#1 ..."Aye,", said one Mr. W. Shakespeare of Stratford-on-Avon, Warwicks., "There's the rub."

The House has painted itself into a corner, and there really is no longer any way out. If they hold the hearings and investigation necessary to fulfill not only the Founders' intent, but the Constitution as well, they will almost certainly put off the public whose support they desperately need to actually impeach. That is why they were so fixated on the Muller Report - they needed HIM to do the dirty work of gathering the evidence and implications needed to be able to say, "We had no choice; HE was the one who found the evidence." That way, their public support would have been there and they would have been able to avoid taking the risks themselves.
Pelosi, Hoyer, Nadler, et al, are corrupt monsters who are still angry that an outsider had the nerve to win in 2016 and deny them Hilary's reign - but they are not stupid. They know what an impeachment will do to them, and still more they know that short of finding some non-existent smoking gun, the President will be found 'not guilty' in the Senate...thereby almost certainly guaranteeing his re-election.
The trouble is that they have lost control of their loud-mouthed freshmen, and said loud-mouths have fired up the base. So right now, the House leadership's choice is a simple one: impeach and lose in 2020, or land on the newbies and lose the base.

Put another way, shoot themselves in the foot, or the head.

#2 I doubt if Maxine Waters, Robert DeNiro, Joy Behar or any of the other loudmouthed impeachment advocates could read that article and then explain what it said.
