Congressman calls for Trump's impeachment on House floor

18 May, 2017, 00:05 | Author: Evan Mason

"If such a scenario takes shape, a significant part of the [Republican] party members may endorse the impeachment of the USA president", Garbuzov remarked, referring to deep divisions within the Republican Party. "The main thing the bill seems to have done is get Democrats even more fired up for 2018 than they were already".

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today with a heavy heart", Green said.

Last week, Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan suggested the country needed an "impeachment clock" to track how close the president was to being removed from office.

To be sure, Trump is not on the brink of impeachment.

Congressional Republicans have taken some criticism for expressing their "concerns" about President Trump's behavior, as a series of scandals involving Russian Federation and the FBI investigation into his campaign unfold, and leaving it at that. He has committed an impeachable act and must be charged.

He later penned a letter to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, requesting that "all memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings referring or relating to" the alleged communications between Comey and Trump be handed over by May 24. This is what I believe in.

Impeachment, or as Alexander Hamilton called it in the Federalist #65, "a method of national inquest into the conduct of public men", would be a nasty and partisan affair in the current climate.

“I think were in impeachment territory.”.

"We have an out-of-control president who gives classified intelligence to the Russians".

And some Democrats are starting to at least entertain the possibility of impeachment. Jentleson now works for the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

"I mean Jesus, it's not even Memorial Day!" said one Democratic operative. In the case of that event, the majority of the House would have to vote to impeach President Trump, while a two-thirds majority of the Senate would have to vote to convict him.

One practical result of this change is how it will affect the prevalence of " fake news " on the social networking site. Lemp wrote, adding that Facebook's News Feed has become "the new front page for every media company in the world".


When discussing Donald Trump and the Russian Federation investigation the "I" word is now in play. I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate: "History is watching". "What are the rules that he may have violated?"

The case went to trial in the Senate, which ultimately voted on February 12, 1999, to acquit the president of the charges.

So why are so many calling for it?

"I was in the Nixon administration, as you know, and I thought after watching the Clinton impeachment I'd never see another one", Gergen told host Anderson Cooper.

According to Sinelnikov-Orishak, right now Trump's opponents can only facilitate the creation of a Senate Commission and appoint a special prosecutor to exert substantial pressure on the U.S. president trying to unearth as many damning facts about him as possible. "He was using his power to do that, and when James Comey didn't go along with him, when he wasn't his boy, he fired him".

Jay Gonzalez said Wednesday that no president is above the law and Trump has crossed a line and must be held accountable. Elizabeth Warren said at the CAP conference on Tuesday.

"If there's nothing there, so be it".

Perhaps we need a review from the Constitution on what exactly impeachment proceedings are for.

Jentleson said he wasn't particularly surprised that members of Congress were hesitant to come out and say so. Furthermore, there are not so many people who really desire it, he added. "So folks at the state and local level, who aren't going to be involved in the process itself, probably feel a little freer to express themselves". "And the representatives are responding to that", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told BuzzFeed News, when asked if he expected the city council's idea to spread to other cities.

U.S. stocks and the dollar fell and bond prices rose as the controversy around Trump raised investor questions about his ability to deliver on his policy agenda, including tax and regulatory changes. After all, the author cites "a website with more than 976,000 signatures" petitioning Congress to kick Trump out of the White House. In the wake of the Civil War, Johnson clashed with Republicans who wanted Southern states to pay a higher price to rejoin the union.
