Dem calls for Trump impeachment on House floor

Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump Wednesday morning, the first member of Congress to officially request leveling charges against the President from the House floor.

The new willingness to investigate the Trump-related links to Russian Federation came after associates of then-FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump abruptly fired last week while he was heading the agency's Russian Federation probe, said that Comey wrote notes after a February meeting with the president saying that Trump had asked him to drop a probe of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

According to sources cited in the report, that intelligence came from a U.S. ally who had not authorised Washington to pass it on to Moscow.

Putin went on to say that Russian Federation was ready to provide the notes taken at Trump's meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak to Congress, if the White House approves.

Mossad?s former chief further added that the revelation may be a significant blow to Israel's intelligence about ISIS but White House insisted that Trump did not compromised national security by sharing information with Russian officials.

Democratic lawmakers have demanded that the Justice Department name a special prosecutor to investigate potential ties between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

"It simply means the House of Representatives will bring charges against the president".

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

But Biden said Obama promised him he'd be the last guy in the room on every important issue - a promise that was ultimately kept. He even admitted to having occasional "shouting matches" with his former superior, but praised Obama's character and work ethic.

"If in fact what was in the memo is true, it's very concerning and we need to get to the bottom of that", Kinzinger said on CNN.

"It's hard to imagine what else these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next", said Putin, referring to unnamed U.S. politicians.

While investors would cheer a tax cut, the White House and Republicans have their sights set higher.

"I'm sure we're going to go on to hear from Mr. Comey about why, if this happened as he allegedly describes, why didn't he take action at the time? So there are a lot of unanswered questions".

A few Republicans have began to call for an independent probe.

If the Trump administration deemed it appropriate, Putin said Russian Federation could hand over a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov to USA lawmakers to reassure them that no secrets were revealed.

"I wouldn't put much credibility into whatever Putin's notes are", Rubio said on Fox News.
