The country needs to know if there was collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation whether or not a crime was committed. Secondly, Democrats wouldn't be able to impeach Trump in the near future anyway - at least not by themselves.
Two presidents have been impeached, and neither was convicted. From there, two-thirds of the Senate has to agree with the impeachment.

"Now more than ever, we must stand up and demand that Members of Congress uphold their constitutional responsibility and start an impeachment investigation of this president".

Thus, if Congress attempts to impeach Trump, it's going to take a joint effort by both Republicans and Democrats - something that's incredibly rare these days.
