As well as seeing lawmakers now openly talk about impeachment, political punters are voting with their wallets, as bookmakers reported Wednesday that Trump is odds-on to depart the White House under a cloud of controversy during his first term. “And that includes the President of the United States of America”, Green said on the House floor. This is where I stand, I will not be moved. “The President must be impeached”, Green said.
“There was a question about impeachment”, he noted.
Green’s comments were just the latest in a series of criticism directed at the president amid reports he asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn. “But everybody merits a fair trail”, he was quoted as saying.
Ryan, the House Speaker, told reporters at the Capitol that Congress must gather the relevant information before “rushing to judgment”. He also urged agents investigating Russia’s meddling in the election not to worry about politics or how their probe might affect those in power.
“That is our job, to be sober, to be passionate and to follow the facts wherever they may lead”, he said. Kim Kardashian is an outsider at 275-to-1 while Kevin Spacey, who plays President Frank Underwood in House of Cards, is at 200-to-1.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Jaon Chaffetz wrote on Twitter Tuesday evening that he is going to get the Comey memo “if it exists”. A Comey associate was quite specific to the Wall Street Journal: “Comey was careful not to release information to the president about the ongoing probe into Russia’s alleged meddling in the USA election because he believed doing so would cross ethical and legal boundaries”. White House aides did not respond to morning emails, and even numerous president’s loyal surrogates were silent.
