morning Herald this week, and certainly seems to be a sentiment shared by senior Democrats in Washington.

Democrats are likely to bore in hard on the incomplete judgment on obstruction of justice. Democratic leaders have also demanded the full Mueller report and all the supporting evidence and documentation. But if they want to take Trump out, Wolpe writes, they will have to do it at the ballot box.
