A Member Of Congress Is Officially Calling For Trump's Impeachment, Here's Why

The greenback fell against other major currencies in the aftermath of allegations that Trump in February asked James Comey to end the FBI's investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Several Republicans took a similar approach Wednesday, but others called for Comey to testify and to produce the memo he reportedly wrote detailing his discussion with Trump about the Flynn investigation.

On Tuesday, Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he also thinks Trump could face impeachment after the president admitted sharing "terrorism" facts with Russian officials in the White House. Ryan's aides countered that in the same July 2016 opinion piece, Ryan also said those classified briefings could resume if Clinton were actually elected. He added: "We need to get it resolved and get it behind us". Russell Feingold (D-Wisc.) on Capitol Hill on March 31, 2006 in Washington, D.C. Dean said that the Comey Trump memo was like a "smoking gun".

"As President I wanted to share with Russian Federation (at an openly scheduled White House meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety", Mr Trump tweeted.
