11. Because they're smart?

You don't go yelling impeachment (especially if you are a powerless minority who could not initiate it anyway) until the investigations are further along, and incontrovertible evidence of malfeasance is in hand. The Independent Counsel has only just begun his tenure; the House and Senate Intel committees have not nearly completed their work. And the biggest missing piece--an independent congressional commission--has not yet even been called.

A smart prosecutor does not go to trial in haste with half a case, before she knows she can win, before the ducks are all in a row, and all the evidence air-tight.

There is much more to gain by patience and hard work than by simply yelling something. Or are you simply wanting the "lock her up" tactic of the crazy right?

Nothing could jeopardize our position more for a change of power in Congress in 2018 than a premature call for impeachment. Chill. These things take time and a whole heap of work by hundreds and hundreds of professional investigators and legal minds.
