Though there are 228 Democrats in favor of having launched the inquiry, not all have come out in favor of impeachment.

Here's a tally of which Democratic lawmakers endorse launching an impeachment inquiry of Trump.

This list will be updated.

"Impeachment is not off the table. However, before we move forward the American people deserve all the facts. That is why I support an impeachment inquiry.

Colin Allred (Texas)

Allred on Sept. 24 called on the acting director of national intelligence to turn over the whistleblower complaint against Trump to the House Intelligence Committee upon appearing for a scheduled hearing. “If he does not, and this Administration continues to violate the law and obstruct Congress’s constitutional duty, I will be forced to conclude that the only remaining option is for the House to begin impeachment proceedings," Allred said.

Axne, who flipped a GOP-held district last fall, endorsed an impeachment inquiry on Sept. 24. “For the sake of our national security and our democracy, these serious allegations require independent Congressional investigation unobstructed by this Administration.

"He has embarrassed our nation in the eyes of the world with his regular display of ignorance of treaties and historic alliances along with his horrific treatment of families and violation of international laws at our borders.

Bera said Sept. 24 that supports an impeachment inquiry and that he believes Trump has committed impeachable offenses. “After reading the Mueller Report and witnessing the President’s actions, it has been clear to me that President Trump has committed impeachable offenses and went to great lengths to commit obstruction of justice on several occasions," Bera said. "Multiple committees with jurisdiction have been conducting important and necessary oversight, including investigating and holding hearings into obstruction, corruption, and abuse of power by President Trump. I have supported the committees' actions and will continue to do so, including an impeachment inquiry."

Sanford Bishop (Ga.)

"The allegations that the President withheld Congressionally appropriated taxpayer dollars for national security as leverage against a foreign power to pursue unfounded allegations against a political opponent at home are extremely alarming. Taken with the Mueller report and the facts discovered by the other ongoing Committee investigations, we have reached a point where Congress must move forward with an impeachment inquiry," Bishop said Sept. 24.

“During Director Mueller’s seven hours of testimony yesterday, he made it very clear that President Trump was not exonerated in his investigation and that the President wasn’t always truthful in the written answers he submitted.

"Further, President Trump’s repeated statements that he invites future illegal, foreign interference in our elections, his repeated current attempts to obstruct Congress’ oversight authority, and his clear intent to continue to obstruct justice and the will of Congress, create an urgency of action. I am, therefore, calling for the immediate opening of an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump."

Serrano announced his support for an inquiry in a July 29 statement, writing, "I make this statement with a heavy heart. As one of the few current Members of the House who served during the last impeachment proceedings in 1998, I am particularly aware of the wrenching nature of this constitutional process."

"It puts deep strain on our institution and on our democracy. To take steps towards impeachment is to understand that the threat to our nation is so great, and the ability to find recourse elsewhere is so slim, that we have no other choice. In my opinion, we have now reached that point."
