Impeachment tracker: How many Democrats are calling for an impeachment inquiry into Trump?

Majority of House Democrats favor impeachment

A majority of the 235 Democrats in the House of Representatives now support opening an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's reluctance to do so. California Rep. Salud Carbajal brought the number of supporters up to 118 — just over the halfway mark — when he expressed his support for an inquiry on Aug. 2. 

"I've read the full Mueller Report, the president knew the rules and he broke them — he cannot be above the law," Carbajal said in statement. "That is why I believe it is time to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump."  

In late July, the House Judiciary Committee said in a court filing that it is actively considering articles of impeachment and seeks access to material redacted from the special counsel's report in order to decide whether to move forward with the process.

Although just a handful of Democrats had called for Mr. Trump's impeachment for months or even years, a growing number of lawmakers are beginning to consider opening an impeachment inquiry against the president in light of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

While that investigation found that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia to influence the election, it did not exonerate the president of obstruction of justice. Mueller identified 11 instances of possible obstruction, but he made no determination on this, having concluded that doing so would not be in keeping with a legal opinion held by the Justice Department on the treatment of a sitting president. 

Attorney General William Barr determined the president did not commit obstruction of justice.

See the list below for the 188 Democratic lawmakers who support an impeachment inquiry.
