Seven freshman Democrats who flipped Republican seats wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post calling for impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
They include representatives who were some of the loudest Democratic voices against impeachment: Reps. Gil Cisneros of California, Jason Crow of Colorado, Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania, Elaine Luria of Virginia, Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan and Abigail Spanberger of Virginia.
Of those seven, only Crow had previously called for impeachment proceedings to begin.
Jonathan Chait: “The most important impediment to impeaching Trump has always been the reluctance of the most vulnerable House Democrats to take a vote that they feared would alienate their constituents. But all the signs are now pointing toward those Democrats throwing aside their reluctance.”Save to Favorites
