In the wake of the former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, which wrapped up earlier this year, Democrats have wrestled with whether President Donald Trump should be impeached.

Today, there are 71 current members of Congress who were there for the Bill Clinton impeachment proceedings. One of them, Republican Rep. Don Young of Alaska, was even serving in Congress during the Nixon impeachment proceedings. (Nixon resigned in August 1974 before he would have faced near-certain impeachment.)

In October 1998, Clinton was impeached in a party-line vote by the House on charges of lying under oath and obstruction of justice. After a five-week trial in early 1999, the Senate voted to acquit Clinton on both charges in another party-line vote.

Here's what the 71 long-time sitting members of Congress think about impeaching Trump.
