Illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says he thinks the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump should go forward. He said he joined his colleagues several weeks ago to say it was necessary.  

“I didn’t jump at this as a possibility," Durbin said.  "I waited until the evidence started to mount, and I believe, based on the documents released by the president, declassified by the president, and the whistleblower’s complaint, I believe the impeachment inquiry should go under way."

Congressional Republicans have questioned the need for an investigation. Senator Durbin made the comment after touring a federal prison in northern Illinois with other members of Congress.
