A Running List Of Where Each House Democrat Stands On Impeachment
There are now 121 members of the House of Representatives calling for an impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s corrupt conduct. 120 are Democrats and 1 is an Independent – Rep. Justin Amash (MI-03). While the House Judiciary Committee has said they have launched an impeachment investigation, they have yet to formally open an impeachment inquiry.
To begin an impeachment inquiry, the House Judiciary Committee must vote on a resolution to open one, and then the full House must vote on it. Once passed, the House Judiciary Committee would then be endowed with grand jury powers which would strengthen their ability to compel witness testimony and documents currently being withheld by the Trump Administration. In order to launch the inquiry, House Democrats will need to reach the 218 vote threshold.
This is why it’s so important to track what members of Congress support launching an impeachment inquiry. After former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s July 24 testimony highlighting President Trump’s potential obstruction of justice, the number of Democrats calling for impeachment increased. There is now a majority of House Democrats who support impeachment. Watch Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) after the August recess.
