Lone congressman calls to impeach Trump on House Floor: Does it matter?

19 May 2017, 11:40 | Marion Schneider

Given the trajectory of developments over the past eight days - from firing FBI Director James B. Comey, to admitting that the Russian Federation investigation played a role in it, to sharing highly classified information with Russian Federation, to having asked Comey to shut down the investigation of former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn - Republicans must be wondering whether any hope is left for legislation. "There's an extraordinary convergence of [Republican] goals, and I hope we can come together, but I don't see it, facing as we are a new budget with the Budget Control Act [spending caps], and the notion we're cutting taxes".

Comey has been invited to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee next week.

The White House downplayed the report, however, saying at no time did Trump ask or order Comey or any other law enforcement official to stop an investigation, including the Russian Federation probe.

Beyer, who represents Arlington in Congress, is calling for a special prosecutor in the larger investigation into Trump and his presidential campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

"Today, the Committee sent two additional letters seeking information related to the Committee's ongoing investigation". And who's to say that the capricious and egotistical tycoon will decide the job's not up to him, and go of his own accord?

But she said the two scandals stemmed from the same problem - Mr Trump's lack of political experience.

McConnell's office added in a statement that Comey publicly testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee would be "appropriate and timely". Sources close to Comey and who are familiar with the memo said the Times account is accurate. "We had a very successful meeting with the foreign minister of Russian Federation", he told reporters firing a hail of questions at him.

Moreover, under legal precedent from the investigation of President Bill Clinton, President Trump's communications with White House lawyers may not be shielded by attorney-client privilege.

Why would [President Donald] Trump be requesting [former FBI director James] Comey drop the [Michael] Flynn investigation?

Other Republican members of Michigan's congressional delegation acknowledged that the Comey memo raises questions but stopped well short of Amash's agreeing that reports are true, it could be ground for impeachment.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

"But everybody gets a fair trial in this country", Amash told reporters as he left a House GOP conference meeting.

Under this fever logic, the president must give total deference to the Federal Bureau of Investigation director or risk criminal charges.

"The president, I think. has the power to direct that an investigation cease, but that wasn't - as the story is told, that's not what happened", the former attorney general said. Really, if a freshman can refuse to spin for the White House, why can't lawmakers with years of seniority in no danger of losing their seats?

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Noah Bookbinder called Mueller "the right man for the job" in a release, adding, "It is our honest hope that he is able to get to the bottom of this situation - not just the truth about Russia's interference with the 2016 election and any coordination it may have had with the Trump campaign, but also the truth about the president's apparent obstruction of the FBI's Russian Federation investigation".
