Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti argued Thursday that Democrats already know they want to impeach President Donald Trump.

Speaking with Chuck Todd on MSNBC's Meet the Press, Continetti explained that delays by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) had nothing to do with slow deliberation. Todd said Democrats seemed to be waiting to hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller before deciding on impeachment, but Continetti disagreed.

"I think a lot of Democrats in Congress have already made up their mind, which is that they want to move to impeachment," Continetti said. "They feel that Volume II [of Mueller's report] is enough to begin the impeachment proceedings."

The second volume of Mueller's report examines potential obstruction of justice by the president concerning the investigation into Russian interference and collaboration. Mueller declined to make a finding on obstruction, citing the Office of Legal Counsel memorandum concerning policy against indicting a sitting president.

Democrats are calling for Mueller to testify in the hopes of gathering new information, but Continetti argued that his testimony would likely make no difference.
