50. I do not think that an impeachment would happen AFTER Trump won a second term

Based on how much foot dragging there is now for it. It would come off as being sore losers to the tenth degree. It would come off as desparation. Like ...."Oh NOW they want to impeach?", and "if they thought it was so imperitive then they would have done it during or after the Mueller report", coming off as obvious political grandstatnding. Then in the 2022 midterms Repubicans would use that to scare their base to the polls.

I think you strike when the fire is hot. Anything could happen...a war with Iran, another "convenient" terrorist attack. Preferably using some new news story to launch it. Like just when we found out that Mueller revealed how Barr misrepresented his report. That was a great catylist to start. That was the perfect time. Now it is not as good a time. Nancy and Chuck blew that, they weakened our position by not acting then. Now it is almost a common held belief that Mueller found Trump innocent of everything. But IMO there is still time to salvage it before that new normal becomes the new history book "fact".

Basically if they don't, that will be used by Trump and the GOP to declare that inaction as PROOF that it was all phony fake news, and they had nothin'. And so that the Democrats wasted time and money dragging the country through their incessant baseless attacks meant to 'divide the country'.

And on the other hand it will depress Democratic voters who voted them into the House to DO SOMETHING! Only to find out Nancy is more concerned about passing another infrastructure bill in a good old bi-partisan way. And declare "victory!" that her bill wasn't watered down too too much.
