Rep. Jan Schakowsky says in a Twitter video Trump “certainly has committed all kinds of offenses that meet the standard” for a formal charge by the House.

Rep. Sean Casten tells the Chicago Sun-Times he wants Congress to use “every tool” to investigate Trump, even if that means paying a political price in the 2020 elections.

Both Illinois lawmakers say beginning an impeachment inquiry would give the House more legal strength to compel information from a president who’s pledged not to cooperate.

They join more than 60 other lawmakers in the 435-member House who’ve called for impeachment. Most Democrats aren’t behind the idea.
