The California Democrat also reacted cautiously to the news that Trump had reportedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

That is not to say the Republicans' current congressional leadership would abandon Trump in the light of similarly dispositive evidence of presidential perjury. The President was already under investigation about ties between his campaign and Moscow during the run-up to the election but now there are issues surrounding classified information.

Adam Schiff, the highest-ranked Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said that if this intervention by the President could be confirmed it would represent "interference or obstruction of the investigation". "So I would urge the White House ... we really need to try to reset here because the American people are quickly losing the trust and confidence in our government".

As the backlash escalates to Trump's firing of Comey last week, Democratic lawmakers are increasingly raising the prospect of impeachment.

Senators: Rosenstein knew of Comey firing before memo
Even as he erupted anew, fellow Republicans expressed hopes the move would restore some calm to a capital plunged into chaos. Now Mueller will have almost unfettered access to witnesses and information, and the ability to bring criminal charges.

Following impeachment proceedings in the House, the matter would then move to the Senate to determine the President's guilt and removal from office.

The White House, needless to say, denies that Trump ever made such a request. It is the kind of conversation that seems completely in character for Trump, who, over the course of the campaign and now in office, has betrayed no - zero - understanding of the necessary separation of the president and his Justice Department when it comes to making independent judgments about political matters and political opponents.

"In Watergate, we had the special prosecutor, but we also had a separate, ongoing impeachment investigation by the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, which is very different - it doesn't only have to consider criminal activity".

Concerns that businessman and former reality TV star Trump's economic reforms could be slowed and he might even face the threat of impeachment has dented demand for the dollar.

The alleged information leak, which happened just a day after the dismissal of someone investigating his ties with Russian Federation, has sparked great concern over Trump's motives.

There are several federal statutes that criminalise obstruction of justice if a person corruptly "obstructs, influences or impedes any official proceeding". "I do think that all of us ought to talk about what a wrenching experience that would be for the country".

Green also noted that "impeachment does not mean the president will be found guilty".

So why did the president ask his vice president and attorney general to leave the room?
