48 percent of Americans support Trump's impeachment

More and more Americans are wanting and expecting a Trump impeachment before 2017 ends

They agree there is the possibility of what they call a simple tax cut, but caution that even that is imperiled by a White House in damage-control mode. "I do not do this for political purposes, Mister Speaker".

It would take the House majority to impeach Trump and that requires Republican support; so far, no GOP members of Congress have called for impeachment. The definition is vague and has always been debated.

There is a movement, but to push things forward in a direction that does not merely send the USA back to a tepid status quo, but brings the nation into a new and evolved democracy, the people must be involved. Certain members of the House of Representatives would act as the prosecutors, and a Supreme Court justice would act as judge. The Senate needs a two-thirds majority, or 67 out of 100 votes, to find an official guilty and remove that person from office.

Democratic leadership sources on Capitol Hill also say they are urging restraint within the caucus because they need Republican buy-in for a special prosecutor or independent commission.

"The responsibility of the President under the Constitution is the impeachment", said Rep.

For now, congressional Republicans are confident with congressional committees handling the investigation.

A small but growing number of Republican U.S. lawmakers called on Wednesday for an independent probe of possible collusion between President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, spurred by a memo from the fired FBI chief that Trump had sought to impede the agency's investigation.

Congress also can stop short of impeachment and call for a lesser form of censure or sanction. No longer will Democrats bicker over policy, but simply remain united in their opposition to the president.




So far, only a handful of Democratic lawmakers have outright called for impeachment.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said last month that she will "fight every day until he is impeached." Sen.

"Nobody should rush to embrace the most extraordinary remedy", Schiff said, because it could be perceived as "a way to nullify the election by other means". Neither was convicted in the Senate.

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. As you know, he resigned, but obstruction of justice is a very, very serious matter and we're going to have to wait and see what the - what the terms were. "And that includes the President of the United States of America", he said. "This is about the soul of our democracy". No Republicans have publicly voiced support for impeaching Trump. Only 42 percent of Americans approve of Trump, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday.

Look at it this way: Trump had not quite a clean slate, but at least something of a new beginning on the story of Russia's interference with the 2016 election after he ordered air strikes on Russian client state Syria on April 6.

Schiff said impeachment is "not something to be lightly entertained".

Gergen appeared on CNN Tuesday night to discuss to discuss the controversies that have overwhelmed the Trump administration in the past week. But everybody in this country gets a fair trial, including the president, " says the 37-year-old West Michigan representative. "I think we follow the evidence, we obtain the evidence, we hear the testimony and then we decide just what does this show about the president's conduct".
