Some moderate House Democrats are undecided on whether to impeach President Donald Trump, according to the Washington Examiner.
And Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., predicted "four or five" Democrats will likely vote against the two articles of impeachment.
The news outlet said Peterson is among the 31 swing-district Democrats who must answer to constituents who voted for Trump. Peterson acknowledges he will likely vote against impeachment.
"I'm leaning no," he said. "I want to look at everything."
The Examiner noted that Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., is in a toss-up re-election race. Slotkin is still not certain whether to support impeachment.
"I have not read them," Slotkin said of the impeachment articles. "I need to read them."
Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., has said he would oppose impeachment. He and Peterson were the only Democrats to vote against the House resolution to formalize the impeachment investigation.
House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., said he realizes some House Democrats might not vote for impeachment.
"We do expect to lose some, and that's why I say it is a conscience vote," Clyburn said.
