A majority of the House of Representatives now supports the impeachment of US President Donald Trump – for high crimes against his country.

On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House will begin such an inquiry.

At least 90 Democrats announced their support since details emerged from Mr. Trump’s attempt this summer to pressure the president of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden. If the House votes on articles of impeachment, a simple majority, or 218 votes, would be needed to impeach.

Starting in May, The Times asked every representative for his or her position and has been updating this page with each response. Inclusion in the “support” category does not mean that the member supports impeachment, only that he or she has indicated support for a formal investigation into the president’s actions, which could lead to votes on articles of impeachment.
