40. Bringing up the content of the process is irrelevent when "pace" is being argued

I.e., there are steps that Congress has to go through to reach what most of us desire and it ain't gonna be speeded up and done half-assed.

And AGAIN, there have only been THREE impeachments in the entire history of the U.S. since the Constitution was ratified. Two of them happened during the 20th century, and one of those two never made it to the Senate.

THAT is history AND civics, regardless of who it was done against.

And the "get on with it" demand is exactly what is happening right now with the subpoenas and scheduling to bring Mueller in to testify and getting other testimony scheduled to get enough info in order to begin to draft articles.

Remember that several Democrats, notably Al Green, have introduced Articles of Impeachments and they were shot down because the resolutions were done before any reports were received or other LEGAL info had been obtained to support the articles.

I recall almost 11 years ago, sitting there for 4 hours watching Dennis Kucinich read 25 articles of impeachment into the record against Shrub and those went nowhere too - because the resolution really hadn't gone through the proper channels - the Judiciary Committee.

And as a note - those teevee "analysts" are paid to talk. And talk they will and say all kinds of things, so don't always take everything they say as "gospel".
