On Wednesday, the House of Representatives reached the support needed to officially take impeachment action against Donald Trump.
Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS) came out in support of an impeachment inquiry into Trump, giving the House the 218 votes needed to impeach.
After careful deliberation, I'm supporting the House of Representatives taking the first step in an impeachment process, beginning an impeachment inquiry.

As Politico congressional reporter Kyle Cheney noted, Davids’ announcement puts the number of lawmakers who have expressed support for impeachment action of some sort at 218 — a majority of lawmakers, and theoretically enough votes to pass articles of impeachment.
