Congressman calls for Trump's impeachment on House floor

Impeachment requires the support of a majority of members of the House of Representatives. Green pointed specifically to Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey last week, as well as Trump's tweet stating that Comey "better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations" and that Trump "acknowledged he considered the investigation when he fired" Comey. Just three months earlier, that same poll found that American's were evenly divided on the issue.

Putin told a news conference that he would be willing to turn over notes of Trump's meeting with the Russian diplomats if the White House agreed. I have said on previous occasions, and do now say again, the President should be impeached.

Later, the White House said that Comey was sacked because of his way of handling the Hillary Clinton's investigation of using a private email server.

Castro, of Texas, also fired a warning shot when he called for an investigation from the Justice Department to see if the administration violated court orders related to his controversial travel ban, one of the administration's first initiatives after Trump took office. But the swirling questions about his conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in CT that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly". Don't give in, don't back down. The Flynn investigation was part of a broader probe into Russian interference in last year's presidential election.

"I think we've seen this movie before", McCain said during a dinner Tuesday evening.

"It is not squishy New York Times conservatives who regard the president as a child, an intellectual void, a hopeless case, a threat to national security", Douthat wrote. The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times. "Arguably he's already obstructed justice and already violated the emoluments clause [regarding receiving gifts from foreign governments]". On online political stock market PredictIt, chances of Trump being impeached in 2017 hit a record 30 percent late Tuesday on heavy volume, following reports of a memo written by Comey that said Trump had asked him to end the FBI's investigation into ties between former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian Federation. The professor claimed that Trump's firing of Comey was "more serious than Watergate". "That President Trump seems wholly indifferent to this principle, or the potentially devastating consequences of its demise, is the real scandal here".

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said he would ask Comey for additional material as part of that panel's investigation.
