What Pelosi is doing is a masterful job at exercising a coup. Using a whistleblower report that no one has yet seen, and relying on a newspaper report that itself relied on third hand information to begin impeachment proceedings has me wondering of she hasn’t planned this all along.
As Trumps approval numbers remain high at 53%, there is no Democrat challenger that is likely to win the Presidential election next year. With that in mind, the Democrat party cannot survive another 4 years of Trump placing judges in the Federal court system. Especially since Ginsberg is unlikely to survive until 2025. A 6-3 majority of Republican SCOTUS justices just can’t be allowed to happen, if you are part of the Democrat leadership.
If the Democrats can put enough pressure on RINOs and on Republicans in Senate seats that are from tossup states like Maine, this impeachment may just be successful in the Senate. From there, I see one of two courses of action to follow:
1 Impeach Trump, and immediately impeach Pence, which would place Pelosi in the Whitehouse. This, I think, is the least likely.
2 Impeach Trump some time in January or February and watch as Pence takes over the Presidency for the last few months of the term. Since he doesn’t have the name recognition, his chances of beating any of the Democratic contenders is fairly low.
Once the Democrats are in charge of both houses of Congress as well as the Whitehouse, they are free to enact full amnesty and register some 30 million former illegals as new Democrat voters within 30 days of inauguration. A gun ban will follow, as will every Socialist policy they can cram through in the first 100 days.
It’s almost like it was planned and orchestrated for years.

I can't find it.
Is there anything keeping an impeached former president from running again?
As unpopular as the idea of impeachment is with the average voter, he'd win if he could run.

It's hard to see how the Senate would convict even if the House votes to impeach. The "charges" seem ludicrously weak.
My expectation is that this is purely for the primary season, to whip up core Democrat enthusiasm. Come the general election, this will need to go quietly away or it will backfire on the Dems, whipping up outrage among republicans for sure and likely independents as well. It would hurt the dems in the down races by exposing how important it would be to remove dems from the House and Senate.
It's Kabuki. I'll be very interested in watching how Pelosi stage manages this.
