I feel your outrage as well, but I’m going to go Devil’s Advocate.
If basic political comprehension were enough we wouldn’t have a President Trump. His base is the neo nazis, vanilla racists, the alt-right, the “burn it all down” crowd. I’m not talking about the general. He would not have even made it through the primary. Hell, even Barr made it clear he himself hadn’t even read the Mueller Report based on his replies at the hearing.
This requires bringing people in front of House committees to interview on recorded and publicly viewable television. This is getting the evidence, closing off loop holes, etc. to serve as evidence once impeachment has happened.
Right now look what would probably happen based on Barr’s hearing if they impeached today:
House: The report speaks for itelf! Just read it.
McConnell: Mueller didn’t say to indict so he clearly exonerated Trump.
House: What about X, Y, Z? That doesn’t make sense. We call Mueller to testify.
McConnell: Barr says Mueller agreed with him on a private phone call. I’m not going to call someone who hasn’t voiced a contradictory view. Time to vote not-guilty Senate.
So the hearings need to happen first. Now that takes time.
For the good faith actors, they need time to prepare. To do this right. You don’t want to accidentally make an important witness look like a fool you can’t trust.
For the bad faith actors, well, sadly part of how the court system works for these political matters requires you provide enough rope for the bad faith actor to tie their own noose. That takes times and a few repeated offending actions.
As hair pulling agonizing all of this is, just remember it also prevents Republicans from easily impeaching any Democrat that want. If the system was too greased you know they would have impeached Obama for breathing.
