Republicans begin to say Donald Trump could be impeached

A U.S. Representative from Texas has called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

"I think at some point that should happen".

"I wouldn't put much credibility into whatever Putin's notes are", Rubio said on Fox News.

"We'll see how that plays out".

Jason Chaffetz, who chairs the House Oversight Committee, demanded all correspondence relating to communications between Comey and the president be presented by 24 May. "We need to follow the facts wherever they may lead". "But I'm happy to subpoena them, which I can do unilaterally", the congressman said.

Sen. Orrin, Hatch, R-Utah, is waiting to get more information on "these sensitive matters" from the White House and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a meeting Thursday.

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.

A small but growing number of Trump's Republican colleagues in Congress, along with Democrats, called for a special prosecutor or commission to examine ties between Trump and his aides to Russian Federation, an investigation going beyond those already being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the intelligence committees in both the Senate and House of Representatives. A statement issued Tuesday evening did not directly refer to The Times report, but denied that Trump had asked Comey or anyone else to end the Flynn probe.

When Trump then pressed for "honest loyalty", Comey told him, "You will have that", the associates said. The White House has said Comey's firing was unrelated to the Russian Federation probe.

If you want to watch along to see what the House Democrats have to say about all of the recent news regarding Trump, Comey, Russia and more, head to this link to watch live at CNN.

The Times reported that an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

A day earlier, the Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, reported that Trump had shared highly classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov regarding an Islamic State group terror threat.

Other members of Utah's all-Republican congressional delegation did not respond to requests for comment on the Comey memo.

Russia has repeatedly said that anti-Russian politicians in the USA are using groundless fears of closer ties with Moscow to sabotage any rapprochement and damage Mr Trump in the process.

Matheson said Republicans are growing exhausted with the Trump administration because the distractions are keeping them from reforming government when they control the White House and Congress.

Chasing tweets and scandals take them away from what they were elected to do, he said.
