Senate intel member says Trump closer to impeachment process

But Trump later told NBC News that he would have fired Comey "regardless" of the recommendation and mentioned the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Russian Federation. "I do not do this for political purposes.I do this because I believe in the great ideals this country stands for: liberty and justice for all".

If Trump really did ask Comey to back off the Flynn investigation, posited Hostin, who is also the grandiosely titled "Senior Legal Correspondent and Analyst" for staunchly liberal ABC News, then "that is pure and simple a federal crime". The White House denied the report, saying it was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey".

In perhaps the most famous presidential scandal in US history, the president wasn't impeached.

But when asked by an audience member when to "call a spade a spade" and call Trump out for obstruction of justice at the CAP conference on Tuesday, Warren demurred and said that she was calling for an independent investigation.

In a significant development, party operatives say they now expect Democrats will poll-test the public's views on impeachment, trying to acquire hard data about an issue that until now has not been seriously analyzed. We don't need to wait that long. Furthermore, there are not so many people who really desire it, he added.

Ross Douthat, a conservative columnist for the New York Times, wrote that while Trump may not be guilty of the "high crimes and misdemeanors" necessary for impeachment, he had shown himself incapable of governing the country. "So there are a lot of unanswered questions".

In July 1974, the committee voted to bring three articles of impeachment against the president, including obstruction of justice, to the floor of the House.

"I think we have to be a little bit cautious".

Yet a tax cut, if not a major overhaul, could still be in the cards even under the scenario Trump leaves office early.

HP rolls out patch to fix keylogging bug in certain laptops
The HP update not only removes the driver's keylogger capabilities, but also the log file where these keystrokes were saved. The keylogger is used by audio drivers to determine when the up and down volume control buttons have been pressed.

Following conflicting information from the White House following Comey's firing last week, Trump tweeted it was unreasonable to expect his press staff to always tell the truth, but 77 percent of voters say they do expect the president's press secretaries to tell the truth all the time, compared to only 14 percent who say that isn't their expectation.

First came the news that Trump fired the former director of the FBI, James Comey.

The combination of Trump firing Comey while his campaign was under FBI investigation for possible collusion with Russian Federation and the president subsequently admitting that he had done so in part because of his frustrations over the Russian Federation investigation was a key factor for Democrats in US Congress to mull removing Trump from office.

He said it "was in fact one of the offenses that was listed in the last two impeachments that have gone on" in Congress.

"We're going to have to hear from Director Comey", King said.

"I have said on previous occasions, and do now say again, the president should be impeached".

Impeachment requires the support of a majority of members of the House of Representatives. Ryan backed Chaffetz's request. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday offered to provide lawmakers with a recording of the meeting to refute the report. All of its users are registered US voters.

A Kremlin aide, Yuri Ushakov, later told reporters Moscow had a written record of the conversation, not an audio recording.
