The New York Times: Factbox: Majority of House Democrats Support Trump Impeachment

September 13, 2019

A majority of Democratic lawmakers in the 435-member U.S. House of Representatives have now said they support starting impeachment proceedings against Republican President Donald Trump.

The total stands at 135 lawmakers, a majority of House Democrats, whose ranks total 235 members. That is still short of the 218 votes needed either to pass a resolution authorizing a formal impeachment inquiry or to approve articles of impeachment against Trump.

More than two dozen Democrats joined the pro-impeachment ranks after former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's July 24 congressional testimony about his investigation of Trump and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Still more added their support during Congress's August recess, which ended on Monday.

The current pro-impeachment list includes representatives from 33 states. The largest group comes from California, where 29 of 46 Democratic representatives are in support.

The following are the House Democrats who have expressed public support for an impeachment investigation:
