1. Democrats have called Trump/GOP’s bluff that they wouldn’t go on record with a vote. (Check, it’s ✔️.)
2. All Dems but 2 voted for the inquiry; no Republicans did. For GOP in deep Trump districts, they’ll be aiight. But this wasn’t a vote to impeach, it was to just officially open the investigation. How is a GOP Rep in a moderate district going to explain that they wouldn’t even vote for an investigation into very serious allegations?
3. The American people get to see & hear the testimonies, which will be more enlightening than the spin coming from either side.
