Momentum for impeaching President Trump a second time was growing rapidly over the weekend among rank-and-file Democrats and some Republicans, setting the stage for a final showdown that would test the boundaries of politics, accountability and the Constitution.
Representative Ted Lieu, Democrat of California, announced on Saturday that the article of impeachment drafted by him and other House Democrats had drawn more than 190 co-sponsors.
“We will introduce the Article of Impeachment this Monday during the House’s pro forma session,” he wrote on Twitter.
Most Republicans in Congress remained silent on the issue over the weekend, drawing more attention to those who did speak up.
