Rep. Justin Amash First Republican to Raise Impeachment for President Trump

20 May 2017, 01:18 | Marion Schneider

The degree to which Republicans have continued to ignore or excuse President Donald Trump's reckless behavior, which now can be seen as endangering national security, has not surprised politics-watchers.

First, Comey says the president asked for his loyalty.

"Asking FBI to drop an investigation is obstruction of justice".

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday became the third congressional committee requesting any memos fired FBI Director James Comey wrote about his communications with President Donald Trump and other top US officials, and the committee also asked the White House to provide recordings of interactions with Comey.

The extraordinary confirmation of the report triggered a new round of moderation from the White House.

Such a request, all by itself, could represent an obstruction of justice.

It takes a majority of the House to impeach a president and a two-thirds vote of the Senate to remove him from office.

It was the premise of the story that was false, he argued, because the President had a right to share what he wanted to, and his disclosures were "appropriate to the conversation". And then everyone said it looks like he is not a very good as a lawyer because he is just making the case against himself, but there was always some question whether or not it could be interpreted in an innocent way.

Does this rise to the level of criminal obstruction of justice?

Republicans outside the White House also hope the trip provides some breathing room from scandal. "Sure. But not against a president".

"Section Four outlines the procedure for removing the president "if the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office". "Neither legal authority nor policy nor experience suggests that a federal government entity can maintain the ordinary common law attorney-client privilege to withhold information relating to a federal criminal offense". Then, in a telling sign the temperature was going up, he said at a GOP dinner Tuesday night that the Trump situation has reached "Watergate size and scale". He also called on Robert Bennett, now of Hogan Lovells, in civil litigation brought by Paula Jones.

Inserted into the constitution in 1967, this amendment deals with succession to the presidency, stating that the vice president will become president if the sitting president resigns or dies in office. She cited Trump's out-of-court comments about the judge overseeing the Trump University fraud litigation as an example.

"That shows the difficulty of having a client who won't listen", Wilkinson said.

"One-word answer: No", Mukasey said. So the only remedy available against a sitting president would be impeachment. "We can't even wrap up one Russian Federation fiasco before we're on to the next one".

Any representative can initiate the presidential impeachment process. Neither responded to my emails. And since the people who are in office in the Republican Party are elected by people who listen nearly exclusively to the self-contained conservative media they have much less incentive to actually do something because they fear they will be punished by their constituents if they were to betray or abandon the president of the United States.

The New York Times reports that Comey created memos regarding his interactions with the president, documenting what he perceived as improper efforts to influence an ongoing investigation.

Asked about the memo and a shift in strategy on Air Force One Wednesday, press secretary Sean Spicer repeatedly pointed to the statement, declining to elaborate.
