Online speculators increasing bets on early end to Trump presidency

"Increasing doubts over President Trump's ability to proceed with his economic policies will likely hurt United States dollars momentum for the time being, even though expectations for bold U.S. economic policy had already declined before this", Nomura noted.

The revelation that fired FBI Director James Comey composed memos that detailed Trump's attempts to quash the investigation of disgraced National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has even made some Republicans sit up and take notice.

Do impeached officials go to prison?

Citing a slew of recent controversies - including Comey's messy dismissal, as well as recent reports of Trump sharing classified information with Russia - Gergen said that things appear to be unraveling at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Can you say "obstruction of justice"? "If you don't have that case you are just participating in more hearsay".




"Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey", Trump said in an interview MSNBC aired Friday. He told Chris Matthews that the burden of proof is on the White House.

The Judiciary Committee also wants any recordings of meetings between Trump and Comey. According to The Hill, Amash was also asked if he trusted Comey or Trump's word more. "So from my point of view this is of enormous outcome for his presidency". "This person will be responsible for restoring Americans' confidence in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and ensuring that he or she does not pledge loyalty to the president, but pledges loyalty to the Constitution".

"I think it's up to them now to come forward with whatever it is they have that the conversation didn't take place". Impeachment is now in the national zeitgeist, there's a Web site with nearly a million signed onto a petition imploring the Senate to impeach Trump.

If the complicated process is followed through, Trump would be the third president to be impeached, after Andrew John and Bill Clinton. No president has been removed from office using that.

In a conference call with ME reporters, King, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said he learned on Tuesday that Comey "is planning to testify in public" and he'll likely do so "in the recently near future". "Ultimately, what's at stake is members of Congress and indeed the country as a whole believe that the president's conduct is corrupt enough that his removal wouldn't simply be nullification of the election by other means. If the president does it again on that issue or another issue, then we will seek to remove him from office", Castro told BuzzFeed News in February.
