1. Timing is everything.

Nancy Pelosi knows what she is doing.

2. Yes she does. Accumulate more evidence, inform the public, move public opinion, and then impeach.

Another advantage to waiting a while is that the pressure is driving Trump completely crazy.

5. Drop the I-bomb when it will do the most damage.

Pre-election time.

She knows her stuff, don't you think she doesn't...that woman is no one to be enemies with.

6. My thoughts exactly.

Hard for Younger, Progressive Democrats to understand the long, slow game, though.
Patience tadpoles.

3. good case made in the article

my argument is that we're not in the Watergate era anymore where we'd get weeks upon weeks of testimony televised live on TV - because of the witnesses refusing to testify, the lawsuits are going to take months to resolve and then even if they do have to testify, they will just take the 5th. And, they could even say that they're not showing up because they're taking the 5th for every potential question.

9. You make a good point

Maybe if we throw a few of these people in jail for contempt/obstruction, it might loosen their tongues.

7. It began Friday. Yesterday it had already been ongoing for a couple days.

But on Friday the Judiciary Committee informed the court that it was conducting an investigation preliminary to an impeachment proceeding.
