New Democrat backs impeachment as support grows among voters in conservative districts
Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA)

Supporters of opening an impeachment inquiry received a major boost of support on Monday when a Democratic Party rising star in a conservative district offered her support.


Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) defeated a Republican during the 2018 midterms in a seat that had never elected a Democrat during its 25 years of existence.

Porter, a tenured law professor, has received praise for her insightful questioning of administration officials.

The congresswoman explained her reasoning in a video and 9-page policy document posted to her website.
