White House lawyers research impeachment procedures

White House attorneys are said to be researching impeachment procedures, CNN reported Friday, amid an avalanche of unflattering news hitting President Donald Trump's White House.

Earlier this week, Trump advisers met at the White House to discuss the possible need for Trump to retain personal counsel.

Santorum, who voted to convict former President Bill Clinton of perjury and obstruction of justice during his impeachment trial in 1999, agreed that Republicans would now oppose impeachment. The person may be cooperating or have information of use to investigators.
