Should Trump be impeached? Where California House members stand on an inquiry

California's congressional delegation plays a key role in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The state sends more representatives to the House than any other and has leaders on both sides of the debate.

Support for the impeachment inquiry, a preliminary investigation that precedes any vote, is split along party lines.

46 Democrats support an inquiry
7 Republicans do not support an inquiry

When the Democrats got on board

Twenty-six California Democrats supported an impeachment inquiry long before news broke that Trump asked Ukraine's new president for a "favor" in investigating a potential Democratic opponent in the 2020 election.

26 Democrats supported before the whistleblower complaint

After news of the whistleblower complaint about Trump's interactions with Ukraine, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others publicly supported an inquiry.

Pelosi's fellow California Democrats soon came on board, uniting the entire delegation in favor of an inquiry.

Leading the charge, and the opposition

In her role as speaker, Pelosi, who represents a San Francisco district, is leading the Democratic charge. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield is key to the Republican effort to protect the president.

Twenty four members of the California delegation serve on at least one of the six committees leading investigations that fall under Pelosi's impeachment inquiry.
