Majority of House lawmakers support impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump

Washington, September 27 (RHC)-- At least 217 Democrats and one independent congressmember said they support an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s actions — just over half of the majority of representatives who would be needed to pass articles of impeachment.  

A two-thirds majority of senators would be required to convict Trump and remove him from office — meaning at least 20 Republican senators would need to turn against the president. So far only one Republican senator has spoken out sharply against Trump’s actions: Mitt Romney of Utah, who has called Trump’s behavior “troubling in the extreme.” 

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse complained that Democrats were rushing toward impeachment, but warned his Repubilcan colleagues not to dismiss the whistleblower complaint, saying it contains “lots that’s very troubling.”
