Speaker Nancy Pelosi has held back the wing nuts, knowing that the GOP-controlled Senate will not convict and that a failed move to oust the president could be political suicide in 2020.
Her problem is that while most polls show the majority of Americans say no to impeachment, as many as 67 percent of national Dems say yes.
Her strategy of letting the impeachment caucus investigate in hopes of pushing up general public support hasn’t substantially moved the needle. That leaves the Dems desperate for Mueller to give them something new, even a stray sentence or two, that they can spin into a web of impeachment.
Keep that desperation in mind as Nadler, Schiff and others fulminate and make outlandish charges in hopes of gaining support for the decisions they’ve already made.
