Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyDemocratic members of Congress grappling with the question of impeachment spoke with new urgency on Sunday following reports that President Trump pressured Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son in a July phone call between the two leaders.
