I am going to highlight a few grafs from the @revolvingdoorDC newsletter from April 1st. The context has only slightly changed. House Dems must take control of their destiny and open an impeachment inquiry.

Unlike what quivering members of the Establishment think, an "impeachment inquiry" needn't lead to *any vote,* so the fact that the votes for impeachment are not yet secured is a pretty dumb counter-argument. (2/4)
An ongoing inquiry would allow Democrats to control the narrative and remind people of scandals and abuses of power long forgotten. An inquiry would allow Nadler and his Committee mates to weave seemingly disparate scandals into a cohesive narrative. (3/4)
Democrats' reflexively pursue what I have long termed #LearnedHelplessness ,a mindset whereby fearing potential downsides of action is always deemed wise and passivity is always the outcome. The Trump era demands better from the opposition if the rule of law is to win out. (4/5)
The biggest reason impeachment is unpopular now is opposition by Dem leaders.

Generally, public opinion isn't fixed. Views can be changed by politicians bold in spirit, right on the issues, & willing to endure Trump's tweets & the Washington Post Ed Board's tut-tutting. (5/5)
