NEWS: There's been a sudden spike in House Democrats backing an impeachment inquiry -- infusing the effort with new life even as Mueller's upcoming testimony is expected to bring even more Dems on board. politico.com/story/2019/07/…
POLITICO reached out to all 27 Democrats who sided with Al Green on yesterday's effort to debate articles of impeachment -- but who hadn't yet taken a public stand on an impeacment inquiry -- and here's what we found. politico.com/story/2019/07/…
There are 6 new Dems who say they'd support an inquiry if given a chance to vote: Reps. WELCH and LARSEN issued public statements. Reps. ROYBAL-ALLARD and PAYNE confirmed they'd back an inquiry. Reps. BASS and PALLONE said they would too. politico.com/story/2019/07/…
That's a big spike after a long drought for impeachment inquiry backers. But there was another curious phenomenon: 7 Dems said they only sided with Green because of a technicality. His impeachment articles should've gone to the Judiciary Committee rather than summarily rejected.
Several others said they sided with Green in order to call out Trump for his racist comments but not because they necessarily back impeachment. And another 6 declined to comment or didn't respond. politico.com/story/2019/07/…
HMM: It appears Rep. MATSUI is the seventh Dem, by my count, to back an impeachment inquiry on the day. But that’s if this cryptic statement her office sent me counts as an endorsement. politico.com/story/2019/07/…
This has been clarified -- and yes, in fact, Rep. Matsui favors an impeachment inquiry, making her the seventh Democrat of the day to take this position.
