Donald Trump 'faces IMPEACHMENT': Expert says 'worse than Watergate'

White House on lockdown as yet another person tries to break

Writing in the Washington Post, professor Tribe says, "The time has come for Congress to launch an impeachment investigation of President Trump for obstruction of justice".

A historian who has accurately predicted every presidential election since 1984 - including Donald Trump - believes the 45th president will not be able to finish his four-year term.

"You're basically saying, 'If you will assure me that I'm not going to be under investigation, then maybe I'll keep you on, '" Tribe said.

Trump fired James Comey as FBI Director last week. United States intelligence has concluded that Moscow and its intelligence agencies interfered in the election that saw Trump deafeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. Green believes that Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, as well as his subsequent admission that he considered the Russian Federation investigation while dismissing Comey, constitutes an act of obstruction. It is important for people to know the House impeaches and that the Senate can have a trial where the president may or may not be found guilty. One important example is Trump's brazen defiance of the foreign emoluments clause, which is created to prevent foreign powers from pressuring U.S. officials to stray from undivided loyalty to the United States. The Constitution specifies the grounds for impeachment as "treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors".

"To wait for the results of the multiple investigations underway is to risk tying our nation's fate to the whims of an authoritarian leader", Tribe wrote.

"The only parallel is Watergate, and this is much more serious".

He noted that Comey was sacked one day after former acting attorney general Sally Yates' testified before Congress, and the president admitted the FBI director's dismissal was related to the Russian Federation investigation. However, if the White House does have tapes of President Trump's conversations with Comey, it should turn them over promptly to Congress and the FBI investigators. Some Democratic elected officials have also increasingly begun floating impeachment since Comey's dismissal, which reports suggest was motivated by the president's personal mistrust.

To say that this does not in itself rise to the level of "obstruction of justice" is to empty that concept of all meaning. In Clinton's case, the ostensible obstruction consisted exclusively in lying under oath about a sordid sexual affair that may have sullied the Oval Office but involved no abuse of presidential power as such. "Impeachment will happen if handful of Republicans in Congress join Dems to put country above party". He added that it would be a "terrible shame" if they are preoccupied of the 2018 midterm elections.
