“If anyone thinks a partisan impeachment process would constrain President Trump, they are fooling themselves. Without significant bipartisan support, impeachment proceedings will be a lengthy and divisive action with no resolution," Peterson said in a statement.

"I believe it will be a failed process that will end up even further dividing our country and weakening our ability to act together on issues like passing [the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement], containing foreign threats and growing our economy," he added.
