Aah, the "both sides are corrupt" defense. Demonstrably incorrect.

The investigation IS moving forward. The inquiry is gathering evidence to form articles of impeachment, which will be voted on. Or have you not been paying attention?

It should be noted that during the impeachment hearings on Nixon, the House investigated and held private hearings for almost 6 months before the full House voted to open an impeachment inquiry. So it's not like the House is breaking new ground in how they are proceeding.

In theory, they could decide after the unofficial inquiry that they might not issue articles of impeachment. I doubt it since a great amount of impeachment worthy behaviour has been corroborated so far.
