Democratic candidate for governor urges impeachment of Trump

Concerns that businessman and former reality TV star Trump's economic reforms could be slowed and he might even face the threat of impeachment has dented demand for the dollar.

However, the US President thinks the way people are reacting to his time in office is not justified.

So far, Representatives Walter Jones and Justin Amash are the only two Republicans in the House to support the petition, which would not succeed unless 23 members of their party to join all 193 Democrats in signing it.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Comey documented each phone call and meeting he had with President Donald Trump in an apparent attempt to create a paper trail of the president's efforts to sway investigators.

Under this vague definition, a prosecutor could "probably put together an incredible case" against Mr Trump, said Julie O'Sullivan, a professor at the Georgetown University Law Centre.

Trump will meet with King Salman of Saudi Arabia, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before going to Rome, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels and a G7 meeting in Sicily on the tour that will take in some of the world's most prominent religious sites.

The White House denied that Trump had asked Comey to stop any investigation. His task is not to decide whether or not the president merits impeachment.

I do not envy the lawyers and communications specialists whose burden it is to represent the president in his credibility contest with Comey, whom Trump dismissed, by his own account, over his frustration at the FBI's continuing interest in the Trump-Russia nexus.

Speaking to US Coast Guard Academy graduates in CT, he said: "No politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly". Never ever, ever give up.

However if the allegations are true, Democrats have said that Mr Trump could be guilty of obstruction of justice.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Trump had not passed on any secrets to Lavrov. "They're not saying that anymore". Ryan stuck to that line and told reporters on Wednesday he still has confidence in Trump. Rather, as the great expositor of impeachment - and the Constitution - Alexander Hamilton said, 'We move to impeachment because of the misconduct of public men, the violation of some public trust, and these relate to injuries done to society itself.' And we have certainly seen at least probable cause of that, if not proof of that, as yet. But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House.

Green's call comes one day after The New York Times reported that Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey in February to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was sacked for misrepresenting his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period. "So there are a lot of unanswered questions".

Republican Senator John McCain, who has called for the creation of a special bipartisan congressional panel to investigate the Russian Federation matter, compared the controversies enveloping Trump to the Watergate scandal that forced Republican President Richard Nixon to resign in 1974.

According to a report from The Washington Examiner, McCain told reporters on Wednesday that he does not believe "many people take [Trump impeachment calls] very seriously". Ryan backed Chaffetz's request.
