WHIP LIST: Dems who support an impeachment inquiry against President Trump

A growing number of House Democrats are calling for an impeachment inquiry as the Trump administration resists cooperating with their investigations.

The impeachment talk swelled this week after former White House counsel Don McGahn said he would follow the White House recommendation to defy a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee to appear for a hearing on Tuesday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has long resisted impeachment and argued that Democrats should instead focus on the policy issues they campaigned on. But the pressure is growing on Pelosi and her leadership team.

Several Democrats have signed on to a resolution from Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) that calls on the Judiciary Committee to inquire whether the House should impeach Trump.
