Impeachment: Donald Trump's worst nightmare?

Al Green renewed calls for the impeachment of President Trump on the House floor Wednesday, in the wake of new allegations concerning the Russian Federation probe - as other lawmakers warned against a rush to judgment.

In fact, Congressman El Green from Texas on Wednesday became the first USA lawmaker to demand impeachment of Trump from the House floor.

This charging, of the President, is known constitutionally as impeachment. "It's a position of conscience for me".

The Constitution states that "The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors". "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said, according to a transcript of the meeting obtained by the New York Times.

President Richard Nixon resigned on August 8, 1974, after three articles of impeachment were drafted charging him with obstruction of justice, abuse of power and contempt of Congress.

The fired FBI boss in a memo released by the New York Times said he had been pressured by Trump to drop the investigation into a former national security adviser, General Mike Flynn.

Donald Trump's remarkable ability to persevere in the face of seemingly ruinous scandal may be at risk this week, as the uproar over his firing of James Comey gets louder by the day.

Two presidents have been impeached, and neither was convicted.

The issue was not discussed, Israeli officials said, adding that the intelligence relationship with the United States remained strong. Republicans now control both houses of Congress, and a significant number would have to abandon Trump for the articles of impeachment to go through.

When I know the battle is lost, I don't fight the battle. "The one I really enjoy to do is the transition from the first to the second season".

A few Republicans have even joined calls for a special prosecutor or independent investigator.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, (R-Wis.) stressed Wednesday that legislators were still doing the work of the American people.

They also want to see Comey's memos, as well as the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director himself, testifying before Congress.

It follows a report Comey wrote a memo after a conversation with Trump saying he was told: "I hope you can let this go" in relation to an investigation over links with Russian Federation. "History will judge us". "And I say it with sadness and reluctance". The odds are now at 21-10 that Trump is impeached in 2017.

In the end, it comes down to members of Congress deciding that Trump did something that meets constitutional requirements for impeachment.

President Bill Clinton became the second American president to be impeached and he narrowly avoided his removal from office.

The White House has denied the allegations of obstruction of justice.

President Andrew Johnson was impeached and almost removed from office after his policies for reconstruction of the South angered radical Republicans in Congress who felt his approach was too lenient on the former Confederate states.
