"I'm a big believer in Democracy and playing by the rules, but this can't be a political process", Weaver said.

Tuesday's news, as well as a Monday report from The Washington Post that Trump shared classified information with Russian diplomats last week that could have compromised an intelligence sharing relationship with an ally, should be included in a select committee investigation if one were to be approved, Curbelo said.

"We're in impeachment territory now", declared David Gergen, the presidential counselor who should know a thing or two about the subject; he advised both a Republican (Richard Nixon) and Democrat (Bill Clinton), who dealt with impeachment in their respective second terms. H.R. McMaster, Trump's national security adviser, said Trump's revelations were "wholly appropriate". "To do otherwise would cause some Americans to lose respect for, and obedience to, our societal norms", he said in a statement. Appearing on Hugh Hewitt's radio show, Ryan dismissed speculation that Trump's setbacks and turmoil in the White House would hurt the GOP majority and Republicans' agenda.

"Whether he is guilty is a separate action for the U.S. Senate to decide", Green added. "If people want to call for impeachment, it needs to be publicly known that Pence is as corrupt and culpable as Trump, and that he's not a better option", said the DNC source, who says the party has up until now not done enough to highlight that. The president is not above the law.

Impeachment procedures have been initiated against USA presidents only three times in the 230 years since the American constitution was drafted, and little more than 100 days into his term of office, Donald Trump is already at risk of becoming the fourth.

"We need to decide if members of Congress, and the country as a whole, believe that the President's conduct was corrupt enough - if indeed that is what we find - that his removal is not just the nullification of the election by other means". With the collusion of some US citizens, whether they knew they were colluding or not, Putin pulled it off and that makes me irate.

· The President fired the F.B.I. In slow motion, Trump implemented the successive firing of the US attorney in NY, the acting attorney general and the FBI director - the three leaders of the three crucial counterintelligence and law enforcement investigations.

Mr Bonifaz, a Massachusetts-based attorney, is the co-founder and president of Free Speech for People, formed in 2010 to advocate for limits on campaign spending.

These acts, when combined, amount to intimidation and obstruction.

Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told other members of the Republican leadership that he thought that Trump might be taking Russian money. I have said on previous occasions, and do now say again, the President should be impeached.

Our mantra should be "I".
