According to this article from the Hill, Representative Luis Gutiérrez is supporting a group of Democrats who intend to file new articles of impeachment against President Trump this month. This action comes at the exasperation of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a critique of the premature focus on impeachment; however, Rep. Gutiérrez claims that in light of the recent indictments (talked about here) the time is right. Representative Green, who has read his own article of impeachment to the House floor, agrees that it is not necessary to wait for the results of the Mueller investigation, because “impeachment is political” not criminal.
Whether Reps. Green and Gutiérrez are correct about the timing of impeachment remains to be seen, but it seems very unlikely that talks of impeachment will be quelled anytime soon. Things in the House are hot and getting hotter.
