Trump aides knew Flynn was under investigation prior to inauguration

While Democrats fumed at the revelations, exasperated Republicans in Congress anxious Trump's repeated scandals and gaffes could scupper their legislative agenda.

The administration spent the first half of Tuesday defending Trump's disclosure of classified information to senior Russian officials.

News broke Tuesday that Trump in February asked then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn - a request critics have called obstruction of justice.

The letter ends with a request for an immediate vote on a motion to subpoena the White House for documents it refused to furnish following a March 22 request. "I hope you can let this go".

"I think that obstruction of justice was the number one charge against Nixon that brought him down", Gergen responded. The investigation goes well beyond Flynn, Manafort and a possible American connection, to include how Russian intelligence services carried out the campaign of fake news and leaking hacked emails that intelligence officials say was meant to hurt Hillary Clinton and benefit Donald Trump.

The person who described the Comey memo to the AP was not authorized to discuss it by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel appointed!"

Secondly, people in both settings will only have to contribute to care costs from their capital above a floor of £100,000. In media questions later, May responded by expanding on her vision for Britain , again giving little detail.

Comey recounted the incident in a memo, read to the Times by an associate, which quotes Trump as saying: "He is a good guy".

Now, we find that the president had the audacity to ask FBI Director James Comey FBI to compromise his sworn duty and give Michael Flynn a pass on his lying to the vice president and to the FBI about his paid involvement with the Russians and the Turkish government. The more immediate concern for Trump is the mounting pile of investigations, with new elements added Wednesday. So, from my point of view, this is of enormous outcome for his presidency.

"I'll be forced to issue him (Lavrov) with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us".

Gergen wasn't the only moderate voice to suggest that a plausible case for Trump's removal was emerging. He is a New York Times bestselling author and hosts the popular weekend talk radio program, "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio". Both were acquitted. Richard Nixon was almost impeached, but he resigned before the process could start. "It is people who are self-selected loyalists, who supported him in the campaign, who daily go to work for him". "Lots of information is shared on the understanding that the USA will be able to keep it safe", Taid said. The congressman's office declined to provide any further comment to FOX 17 following the off-the-cuff remark. "That is what Congress does in conducting oversight of the Executive branch".

"Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that goal if not in session".

Two Democrats in the House of Representatives, Maxine Waters and Al Green, have called for articles of impeachment to be drawn up, but most lawmakers are holding fire, fearing it could transform the process into a purely partisan exercise.
