Will Trump Be Impeached? Online Bets Assess the Odds

Worst treatment ever Donald Trump grumbles Dems demand deep probe			 0					By		Associated Press

I can understand Congressman's Greens's frustrations. "This is where I stand, I will not be moved".

Green insisted that he did not consider politics while deciding to call for Trump's impeachment.

For the record, the White House has denied the president asked Comey or anyone else "to end any investigation".

"That is our job, to be sober, to be passionate and to follow the facts wherever they may lead", he said.

He tweeted earlier today saying: 'Today on the floor of the Congress of the United States of America, I will call for the Impeachment of the President between 9am & 10am CST'.

It was the Democrat's turn to defend their president when Republicans formally began impeachment proceedings against Democratic President Bill Clinton. "I'm calling for an impeachment investigation".

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.

But the swirling questions about his conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the US Coast Guard Academy in CT that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly". "I think we've got a long way to go. We have to find out the truth of all of these different allegations".

The combination of Trump firing Comey while his campaign was under FBI investigation for possible collusion with Russian Federation and the president subsequently admitting that he had done so in part because of his frustrations over the Russian Federation investigation was a key factor for Democrats in US Congress to mull removing Trump from office. Carlos Curbelo of Florida, who is in a swing district, and Justin Amash of MI - talked openly about the possibility of bringing charges against Trump.

On Dec. 19, 1998, the House of Representatives impeached Clinton on the grounds of perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with an extramarital affair he had with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. "I do think that all of us ought to talk about what a wrenching experience that would be for the country".

Although the third scandal never involved impeachment, the Iran-Contra scandal forced two investigative committees to draft a joint report, and only 3 Republicans signed the official statement.

Mr Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

But House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters he continues to have full confidence in the president, and continued to dismiss the need for a special prosecutor just hours before the Department of Justice announced former FBI Director Robert Mueller would serve in the role.

Democratic politicians have been making the case for impeachment across the mainstream media ever since Trump's interview last week with NBC News's Lester Holt, when he said the decision to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director was his alone and that he was considering "the Russian Federation thing" when he handed down the dismissal directive via a letter delivered by the president's longtime security guard.
