The New York Times is reaching out to all members of the U.S. House of Representatives about their position on impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

More than 70 Democrats thus far support such an inquiry, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Tim Ryan (Ohio), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Eric Swalwell and Maxine Waters (Calif.).

According to the Times, as of Thursday Democrats Ed Case and Tulsi Gabbard have yet to respond to the newspaper. Same goes for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and 92 other Democrats.

Sixty-nine Dems answered “no, not now, or undecided.”

Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan “is the lone House Republican” to say that Trump has “engaged in impeachable conduct.”

“The Times is asking every representative for his or her position and will update this page with each response,” the article explains. “Many House Democrats who do not currently support impeachment proceedings say investigations of Mr. Trump should continue. The White House has stonewalled these inquiries.”

Civil Beat reported last month that Case and U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz believe that it is too soon to consider impeachment. But both support congressional investigation into Trump and his administration.

Something to consider...

Civil Beat is a small, independent newsroom that provides free content with no paywall. That means readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism.

The truth is that less than 2% of our monthly readers are financial supporters. To remain a viable business model for local news, we need a higher percentage of readers-turned-donors.
