There have been A LOT of developments in last few hours

Read full story but main point is leaders from Pelosi on down recognize a seismic shift in the caucus on this and are trying to figure out next steps

@BresPolitico @sarahnferris

@BresPolitico @sarahnferris @AndrewDesiderio Pelosi spent the weekend and today working the phones to get a feel for where the caucus is -- including chatting today with Judiciary Chairman Nadler and others committee leaders investigating Trump
@BresPolitico @sarahnferris @AndrewDesiderio Now Dems are weighing several options:

- A resolution condemning Trump's actions related to Ukraine scandal

-Pelosi issuing a "forceful" statement embracing impeachment probe like she hasn't before

-Both of the above plus more
@BresPolitico @sarahnferris @AndrewDesiderio Also there's been four members to come out for impeachment in past few hours

-- Two freshman mods: Phillips and Craig

-- Two Pelosi allies: Larson and DeLauro

Other members are discussing how and when to jump off the fence (don't want to be seen as last to support)
@BresPolitico @sarahnferris @AndrewDesiderio Tomorrow:

-- Pelosi meeting with six committee chairs handling Trump investigations

-- Then there's a special members-only caucus meeting at 4 p.m.

-- Possible op-ed by national security freshman members backing impeachment

@BresPolitico @sarahnferris @AndrewDesiderio Finally, I can't overstate what a shift there's been

Some members have been wanting to back impeachment for a while and wanted cover. For others, this really was the last straw.

The most important thing is that leadership recognizes this and is shifting strategies as a result
And here’s the op-ed from the seven frontliner freshman Dems calling allegations, if true, “an impeachable offense.”

They originally were aiming for Thursday but decided to move up publishing op-ed given how fast things seem to be moving.

The rumors of a select committee on impeachment, run by Pelosi ally Adam Schiff, are floating around again.

But members have been privately discussing the idea for months -- we mention here in a story from June
