Al Green is calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. There is a belief in this country that no one is above the law.

The White House said the President did not ask the FBI to end the investigation against Mr. Flynn.

Responding to a question, Amash said Wednesday that could be grounds, "if the allegations are true". This is where I stand, I will not be moved.

Defending Trump's actions, officials played down the importance and secrecy of the information, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement, and Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

At the same time he noted that impeachment does not mean the president will be found guilty.

However, the House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said that he has full confidence in Trump.

Trump, during an Oval Office meeting with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, had allegedly disclosed the secret intelligence about an Islamic State terrorist plot, The Washington Post reported Monday. But for many Republican lawmakers, navigating the halls of the U.S. Capitol has turned into an exercise in deploying deliberately cautious language - while also sounding increasingly frustrated with the Trump administration.

"That is our job, to be sober, to be passionate and to follow the facts wherever they may lead", he said. "It is obvious that there are some people out there that want to hurt the president".

Additionally, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said he would not comment on The New York Times report, but that he was "happy" with Dermer's statement of support for the US-Israel relationship. "We need to have all the facts", the spokesperson said.

Comey's memo - an apparent effort to create a paper trail of his contacts with the White House - would be evidence that president has tried to influence the investigation.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", the president told Comey, according to the Times. Staffers and aides inside the White House are also frequently quoted in stories.

"There is an FBI investigation going on right now with all things related to Russian Federation, done by the career professionals at the FBI who are going to continue to be career professionals".
