Who are the House Democrats backing Trump impeachment?

About two-thirds of the Democrats publicly in favor of starting an impeachment inquiry are members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

They include the two Progressive Caucus co-chairs, Reps. Mark Pocan (Wis.) and Pramila Jayapal (Wash.), a Judiciary Committee member. Three vice chairs who also sit on the Judiciary Committee have come out in favor of an impeachment inquiry: Reps. David Cicilline (R.I.), Joe Neguse (Colo.) and Veronica Escobar (Texas).

Most Progressive Caucus members represent safely blue districts and constituents more supportive of impeachment.

Progressive freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) — who drew attention on her first day in office in January by pledging to “impeach the motherf—-r” — introduced a resolution in late March calling for an impeachment inquiry. It now has 12 cosponsors.
