Let me take a crack at each one of those.
“About time” or “They should have started this ages ago”
They did. They’ve had power since January. Mueller completed his Report in April. Mueller testified in July. In August, we’ve begun the impeachment process. This is breakneck speed for Congress.
“Pelosi won’t do anything”
It’s starting to seem like this was a well calculated plan by Pelosi, after all. Over a majority of her caucus has called for impeachment proceedings. She has publicly resisted, and the narrative why is because of politics. If she pulls the trigger, and gives her full support to impeachment now, as opposed to a few months ago, she now has the narrative that the evidence is so overwhelming against him, she has to impeach even if it isn’t the best thing politically to do.
(I’m not sure I agree it’s not the best thing politically to do. This is not 1998, and we aren’t impeaching over a blowjob. Also, we’ve impeached twice in this nation’s history. Both times the other party won the next election.)
“Doesn’t matter because the senate/mitch won’t convict”
Irrelevant. He’s impeached in the House. He will become the third American President to be impeached. That hurts.
Would an “acquittal” in the Senate help Trump in the election? Why would it? Should we really give the swing voters of America such little credit, that they wouldn’t realize any trial would just be a show rigged by McConnell and a jury of GOP Senators? We’ll put on our evidence in the House. The American people will see it.
Additionally, the prevailing legal theory is, an acquittal in the Senate, would in no way affect a prosecutors’ ability to prosecute him after he leaves the Oval Office.
