U.S. Rep. Ed Case:
would support impeachment if the president obstructs Congressional oversight or refuses to comply with court orders.#8233;“I continue to support Congress’ efforts to fulfill our constitutional obligation of responsible oversight of the executive branch,”

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
does not support impeaching the president.#8233;“I believe that impeachment at this juncture would be terribly divisive for the country at a time when we are already extremely divided,” Gabbard said in a recent media interview. “The hyper partisanship is one of the main things that is driving our country apart.”#8233;

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz
called for impeachment proceedings to begin.#8233;In a statement, Schatz said the president is "breaking statutory and constitutional law every day, and he is abusing his inherent power as president with regularity, enthusiasm, and most troublingly, impunity."#8233;

U.S. Mazie Hirono
has been calling for an impeachment inquiry for months.#8233;“I’ve called for an impeachment inquiry or process,” Hirono said in a recent interview. “That’s different from impeachment in my view. First you have to get the evidence, then you decide whether or not you’re going to go ahead with impeachment proceedings.”

Tulsi Gabbard's new position on impeachment Friday, Sept 27:

Supporting House Impeachment Inquiry

Up to this point, I have been opposed to pursuing impeachment because it will further divide our already badly divided country. However, after looking carefully at the transcript of the conversation with Ukraine’s President, the whistleblower complaint, the Inspector General memo, and President Trump’s comments about the issue, unfortunately, I believe that if we do not proceed with the inquiry, it will set a very dangerous precedent. Future presidents, as well as anyone in positions of power in the government, will conclude that they can abuse their position for personal gain, without fear of accountability or consequences.
