Democrat Representative on House Floor: Trump 'Must Be Impeached'

Democrat Representative on House Floor: Trump 'Must Be Impeached'

Warner would not say if Comey had accepted the committee's invitation - sent Wednesday - but said he was confident Comey will appear. Cory Gardner added, "The bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has asked James Comey to appear in front of the committee, and they have asked acting FBI Director McCabe for any notes or memos prepared by Comey regarding communication with the Department of Justice and White House on the ongoing Russian Federation investigation".

"You can't let your critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams", Trump said during his commencement address in New London, Conn. "Adversity makes you stronger. But I'm happy to subpoena them, which I can do unilaterally", the congressman said.

The outburst came amid intensifying pressure on the president in the wake of his firing of James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week, in the midst of a probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian attempts to tilt the United States election in his favour.

The existence of the memo, which was reportedly written by Mr Comey himself, suggests that Mr Trump had attempted to influence investigations into his associates and Russian Federation.

Meantime, leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee are asking the FBI to turn over memos prepared by Comey regarding communications he had with the White House or Justice Department about the FBI's Russian Federation investigations, Politico reported. They had previously asked Comey to testify in closed session this week, but he declined.

His comments were the first since Mr Trump was hit with accusations that he shared secrets while meeting Mr Lavrov in Washington, the latest crisis to hit the White house amid existing investigations into whether Mr Trump's aides colluded with Moscow during the campaign. Comey then purportedly wrote down the conversation in a memo.

Chaffetz said he doesn't know if the memo exists, but he is taking the news report seriously.

Trump, whose administration has been dogged by allegations that Russia helped him win the White House and that he and his allies are too cosy with Moscow, has defended his decision to discuss intelligence with the Russians after media reports of the meeting alarmed some USA and foreign politicians.

Green joined other Democratic lawmakers to call for the president's impeachment, although Democratic leadership in Congress said it was too soon to move ahead with such action, Fox News reported.

"I think our congressional delegation is really trying to stay focused on the things that matter most, which is the agenda", Boyd Matheson, president of the Sutherland Institute, said, listing issues such as Bears Ears National Monument and health care.

"We need the facts", Ryan said.

Trump made no direct public comment about the controversy, but told graduating seniors at the Coast Guard Academy in the northeastern state of Connecticut, "No politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly" than he has been.
