GOP lawmaker says Trump allegations, if true, are grounds for impeachment

The Senate intelligence committee wants former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to appear before the panel in both open and closed sessions.

This week, the questions centered on the momentous revelations that President Donald Trump gave classified information to Russian Federation in the Oval Office - and that fired FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo saying Trump asked him to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

President Donald Trump asked the former FBI director, James Comey, to let former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn off the hook in an investigation into his Russian contacts, reports quoting a memo prepared by Mr. Comey said, pushing the 45th presidency into a potentially tenure-threatening crisis.

Senate votes to mandate autism coverage
The court found that the Legislature improperly used race as the predominant factor in setting boundaries in the 12 districts. Supporters argued that the measure should protect all kinds of history, not just Confederate symbols.

House Republican Justin Amash of MI says it could be grounds for impeachment if President Donald Trump urged FBI Director James Comey to end a probe of former adviser Michael Flynn.

The Congressman said that his call for impeachment is a position of conscience for him and asked the American people to speak up. He said that "everybody in this country gets a fair trial, (whether) it's the president or anyone else".

Soon thereafter another Republican lawmaker was seen supporting the impeachment move. However, Amash has been a consistent critic of Trump, as well as an opponent of House Republican leadership and his views are not widely representative. "I do (have confidence in Trump)", he told reporters at a news conference.

Curbelo, the most endangered Republican, was already feeling the heat from constituents over his vote for the GOP health care bill when NBC News visited his district earlier this month and seems to be losing patience with the White House' handling of fired FBI Director James Comey.

Comey was in charge of the investigation into whether members of Trump's campaign conspired with Russian Federation and possibly interfered with the 2017 presidential election. "It is obvious there are some people out there that want to harm the president, but we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House", Ryan told reporters. He says there is "clearly a lot of politics being played".

Warner said Wednesday that he expected "an answer from acting director McCabe in the next 72 hours". He had not been briefed on it according to the national security advisor.
