Here’s some top-shelf political analysis from MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, and he seems more than certain about it. He seems to think that the reason Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been dragging her feet on the impeachment of President Trump is she doesn’t want the public galvanized on it.
The reason that the House Democrats' efforts have failed to galvanize the public is because the Speaker of the House very clearly does not WANT the public galvanized on impeachment. End of story.

Maybe Chris Hayes is right, and maybe Pelosi is right, too? We certainly don’t like her politics, but she’s pretty shrewd, as she demonstrated when she soundly dismissed “the squad” by reminding The New York Times that they might have their Twitter worlds but they’re also only four votes out of 435.
Or, and hear me out, this idea is only popular in liberal hipster enclaves that the Dems already have locked up and they need to win at least a few non-hyper liberal areas…. https://t.co/hCFadiyxU8

You mean that not every Democrat is a card-carrying member of The Resistance? You’d think the Dems would have figured that out by Joe Biden, who’s allegedly the “moderate” presidential candidate, topping all of the polls, even before he joined the race.
In other words, not everyone follows Chris Hayes on Twitter.
@SpeakerPelosi, I believe Hayes is talking about you. I for one, can’t find the lie.

Pelosi is failing our country.

Someone tag Pelosi out of the ring

Yep! I just can’t support Pelosi anymore. I’m so frustrated. Republicans are trampling democracy daily & Dems do nothing. They should be holding Lewandowski in contempt and all the aides that refuse. Fine them. Jail them. Stop being the party of ineptitude.

Trump is counting on the Dems not having the stomach to stand up to him in any meaningful way. So far, he is right.
I hope they still prove me wrong, but I am losing hope.

I have no idea what she wants and what she is waiting for. Perhaps it is time to start putting pressure on the Speaker of the House.

Then we push for a new Speaker.

One of the greatest derelictions of duty

She was supposed to be Trump's worst enemy, not his best friend!

Nancy Pelosi is destroying the Democratic Party. Her cowardice is uninspiring, and that may re-elect Trump. I will not vote for any democrat as long as she remains Speaker.
— Gondi (@madriverrider) September 18, 2019
Then we should impeach Pelosi first so the real Democrats can fulfill their duties.
— Paul McMann (@MannAtlanta) September 18, 2019
Impeach Pelosi! That’s an idea that really should get trending.
We want Impeachment!!!!

Speaker has clearly failed her party, her country, and her constitution
— Zachary (@bruinzack) September 18, 2019
At this point it's fair to question whether she believes her job depends on NOT impeaching Trump?

Wondering why @SpeakerPelosi is colluding with Trump to keep him in office?
— Fred Wilder (@paplanner13) September 18, 2019
Nancy Pelosi doesn't control public sentiment. They've started proceedings and been met with a shrug by the media. You want to blame someone, talk to your colleagues who seem more interested in theatrics than anything else.
— Sean Kelley (@borderlinesmart) September 18, 2019
Yeah, why isn’t the media doing more cheerleading for Rep. Jerry Nadler and the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry?
Perhaps she knows this is a losing battle, eh?
— SammyG (@Quips4Kicks) September 18, 2019
Or an in-kind contribution to the Trump 2020 campaign?
Nancy Pelosi just got 'testy' with reporters who kept asking her about Rep. Nadler's impeachment inquiry https://t.co/sdkeHzHJRl
