Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) asked his colleagues to practice temperance and not rush to impeach the President. During opening statements Wednesday, he said House Democrats need to think about the task at hand more soberly and recognize they are following a flawed process.

The Oklahoma lawmaker went on to say that while the House may come to an agreement, this will not be over for the Senate, the incoming administration or the American people.

Cole then highlighted the other paths which could be taken and said lawmakers should think about the consequences of their decisions.

Cole finished out his opening comments by stating he does not see impeachment as a wise course and urged his colleagues to reconsider.
