A group of House Democrats are reportedly considering censuring President Donald Trump instead of impeaching him.

A group of about 10 Democratic members of Congress, including New Jersey Rep. Josh Gottheimer, Oregon Rep. Kurt Schrader, New York Rep. Anthony Brindisi, and Utah Rep. Ben McAdams, are all reportedly open to a censure resolution of Trump instead of moving forward with impeachment, according to Politico.

“I think it’s certainly appropriate and might be a little more bipartisan, who knows,” Schrader told Politico on Tuesday when asked about a possible censure, adding “Time’s slipping by.”

“Right now, there’s no other options. This is another option,” another Democratic member of Congress told Politico.

Despite Pelosi’s early reluctance to push for impeachment, there are currently 228 Democrats who have voiced support for impeachment or an impeachment inquiry. Pelosi has said she believes Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised approximately $1 million dollars the day after Pelosi explicitly came out in favor of the impeachment of Trump for the first time.

Many of Pelosi’s Democratic colleagues previously pushed for impeaching Trump, including Democratic Texas Rep. Al Green, who broke with Pelosi when he vowed to force a vote to impeach Trump in late March. Green, who previously had several bills to impeach Trump overwhelmingly rejected by the House of Representatives, called for a third impeachment vote. Pelosi said impeachment was “just not worth it” in a March interview.

Pelosi previously said she would not hold a full vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry, which Trump has continued to call for.

    Being ignorant, they will continue on one path or the other. The only thing that may save seats for them is if they totally drop it, and offer an apology to the president and the country. That is something they will ever do. They will continue ripping off their own balls, and just need to decide if they are going to do it fast or slow.
