McCain: Calls to impeach Trump should not be taken 'very seriously'

Various media outlets, including the New York Times, have quoted a memo from Comey that reportedly says Trump asked him to stop investigating his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for his links with Moscow.

Both Republicans and Democrats have called for greater clarity around what exactly happened between Comey and Trump in private meetings in recent months.

In fact, only two presidents have actually been impeached: Andrew Johnson in the 1860s, and Bill Clinton in 1998 amid the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The Comey memo caused alarm on Capitol Hill and raised questions about whether Trump attempted to interfere with a federal investigation, something that might constitute obstruction of justice and could potentially be invoked in an attempt to impeach Trump.

Net receivables and leases financed by JDCC were $32.015 billion at April 30, 2017, compared with $33.208 billion at May 1, 2016. Shares of Deere traded up 5.5% at $118.81 in the premarket Friday morning, a new 52-week high if it holds after the bell.

"I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States for obstruction of justice", Green boomed from the House chamber.

Bookmakers also saw their biggest market for a French election earlier this year, buoyed by growing enthusiasm for political betting, an unpredictable result and a ban on betting on politics in France. We've already seen Trump take things of value. It is the kind of conversation that seems completely in character for Trump, who, over the course of the campaign and now in office, has betrayed no - zero - understanding of the necessary separation of the president and his Justice Department when it comes to making independent judgments about political matters and political opponents.

So far, Representatives Walter Jones and Justin Amash are the only two Republicans in the House to support the petition, which would not succeed unless 23 members of their party to join all 193 Democrats in signing it. "But I think we're in impeachment territory now for the first time".

In addition, Green told ThinkProgress the president's possible admission that the FBI's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation played a role in the decision to terminate Comey.

Senate panel wants James Comey to testify
And then there was the story that he had tried to stop the FBI investigation into his former national security adviser. Mueller was nominated to serve as the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by President George W.

I do not envy the lawyers and communications specialists whose burden it is to represent the president in his credibility contest with Comey, whom Trump dismissed, by his own account, over his frustration at the FBI's continuing interest in the Trump-Russia nexus.

On CNN, Gergen said that "from a lay point of view" it appeared Trump was trying to impede the FBI's investigation. As a political matter, it more and more looks that way. Comey shared his notes from the conversation with aides, who in turn described the notes to reporters.

Entering the row, Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied the allegations that his officials were given classified information during the meeting. Richard Nixon faced impeachment, but resigned before proceedings could get underway.

As the backlash escalates to Trump's firing of Comey last week, Democratic lawmakers are increasingly raising the prospect of impeachment. Ryan backed Chaffetz's request.
