When they pulled that with President Clinton, the public turned against them. I don't see it happening.

This is why downticket races are important. Take the Senate, and we can tell the House to go fuck themselves.

... while hoping to find something to hang their hats on.

Impeachment will begin if and when it's proven that Hillary publicly lied about some embarrassing private matter that wasn't their business in the first place.

3 week vacation (recess, as they call it).
Then when they come back, they will vote to repeal Obamacare about 9 times.
Then they will take another recess…
Then after that, it's Christmas break.
Then they will get around to impeaching Hillary.


So, I give it about a year.

Your analysis is very complete!

I'm leaning toward your extended timeline for the simple reason that their game is obstruction and delay. So, there won't be any hurry to actually impeach HRC. It would require some actual activity on their part and we all know they are all about nothing.
