Let’s start this story off with a reminder of what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference:

Not about politics?
We told you Thursday morning that Democrats seemed to have dropped “quid pro quo” in favor of “bribery” at some point in the last few days. Here’s more on the reason why:
NUGGET: The Dem decision 2 retire “quid pro quo” & embrace “bribery” followed a DCCC study showing the word resonates more in battlegrounds
It’s also clearly stated in the Constitution as grounds 4 removing POTUS. Could we see it in impeachment articles? https://t.co/kXHRcMpAhg

“Not political” indeed!
They’re changing the accusation based on polling. https://t.co/BJRIRCX1jm

Yeah, that’s what Nancy claimed.
Democrats: The impeachment hearings are not about politics.
Also Democrats: We are polling different terms to describe what Trump did in order to best persuade swing state voters. https://t.co/v33PCHmPAk

They actually needed a study to show that actually english words resonate better than Latin.

So they are poll testing how to proceed on impeachment. This isn’t about the rule of law. It’s about politics. https://t.co/wX5hZ027r2

From top to bottom, it’s all about politics.
