5. Most of the anti arguments seemed to me to boil down to one thing

That public opinion was a static, fixed number. "We can't impeach! Only 39% in a recent poll said that Trump should be investigated, let alone impeached." Yeah, the poll numbers weren't good. About the only people paying close attention to the political scene were aware of the misconduct and yes, high crimes and misdemeanors, of the administration.

But a funny thing happened as more information kept coming out, more facts were brought forward, and more of the bricks in the denial wall started to crumble: Public opinion changed. It wasn't some fixed quantity like the number of atoms in a mole after all. We're still in the inquiry stage, remember. Schiff's committee is finding evidence and gathering testimony that used to be the job of the Department of Justice until Trump got his tiny little mitts on it. So the early messy phase of the inquiry is happening right out in front of God and everybody. Wait until the House begins a focused investigation of specific charges.
