White House lawyers research impeachment procedures

President Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time on February 28th 2017

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.

White House sources reportedly told the network that despite believing a likelihood of a Trump impeachment, they have begun the process of seeking counsel in the event an impeachment became necessary. And on Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed a special counsel to take over the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

Trump is the 45th President of the United States.

The wide scope also includes "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation" - which would appear to include any efforts Trump may have made to interfere with the FBI's investigation of National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.

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.
