Impeachment hearings are about election interference

The impeachment hearings are not about reversing the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. They are about discovering whether a sitting, freely elected president of the United States has committed an impeachable crime by asking another country to interfere with our elections.

The Mueller investigation was not meant to overturn the results of the 2016 election; it was meant to discover whether or not another country tried, or was encouraged, to meddle in our free elections.

The fact that these probes are both about foreign governments interfering with our elections, is just a coincidence.
