I’m told that Michigan GOP Rep Fred Upton will vote to impeach the president.— Dana Bash (@DanaBashCNN) January 13, 2021
Original article, Tuesday afternoon:
Rep. Peter Meijer is the lone Republican congressman from Michigan to say he may vote in favor of impeaching Donald Trump.
The newly sworn-in Meijer on Monday told Grand Rapids TV station Fox 17: "When it comes to impeachment, it’s something we’re strongly considering at this point.
"There are timelines and other considerations and additional information that I want to have before making that decision affirmatively, but, again, I think what we saw on Wednesday left the president unfit for office.”
Meijer later told CNN his "break" came last Wednesday, as pro-Trump rioters were in the midst of storming the Capitol and "the one person who could tamp down the rhetoric, the one person who could have put an end to that violence, the president, he put out that video that said 'we love you, you're special. Come home.'"
I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that the President of the United States was completely MIA while the next three individuals in the line of succession (VP, Speaker of House, Senate Pres Pro Tempore) were under assault in the Capitol.

Trump is expected to be impeached by House Democrats on Wednesday. In addition to Meijer, Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger have hinted they may vote for impeachment as well.
