Texas congressman calls for impeachment of President Trump

The first was sent to former FBI Director James Comey seeking his appearance before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in both open and closed sessions.

It also said it had asked Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to send any notes or other memos prepared by Comey about communications he may have had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to the investigation into Russian Federation and the election.

Israel was the source of the classified intelligence President Donald Trump allegedly disclosed to Russian senior officials during a meeting at the White House last week, according to a new report by The New York Times.

Al Green is calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. "The president is not above the law", Green said in his address to Congress.

"If the allegations are true, yes", the Michigan Republican said when asked if the allegations are grounds for impeachment.

Mr. Flynn resigned as NSA after it emerged that he gave the Vice-President an inaccurate account of a conversation he had with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. The conversation recorded in the memo took place on February 14, the day after the President asked Mr. Flynn to resign.

Soon thereafter another Republican lawmaker was seen supporting the impeachment move. Speaker Paul Ryan supported the demand through a spokesperson.

"We need the facts", Ryan told reporters at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. "There are a lot of unanswered questions", Ryan said. "That means before rushing to judgment we get all the pertinent information", Ryan said.

Asked what he thinks of Trump presidency, Putin said it's up to the American people to judge but his performance can only be rated "only when he's allowed to work at full capacity", implying that someone is hampering Trump's efforts. A section of opinion makers argues that the President's behaviour constitutes obstruction of justice and he must be impeached.

In a tweet Tuesday, Trump said he had an "absolute right" to share the information, and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said he is not concerned that information sharing among allies would stop.

Speaking at a joint news conference with the visiting Italian prime minister on Wednesday, Putin said he had "no other explanation" as to why Trump came under attack other than "political schizophrenia".
