Texas Congressman Al Green Calls for Trump's Impeachment

"I do this because I believe in the great ideals that this country stands for: Liberty and justice for all", he said. If a Unites States President is the official on trial for impeachment, the judge presiding over the case is the chief justice of the Supreme Court. Any member of the House can begin the process by bringing forth the articles of impeachment against the person who they want removed from office.

"President trump for their actions should be prosecuted by the House of representatives of the Congress of the United States". The definition is vague and has always been debated. Making light of the matter at a news conference in the Russian city of Sochi, Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of the meeting to US lawmakers if that would help reassure them. "It's a position of conscience for me", said Green.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer holds a news conference at the US Capitol following the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey by President Donald Trump May 9, 2017 in Washington, DC. "Our committee should already be conducting robust and transparent investigations".

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, whom Green repeatedly addressed, was not present at this morning's House session.

"I have no clue to be honest", said another Democratic operative when asked what party strategists made of the politics of impeachment after The New York Times reported on a Comey memo that alleges Trump asked the then-FBI director to drop his probe of the president's first national security advisor. "I'm calling for an impeachment investigation".

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.

Mourinho vows to keep United fresh for final
Former Liverpool forward Dean Saunders believes winning the EFL Cup and the Europa League should not be considered a good season for Manchester United.

Robert Reich, former labour secretary under President Bill Clinton, has argued that Mr Comey's firing amounts to an "impeachable offence".

It noted Rep. Maxine Waters of California had tweeted that she would "fight every day until he's impeached".

"Nobody should rush to embrace the most extraordinary remedy", Schiff said, because it could be perceived as "a way to nullify the election by other means". Got that? the Senate is 0-for-2 on convicting presidents from the other political party.

The bill is expected to undergo substantial changes when it moves to a Senate vote. As you know, he resigned, but obstruction of justice is a very, very serious matter and we're going to have to wait and see what the - what the terms were.

According to a Gallup survey released a day earlier, Trump's job approval ratings after more than 100 days in office were the least among four U.S. presidents. "This is about the soul of our democracy". While most senior Democrats say it is too soon to realistically discuss the possibility of impeaching Trump, investors are clearly unsettled. Just 25 percent of Americans support the American Health Care Act, while 52 percent are opposed. It was conducted after the Comey firing but before news broke of his memo or that Trump may have disclosed classified information from an ally to Russian Federation. Richard Blumenthal said that the whole incident "may well produce impeachment proceedings".

Asked by reporters if he thought the allegations against Trump were grounds for impeachment, Republican Representative Justin Amash said, "If the allegations are true, yes".
