Amash says Trump could be impeached if Comey memos are true

19 May 2017

Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), said Wednesday that impeachment is not something that should be rushed.

"Now is the time to put party considerations aside and do what is right for the country", by appointing an independent special prosecutor not beholden to the White House, Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer said.

Mr Putin's unusual quip on domestic politics in the U.S. came on Wednesday during a news conference at the Black Sea resort of Sochi, where he joked that Mr Lavrov was remiss for not passing on what he made clear he believed were non-existent secrets. "You can't let them get you down", he said.

Many Democrats and Republicans in Congress, however, are not ready to jump on the impeachment bandwagon just yet.

The Comey-Trump meeting came a day after Trump fired Flynn, a retired Army general, for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to Washington. Cory Gardner added, "The bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has asked James Comey to appear in front of the committee, and they have asked acting FBI Director McCabe for any notes or memos prepared by Comey regarding communication with the Department of Justice and White House on the ongoing Russian Federation investigation".

Amnesty said the executions took place between 2011 and 2015, but were probably still being carried out and amounted to war crimes.

"We need the memos, Comey should testify and I still believe that a special prosecutor should be named".

The Kremlin's expectation that Trump and Putin would meet soon after Trump took office have withered amid congressional and FBI investigations of the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

U.S. President Donald Trump's sharing of highly classified intelligence with Russian Federation could cause a problem with efforts to seek cooperation from allies in dealing with North Korea, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday.

Top Russian lawmakers also have vented frustration and anger over the latest commotion over Trump's relationship with Russia.

Several legal analysts have argued that any such request could be considered obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense. "The President must be impeached", Green said on the floor.

He reportedly shared the memo with top Federal Bureau of Investigation associates.

Amash's staff declined to comment further.

They agree there is the possibility of what they call a simple tax cut, but caution that even that is imperiled by a White House in damage-control mode.

Trump allegedly asked Comey to stop his investigation into Flynn. "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".
