Florida Congressman Carlos Curbelo on Tuesday night said that President Donald Trump may have committed an "impeachable offense", making him the first Republican on Capitol Hill to make the case for it.

While speaking to the House, congressman Green used the opportunity to call for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

When asked if he was satisfied with the White House explanation, Risch said: "Oh, I don't really need the White House explanation on this".

"I think we still have a lot of investigation to do as to what the president was asking the FBI director and why", Mr. Schiff, California Democrat, said on CNN. "By Al doing that, it shows me it's really personal to him". It has been widely reported that foreign delegations have changed their accommodations to stay at Trump-branded hotels.

"I have reserved the right and continue to reserve the right to introduce a resolution of impeachment".

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.

Democrats speculated whether Comey's dismissal was because of the FBI investigation he led into ties between the president's associates and Russian Federation during the presidential campaign. But I tell you from a lay point of view it looked like he was trying to impede the investigation. "I have my subpoena pen ready", he said.

"It is not squishy New York Times conservatives who regard the president as a child, an intellectual void, a hopeless case, a threat to national security", Douthat wrote. The American people don't participate on Election Day only.

The 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967 in the wake of the assassination of John F Kennedy, sets out both a plan of succession for the presidency and a complicated and daunting means of removing a president deemed incapacitated.

Green had already called for Trump's impeachment at a press conference and on television earlier in the week.

The President has the utmost respect for the law enforcement agencies, and all investigations, the White House said, adding that this is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Comey.

"Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that goal if not in session". And typically, you would get an impeachment investigation, in the House Judiciary Committee, which by majority vote would decide whether or not to recommend articles of impeachment to the full House.
