Opposition group: House majority supports inquiry

The number of members of the House of Representatives who support the initiative for an impeachment inquiry against United States President Donald Trump reached 218, according to Scott Dworkin. The cofounder of the Democratic Coalition wrote on Twitter on Wednesday that it would be "enough" to adopt charges against him.

The number is a majority in the lower chamber of Congress, but taking the matter to Senate, where two thirds of votes are needed to take Trump out of office, still requires a complex procedure. The Democratic Coalition was established three and a half years ago to prevent the current president from winning the election. After he did, it said it would work to hold his government accountable and that it is "directly countering Donald Trump" and his allies.
