1. It's worth unpacking Nancy Pelosi's case against impeachment: "You're wasting your time, unless the evidence is so conclusive that the Republicans will understand." She's giving the GOP veto power over impeachment.
2. If you say, "we won't impeach unless we have GOP buy-in" you are saying "impeachment decision won't be made on the merit but on whether GOP wants to." Bu we already know where GOP stands: he can shoot someone on 7th Ave. & they will stick to him.
3. The Mueller report is only the latest it of evidence that Trump has committed acts that at the least merit an impeachment process. But Dem leadership has handed over veto on initiating that process to Trump's own party.
4. Mueller has given a roadmap to impeachment & Trump a roadmap for future Republican presidents to commit crimes: keep GOP on your side and there will be no impeachment. That's a terrible precedence.
5. It's worth noting that this is asymmetrical surrender. The GOP won't extend the same courtesy to Dems. They impeached Clinton for far lesser offences.
