Amash: Grounds for Impeachment if Comey's Trump Memo Is True

Amash: Grounds for Impeachment if Comey's Trump Memo Is True

USA stocks were on track for their worst day in nearly two months and the dollar dropped as investors fled risky assets amid uncertainty about the president's ability to deliver on tax and regulatory changes.

An embattled Donald Trump complained on Wednesday that no USA leader had been treated "more unfairly", as top Republican lawmakers demanded the facts on the swirling scandals convulsing his presidency.

"The President asked the FBI Director to shut down one investigation, then fired the FBI Director in order to shut down another investigation".

Gergen appeared on CNN Tuesday night to discuss to discuss the controversies that have overwhelmed the Trump administration in the past week.

Other members of Utah's all-Republican congressional delegation did not respond to requests for comment on the Comey memo. However, Amash has been a consistent critic of Trump, as well as an opponent of House Republican leadership and his views are not widely representative.

"I'm convinced that the president did nothing that he thought was outside the best interest of the country", said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.

"The American people deserve to know the truth", she said, adding it is imperative to restore the public's trust.




Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel shows the investigation into Russian meddling in last year's US election "will continue". "I hope you can let this go", Trump allegedly said. "Never, ever, give up", assuring them: "Things will work out just fine". "I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice". It is part of a paper trail Comey created documenting what he believed to be improper efforts to influence the investigation. Yates was sacked soon after because, the White House said, she refused to defend the president's travel ban in court.

The newspaper reported on Monday that Mr Trump had revealed sensitive information, possibly endangering a source when he met with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak last week.

Mr Trump urged graduating cadets to follow his example and "fight, fight, fight". Putin made light of the matter at a news conference in Russian Federation, saying Moscow was ready to hand a transcript of the meeting to USA lawmakers if that would help reassure them.

But Democrats said they think Republicans have not yet done enough. "I think something as material as that probably would have been something he would have shared, had it happened", he said.

"We need the facts", Ryan said.

Speaking at a joint news conference with the visiting Italian prime minister, Putin said on Wednesday Moscow initially found debates about Russia's meddling in US politics as "funny" but said Moscow is now "concerned because it's hard to imagine what the people who produce such nonsense can come up with next". Aides have said he hopes for a full explanation from the White House. Trump's meeting with top Russian diplomats last week came one day after he took the rare step of firing Comey. "So there are a lot of unanswered questions".

The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times, which said it was drafted after a February meeting in the Oval Office. While the Judiciary Committee has been conducting its own investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, it hasn't been as high-profile as the Senate Intelligence Committee's inquiry.
