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.

"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."

Beyer previously endorsed an impeachment inquiry in May, but on June 24 went further and said that he would support articles of impeachment in light of the intelligence community whistleblower allegations against Trump. “I really don’t see any alternative to actual Articles of Impeachment right now,” Beyer told ARLNow on Sept. 24. “If we don’t act now, I think we lose all credibility as elected representatives and we violate our oath of office.”

 

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. These uncertainties, along with the evident misconduct of the President, warrant an impeachment inquiry so that the American people can finally hear the whole truth that they are entitled to,” Blunt Rochester said in a statement on July 25.

"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."

"Trump has violated his oath of office. He operates for himself, in his personal interest – and not in the interest of the American people," she added. "The impeachment inquiry should be put on the fast track and all of the facts made plain.”
