“Ill-advised” is how Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) describes the immediate demands to impeach President Donald Trump.

"I think this [impeachment] is so ill-advised for Joe Biden to be coming in, trying to heal the country, trying to be the president of all the people when we are going to be so divided and fighting again," Manchin told Fox News Monday. 

"We are country with rule of law, that's the bedrock of who we are," Manchin added. "Let that take its place. Let the investigations go on. Let the evidence come forth and then we will go forth from there."

“There’s no rush to do this impeachment now, we can do it later if they think it’s necessary.”
