Trump to evangelicals: We're 'under siege,' will be stronger

Trump to evangelicals: We're 'under siege,' will be stronger

The current allegations of either him or his team being in direct contact with the Russians before elections, or if he is thought to have acted in a way which could be deemed as an obstruction of justice while investigation into the Russian link are going on, along with the firing of Comey, can possibly be looked at in such a light.

The online betting site Ladbrokes on Thursday reduced the odds of a Trump impeachment by eight percent, from 44 to 36 percent, London Financial Times editor Matthew Garrahan reported on Twitter. Former chairwoman Dianne Feinstein of California told reporters after Comey testified that "Suspicion is one thing, evidence is another", adding "we don't have all the facts yet".

Green's announcement came shortly after the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee released former FBI Director James Comey's assertions that Trump urged him to end his investigation into Russian government connections to Trump allies.

Even though Comey presented undeniable evidence of obstruction of justice today, a Republican Congress will not begin impeachment hearings without huge public pressure. Then they'll really impeach Trump.

The lawmakers, however, said on Wednesday they are writing drafts of articles of impeachment to submit one.

Mr Comey said that at dinner with Mr Trump on January 27, the President brought up the dossier of salacious material that had been collected by former British intelligence official Christopher Steele and which he and Barack Obama had been informed of. And such a doubt has existed as the Supreme Court of the United States refused to clearly define what are the matters that lead to such an offence during the last time a President against who such a proceeding was initiated, Richard Nixon. The Republicans control both the House and the Senate, and the party is still at least superficially sticking by Trump's side.

Other Democrats say they want to see the outcome of the investigation before rendering a decision on whether to impeach Trump. Two U.S. presidents have been impeached by the House: Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998.

MoveOn's Executive Director Anna Galland described Trump's actions as "exactly the kind of fundamental abuse of power that the founders believed is an impeachable offense". Both were later acquitted at trials held by the Senate. Richard Nixon resigned from his office, making way for Gerald Ford to take office in 1974.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? "Military takeover in Turkey will hopefully lead to real democracy - not Erdogan Authoritarianism", he tweeted at the time. Who will combine that testimony with Trump's other questionable interactions with members of his cabinet when he reports his findings to the Justice Department and Congress.

He added that this begs the question if this was the only time the Obama administration exerted political pressure on Comey . Comey , who was sacked by Trump on May 9, repeatedly stated that Trump has lied in his accounts of their interactions.

Green, however, paid no attention to those sentiments and realities and continued his push as the most prominent proponent for impeachment in the Congress.

Only two presidents in US history, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, have ever been impeached, but both were acquitted of any convictions. And the next step of conviction in the Senate needs to vote with a majority of two-thirds of total votes.
