Gergen: 'We're in impeachment territory now'

One of Republican Gov. Charlie Baker's Democratic challengers is calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

If true, it could mean devastating consequences for the president, said Gergen, who served under Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both of whom faced the impeachment process.

It's understandable that Congressman Green has nothing better to do than waste time grandstanding with accusations about tweets since the American people have rejected his parties' failed policies.

Other possible Democratic candidates include Newton Mayor Setti Warren and former state Sen.

The newspaper cited current and former United States officials said Mr Trump had divulged information provided by an ally through an intelligence-sharing arrangement, which was considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the American government.

Green says his decision comes just days after Mr. Trump fired former FBI director James Comey, who was overseeing the FBI's investigation to determine if the president's election campaign had any Russian influence, NBC affliate KPRC-TV reports.

"It is destructive to America to proceed with an impeachment at this stage of the presidency", Kucinich said. "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".

Another British betting firm Ladbrokes cut the price of a Trump impeachment to odds-on at 4-5 from 11-10, equivalent to about 56 percent probability that Trump will be removed from office. "But everybody merits a fair trail", he was quoted as saying.

When discussing Donald Trump and the Russian Federation investigation the "I" word is now in play.

"That is our job, to be sober, to be passionate and to follow the facts wherever they may lead", he said. We have an obligation to carry out our oversight, regardless of which party is in the White House.

Press officers walked through the pack in silence as journalists asked for more information, while televisions in the press area picked up on the story, just days after the furore over the sacking of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. "The president is not above the law", he added.

Ryan supported the White House. "And the acting director just said the other day that no one has tried to impede that investigation", he told reporters at a news conference.
