Congressman to call for impeachment of Donald Trump this afternoon

Texas congressman calls for impeachment of President Trump

Texas congressman calls for impeachment of President Trump

A growing number of Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment in the days following Comey's dismissal.

Throughout the day, many Democrats urged caution before calling for Trump's potential ouster, instead saying the focus should remain on getting all the information for now.

And then the Democrats said, "No, no, we want him to be impeached".

British bookmaker Betfair also said that punters had bet more than 5,000 pounds ($6,470) on an early departure for Trump in the hours after it was reported Trump had asked Comey to shut down the Russian Federation investigation. It's very serious if you're talking about the president of the United States, who's the boss of the executive branch, talking to the head of the FBI, suggesting that an investigation, an active investigation, should be terminated, that's a pretty serious matter.

"If the President is not above the law, he should be charged, by way of impeachment, by the U.S. House of Representatives", Green added.

The past week has seen extraordinary political turmoil in Washington, as President Donald Trump faces grave accusations that he has obstructed justice.

"I sit on a House Judiciary Committee, where is where any impeachment proceeding would start, And I have to say if the president engaged in obstruction of justice, that is a high crime".

President Trump says he did not ask Comey to end Flynn investigation
Flynn served briefly as Trump's national security adviser before he was sacked for lying about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

The president also denied that account. Green went on to say that he did not discuss the impeachment with other members of Congress. He said Trump has committed acts that "amount to intimidation and obstruction". To do otherwise would cause some Americans to lose respect for, and obedience to, our societal norms. Two were impeached by the House of Representatives but ultimately acquitted in the US Senate: Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998.

Should the Senate fall short of conviction, the president is acquitted and remains in office. His letter to acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe requests all memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings that relate to any communications between Mr Comey and the President.

Most bettors are Ladbrokes are not from the U.S. Moreover, most are amateur hobbyists, said Shaddick.

Impeaching President Donald Trump would be "wrenching" and not something that lawmakers should push for without hard evidence, Rep. Adam Schiff said Wednesday.

"Our mantra should be 'I".

But Green's call will be the first made on the House floor, and it comes at a time when the president is historically unpopular, as his approval rating has sunk below 40 percent, according to most polls as of Tuesday.
