U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici said she would likely vote to impeach President Donald Trump based on the evidence that has emerged so far about his appeals to Ukraine to investigate a political rival.

“In the past, I’ve expressed concerns about policy differences with this administration,” Bonamici said at a town hall Monday night at Gearhart Elementary School. “But when we learned the president was compromising our national security and raising national security issues, that’s when I said my constituents and Americans deserve to get the facts.”

Asked afterward by The Astorian whether she would vote to impeach the president, the Oregon Democrat said: “I likely would because what I’ve seen is admission about what the phone call was and the summary of the phone call to me raises serious enough concerns, but we need to wait until the inquiry is finished.”
