Congressman calls for Trump's impeachment on House floor

Trump had asked the FBI to stop investigations against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

As for Comey, whom Trump fired last week, the FBI director wrote in a memo after a February meeting at the White House that the new president had asked him to shut down the FBI's investigation of Flynn and his Russian contacts, said a person who had read the memo. "I do it because ... there is a belief in this country that no one is above the law, and that includes the president of the United States of America". "Then we still have a lot of investigating to do to determine what the President was asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation director to do, and why".

Amid multiple Trump-related scandals rocking the Capitol, U.S. Rep. We would never have imagined we'd need him to come back so soon before the Congress. And this is where I stand.

"Amid the gross incompetence, recklessness and overwhelming conflicts of interest, we can't wait for the next shoe to drop", Low, D-Silicon Valley, said in a statement.

Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, doesn't know whether to find the offer ironic, amusing or disturbing.

"Removing Mr Trump will require a two-thirds majority in the Senate, and the chances of Republicans voting to impeach their own president seem low", Nomura added.

Democratic-leaning polling firm Public Policy Polling revealed that 48 percent of voters think the president should be impeached. "But everybody merits a fair trail", he was quoted as saying. What are your thoughts on how the White House is handling intelligence?

Trump only earned a 40 percent approval rating in the poll, and a 54 percent disapproval rating, according to the report.

"That is our job, to be sober, to be passionate and to follow the facts wherever they may lead", he said. And the 25th Amendment gives it the power to remove a president who is deemed by the vice president and Cabinet officials to be "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office".

But perhaps shaken by the gravity of recent developments, the leaders of the Senate committees on intelligence and the judiciary, and the House panel on government oversight, demanded that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and White House hand over records related to Comey. "That means before rushing to judgment we get all the pertinent information", Ryan said.

The White House vigorously denied it all.

Trump himself hasn't directly addressed the latest allegations that he pressured Comey to drop the Flynn investigation.

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said simply, "It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House".

"There is an FBI investigation going on right now with all things related to Russian Federation, done by the career professionals at the FBI who are going to continue to be career professionals".
