Now is joining in calling for the nation to take to the streets in support of impeachment. Know what? I have some thoughts about where the pitfalls & weak links of the "outside strategy" they're summoning are actually to be found

Politics doesn't happen only in Congress. An outside game can wake up more Americans to the gravity of the situation. It can mobilize progressives to work as hard as they did in 2018. It can confront congressional Republicans with their cowardice.
Glad to see on the mass mobilization beat. The 2017 Women's March involved 1.7% of the population. Scholars estimate that the threshold for successful peaceful protests movements is closer to 3.5%.
