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.

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.

President Donald Trump listens during his meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, May 16, 2017.

A White House official told CNN that the claims are "not true".

Rep. Al Green, (D-TX), said on the House floor on Wednesday: 'The President must be impeached.

Comey Testimony Before Lawmakers in Doubt After Special Counsel Named
Many Democrats and some Republicans have raised alarms that the president may have tried to obstruct justice by firing Comey. Last week, during an interview with NBC News, Trump said he was going to terminate Comey "regardless of recommendation".

Officials in the White House believe the president still has the confidence of fellow Republicans in Congress.

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.
