Is your hope for Trump to be impeached?

I'm looking for confirmations on what all happened. It seems knowable. We can take it from there.
clearly an investigation is in order / so much to sift through

The House of Representatives has refused to investigate either one of the two massive ongoing legal and ethical violations involving the Trump administration: President Trump’s opaque ties (financial and otherwise) to Russia, and his ongoing self-enrichment in office and violations of the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause.

Tuesday the Republican-dominated House Judiciary Committee is expected to reject House Democrats’ Resolution for a formal inquiry into the the potential ethical and legal violations committed by the Trump campaign apparatus in its contacts, communications and financial transactions with Russia during the run-up to Trump’s election last November, and throughout the transition since then. It will also reject calls to examine evidence of Trump’s solicitation and receipt of foreign gifts intended to influence American policy, and the potential violations of the Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution.
The evidence pointing to Trump’s betrayal of American strategic interests has (thus far) included illegal contacts between Trump emissaries and Putin officials concerning the lifting of existing U.S. sanctions, evidence that the Trump campaign was aware of and likely complicit in Russian efforts to sway the election to Trump through Russian propaganda, and evidence suggesting that Trump himself may be compromised and subject to Russian blackmail due to either his financial dealings or his unusual sexual proclivities. These issues, unearthed by our intelligence agencies, directly implicate the integrity of our national government. It’s difficult to imagine any matter that could be more compelling for investigation and resolution. This is, in essence, a determination whether an elected President has been corrupted, compromised, or tainted by a hostile foreign power.
It's never a good idea to get ahead of an evolving news story. news should be sourced, reported and cited responsibly. obviously.
the question was asked elsewhere : "How did this narrative gain so much traction? And who gained from it?"
I would guess that since the search for truth is privatized in for profit news outlets that are experiencing failing business models and with 24 hr news cycles that the pressure is on to deliver 24 hr infotainment. you can have your news (or any product) quick, cheep and good, but you can only choose two, as they say. The sensational news header: BREAKING as click bate. the drip drip drip of information surfacing in the ongoing Trump/Kremlin investigations feed a collective connecting of the dots to establish an accurate narrative.
desperation must certainly had set in for team HRC in dealing with the Never Hillary clusterfuck shitstorm of distortion and disinformation coming from right and left as well as the realisation of self inflicted wounds and campaign miscalculations. + aysemetrical wiki leaks, Steele's quasi-substantiated dossier leak, pizzagate, russian $ trail, trumps lies (incl election fraud claims), republican obstructionism, voter supression, Killlary meme, bad health meme, Comey x2, Giuliani/nyc police/nyc fbi...
