20. what will happen? That all of them will switch to impeach? Good luck with that.

They are (maybe rightly, maybe not) scared (as is Pelosi, in terms of losing our majority, again maybe rightly, maybe wrongly) of losing their seats if the MAGATs (who are the majority in some of their districts) kick up their shitty hooves and boot them out. The 30 or so Dems in the very problematic, bi-partisan, partially RW-funded Problem Solvers Caucus alone can block it, and counting them, the Blue Dog Caucus, and the New Democrat Coalition there are 108 'out' centrists in our House caucus (some of that 108 belong to more than one of those groups). Even if 80% of that 108 signed on to Impeachment, there still are not enough votes (and some others who may not support it are not even amongst those 108.)
