There are now more than 90 members of the House of Representatives who have publicly backed an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. All but one are Democrats.

Out of those dozens of Democrats, almost all share two important qualities: Their seats are safe in 2020, and they are not members of the House Democratic leadership team.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has the most influential voice in the decision on whether to move forward, has repeatedly stated that she plans to focus on current congressional committee investigations into Trump before talking about an impeachment inquiry.

Despite leadership's opposition, there are now five House Democrats from competitive districts who also back impeachment.

In June, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan became the only Republican to back launching an inquiry. On July 4, he declared his independence from the Republican Party but did not declare an affiliation with another party.

Of the lawmakers on record, some have stated outright that they support impeachment, while others specify that they support an impeachment inquiry. Both of those positions are noted as "for impeachment" in the graphics.

Among the House Democrats who are most influential in this process — key committee chairs investigating the president and his aides, top leaders and, of course, the speaker herself — only one has signaled she favors impeaching the president. Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has been calling for impeachment since the early days of Trump's presidency; she wrote in a February 2017 tweet that her "greatest desire was to lead [Trump] right into impeachment."
