'We need to see Mr. Comey's memo,' Buchanan says

But most rank-and-file Republicans are resisting that step amid the uproar over former FBI Director James Comey's memo saying President Donald Trump asked him to end the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

It was widely reported that Russian Federation was hopeful of a resetting of the relationship between Moscow and Washington following Trump's election victory last November.

Free Speech For People is a national non-partisan non-profit organization founded on the day of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. FEC that works to renew our democracy and our Constitution for the people, not big money and corporate interests. What is each party's respective strategy moving forward? We later learned, through a New York Times report, that Trump foolishly divulged classified Israeli secrets to the Russians - which set off an global storm of intelligence agencies wondering if they could tell the White House anything at all with Trump in office.

White House communications staffers were absent on television this morning and the president did not communicate on his Twitter account. Ronald Reagan needed to be carefully managed so he didn't go off script inappropriately - but when he had a competent White House staff, he rarely harmed US interests by doing so. But the Democratic establishment has taken a more cautious tone.

The surest sign that the bottom is falling out from under Trump was a Wall Street Journal editorial that declared flatly: "Presidencies can withstand only so much turbulence before they come apart".

Back in November when Trump surprised the world by beating Hillary Clinton, U.K. bookmaker Ladbrokes gave Trump odds of 3-to-1 (a 25 percent chance) that he would leave office via impeachment or resignation during his first term. Prices of bonds, regarded as a safe haven in times of market turbulence, rallied. "And we need to see Mr. Comey's memo regarding his discussion with the president". In this past week, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, then trotted out a host of aides to say that it had nothing to do with the FBI investigation into his ties with Russian Federation.

A blue-ribbon special commission or a bipartisan special congressional committee to investigate alleged Russian interference would likewise be more about fact-gathering than about prosecuting.

The prospect was also broached by Republican Justin Amash who said if true, reports Mr Trump had pressured Mr Comey to drop the investigation would constitute grounds for impeachment. In other words, it's yet another example showing that the president of the United States is either incapable of or unwilling to learn what he needs to know to function even minimally in his job. "A resolution for an impeachment investigation in the House is needed". "I don't think that's possible right now".

WASHINGTON, D.C. The U.S. Senate votes in its trial against impeached U.S. President Bill Clinton on February 12,1999.

The Congressman said that his call for impeachment is a position of conscience for him and asked the American people to speak up.

Republican Adam Kinzinger, a member of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, was among Republicans calling for an independent probe. "I do think that all of us ought to talk about what a wrenching experience that would be for the country". In a letter last week, Trump said he agreed with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that Comey was "not able to effectively lead the Bureau".

As the controversy swirled in Washington, Trump had defiant words during a speech to U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduates in CT, complaining about media coverage and saying no politician in history "has been treated worse or more unfairly".

Texas Representative Al Green became the first lawmaker to officially call for Congress to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday, telling the House of Representatives he "will not be moved".

He'll be fired when enough Americans decide they can't abide him anymore.

"Nobody's going to believe them", Simpson told reporters.

What is serious now is the necessity to confront traits exhibited by a president who continues to defy basic conventions and traditions. We have an obligation to carry out our oversight, regardless of which party is in the White House.

McCain said an impeachment is not "rational" at this point, adding that all he can do is "judge the situation as it is". Ryan backed Chaffetz's request.
