Democrats have enough votes to impeach President Trump as the WSJ reports at least 18 of the key lawmakers out of the 31 districts that Trump won in 2016 have committed to voting “yes” on impeachment.
Many of these lawmakers made their announcement via Twitter.
The President betrayed his oath by undermining our national security and integrity of our elections for his own personal benefit. As a Navy Vet and Member of Congress, I swore to protect our Constitution. That's why I'm moving forward to vote for impeachment of the President. pic.twitter.com/CBxKoMVQm9

This week, the House will take up articles of impeachment against the president. It is with a sense of humility, and with the future of our Constitution and presidency in mind, that I will vote yes on the articles of impeachment before the House. pic.twitter.com/3Bv75HCH0j

I have studied the articles of impeachment, both Republican and Democratic reports, deposition transcripts, and public testimony. With a heavy heart and a solemn devotion to our Constitution, I will vote in favor of both articles. Read my full statement: https://t.co/yDm7KvlDD3 pic.twitter.com/3gdP6O7mnK

I will vote yes. People I respect have reached different conclusions on the best course of action. We agree what the President did was wrong. I continue working on making prescription drugs affordable, air quality, and reducing the debt. My statement⬇️ #utpol pic.twitter.com/S4RsWhVjgf

In the national security world, we are trained to make hard calls, even if they are unpopular –– if we believe the security of the country is at stake.
I will be voting yes on both articles of impeachment. And I want all of my constituents to know why: https://t.co/JvJN0jkAdS

Breitbart reports House Democrats now have the votes to impeach President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported late Monday.
The Wall Street Journal‘s Siobhan Hughes, Lindsay Wise, and Natalie Andrews wrote Monday evening:
By Monday afternoon, at least 18 from the 31 Democratic-held districts that Mr. Trump won in the 2016 presidential race had announced they would support the abuse-of-power and obstruction of Congress charges, according to a Wall Street Journal survey, with two saying they are opposed.
In other words, given the recent surge over the weekend into early this week of announcements of support for Articles of Impeachment from a number of vulnerable House Democrats who had been holding out until now, the Democrats have crossed the threshold necessary to impeach the president–barring any unforeseen surprises.
