Congressman Calls For Trump's Impeachment; Says 'Democracy At Risk'

Comey then purportedly wrote down the conversation in a memo.

"I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice", Green said, suggesting that Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey obstructed an investigation into his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

When asked by a reporter if the memo's content, if true, would warrant impeachment, U.S. Rep. In light of all of this, House Democrats are pushing harder than ever for Congress to appoint a special prosecutor to handle the case outside of Capitol Hill. US Representative Adam Kinzinger joined a small but growing number of Republican lawmakers who have said they would back some sort of independent investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election.

The outburst came amid intensifying pressure on the president in the wake of his firing of James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week, in the midst of a probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian attempts to tilt the United States election in his favour. The House Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing Thursday on how an overhaul would affect economic growth and job creation.

His handling of the controversy could serve as canary in the coalmine for vulnerable Republicans more generally as they try to navigate the troubled political waters around Trump. "But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House". "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

The US District Judge ruled out the argument saying that Uber can not implement arbitration contracts it did not sign. Levandowski is also accused of having stolen a treasure trove of Google documentation before leaving the company.

"I'm sure we're going to go on to hear from Mr. Comey about why, if this happened as he allegedly describes, why didn't he take action at the time?".

Trump's gesture was particularly important for Moscow given the spike in tensions following the US missile strike in April on a Syrian air force base that Washington said was a staging point for a chemical attack. "So there are a lot of unanswered questions". "I think we are in the position now where it's time for an independent commission or a special prosecutor or whatever".

Yet a tax cut, if not a major overhaul, could still be in the cards even under the scenario Trump leaves office early.

Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which is among those probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 United States election, called Putin's offer "quite amusing".
