The Fix

A majority of House Democrats want to open an impeachment inquiry into Trump

Calls for the impeachment of President Trump are growing louder. After the release of the Mueller report, 137 House Democrats say they support at least opening an impeachment inquiry into whether the president committed “high crimes and misdemeanors.” That includes 17 of the 24 Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee, which is where impeachment proceedings would start.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has so far resisted, worried that her party could face political jeopardy if Democratic House members attempt to impeach Trump as the 2020 elections near. She may not be able to hold that line forever.

All impeachment efforts begin in the House of Representatives, which the Democrats control. There’s not really a magic number that pro-impeachers have to get to, but the more who back an impeachment investigation, the more likely it is to happen.

Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.), a former Republican who recently left the party, has also supported an impeachment inquiry. Did we miss someone? Let us know.

Ed Case D-HID+17

"This like any Congress has a constitutional duty to oversee the executive branch and review concerns over the actions of this like any President. To do so, Congress must have all of the facts, and here we don’t because the Mueller report provided is heavily censored and key witnesses have refused to testify. I fully support efforts to require production of the full report and of key witness testimony and other information. I believe that we should not consider formal impeachment proceedings until this process plays out and we obtain all the facts. If those facts show impeachable offenses, or if the administration continues to obstruct Congress’ constitutional oversight function or refuses to comply with court orders, I am prepared to fulfill my duty under the Constitution," Case said in a statement to The Washington Post on Aug. 1.

A. Donald McEachin D-VAD+10

"No one is above the law, and that is reflected in the tireless work of the committees fighting to hold the president and his administration accountable. As this process proceeds, courts have ruled in favor of oversight and transparency over and over again.

Joseph Morelle D-NYD+8

"Special Counsel Mueller’s report raises deeply troubling questions about the actions of the President, his Administration, and the Trump campaign. Congress is continuing its investigations of these actions and I believe it would be unwise, at the present time, to initiate impeachment proceedings while these inquiries remain ongoing. At the same time, Congress must redouble efforts that deliver results on the issues that matter most to American families. My focus will remain on guaranteeing universal health care, ensuring protections for those with pre-existing conditions, and creating economic opportunity for working families everywhere," he said in a statement to The Washington Post on June 14.

"The Special Counsel's report and testimony make clear that the Russian government embarked on a long-term operation to undermine our elections, divide the country, and help President Trump's campaign.

Now that calculus may change if the president continues to stonewall, if the president continues to demonstrate his unfitness for office. There may be little additional cost to going through that process," he said on ABC's "This Week" on June 2.

"I’m glad that Special Counsel Mueller came in to testify, I’ve been urging that he testify because I believe it is an important step in this investigation. One thing that was made clear is that there’s ample reason for the Committees to continue their investigation and I support their work. The other thing that was made clear is that we have some very serious work to do to protect our elections – our democracy – from foreign interference," she said in a statement to The Washington Post on July 29.

Frederica S. Wilson D-FLD+34

"To be honest, I am torn: still not quite there in terms of moving forward to impeach, but I will be eventually because there is so much at stake. Our national security is at stake and there is a lot of domestic discord across the nation because of seeds of hate being sown by the White House that have created a climate of fear and retribution. Impeachment is a serious political remedy and I do not take lightly my responsibility as a congresswoman to be a check on this president and his administration. We must build an extremely strong and convincing case and win the public’s support. That can be achieved by continuing the House investigations and exposing the whole truth to the American people," she said in a statement to The Washington Post on July 19.
