From U.S. House Floor, Texas Democrat Calls For Trump's Impeachment

Rep. Al Green called for Trump's impeachment on the House floor, calling Trump's actions revealed in Comey's memo as obstruction of justice. I do this because I believe in the great ideals that this country stands for.

This charging, of the President, is known constitutionally as impeachment. He said Trump has committed acts that "amount to intimidation and obstruction". But it has now reached 48%-outpacing for the first time the percentage of Americans who oppose Trump's impeachment (41%).

Donald Trump's abrupt firing of an FBI director who was leading the investigation of the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation has sparked a new flurry of calls for impeachment. Last week it was Trump's stunning firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Other Democrats, however, are saying Trump is in impeachment territory.

President Andrew Johnson was impeached and almost removed from office after his policies for reconstruction of the South angered radical Republicans in Congress who felt his approach was too lenient on the former Confederate states.

Amash was one of two House Republicans to co-sponsor a Democratic bill - which preceded Mueller's appointment - to establish an independent commission to investigate Russia's role in the election.

Republicans now have 52 senators, so 19 of them would have to break ranks and vote to convict a Republican president, assuming all Democrats voted to do so.

USA congressmen from Idaho aren't, however, as quick to add further pressure without additional facts.

For that reason, members of Congress are impatiently waiting for Comey to accept their invitation to testify before them, and give his version of events for the first time. And only after collecting all facts can he make a reasoned decision about the path forward. You don't need to say the I-word to turn the midterms into a referendum on Trump. "That fact is that the acting director of the FBI, (Andrew McCabe) who is a good friend of and a supporter of Comey, testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on May 11, 2017". His public approval rating hovers around 40 percent, by far a record low for a new president.

But in a hypothetical impeachment environment, she told MarketWatch, "rank and file Republicans would be in full damage control mode and would want to show that if there's one thing Republicans can be counted on, it's tax cuts".

"White House leadership will be important in order to pass tax reform, and the administration's ability to lead politically is greatly in doubt", they write.

The congressman, who stressed that his call for charges is not politically motivated, urged House GOP leaders to put aside party politics and move ahead with the impeachment process. If they do own impeachment, they blow up the tenuous Republican-Trump coalition. And when you disclose classified information, classified conversations that you have access to, it is an act of treason. The intellectual history of our jurisprudence that is reflected in this absurd assertion is of interest in itself, [1] but suffice it to say that, as we are reminded in Marbury v. Madison, the mere fact that a court can not deliver a remedy for a violation of the Constitution in no way removes the obligation of government officials to obey the Constitution.

Bettors on both sides of the Atlantic are ramping up wagers in niche online markets over whether Donald Trump will serve out a full term as US president in the wake of controversies surrounding the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.
