Are There 22 Patriotic House Republicans?

I am constantly contrasting in my mind what if the roles were reversed and it was a Democrat in the WH who might be facing indictment or at the least impeachment and it was the Republicans on the attack.

Why are the Dems so polite and understated? At this point, why aren't there Dems virtually frothing at the mouth calling for impeachment? The Repubs would be! It is like the Dems do not really want to fight. Like they do not even know how to fight other than to politely make some request that this situation be looked into!

How come the Dems refuse to get down and dirty and really fight the corrupt Repubs. America needs someone to defend her from these plunderers.
