Online speculators increasing bets on early end to Trump presidency


Trump has landed in a tight corner after James Comey's dramatic dismissal as Comey was leading investigations into Trump-Russia probe and Russia's alleged involvement in the US elections held in November 2016.

President Andrew Johnson was impeached and almost removed from office after his policies for reconstruction of the South angered radical Republicans in Congress who felt his approach was too lenient on the former Confederate states. "Impeachment does not mean the president will be found guilty".

"The only way Obama has gotten away with all this authoritarian executive order stuff is the Republican Party hasn't stopped him". It's time to take drastic, yet necessary action'.

Rush reiterated that prediction less than a week before the election. The House passed all 11 articles of impeachment, which, among other things, accused Johnson of illegally removing Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, an opponent of president's policies, from office.

While Curbelo said he wasn't necessarily accusing anyone of anything, he later added, "Obstruction of justice, in the case of Nixon, in the case of Clinton in the late 90s, has been considered an impeachable offense". The researchers claimed Trump could be charged with fraud or racketeering, both of which are felonies.

King said those who are talking about impeachment right now, in the absence of evidence, are talking about "nullifying an election". "This is a participatory democracy", he said.

He responded: "I think it's pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey".

Mueller was appointed Wednesday by Rosenstein, who had faced criticism as the author of a memo that preceded Comey's firing. Rosenstein has done the right thing", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Thursday on the Senate floor.


After less than six months in office, amid his other political conflicts, Trump has put himself in what many are considering his biggest controversy yet.

"We are talking about a president who fired an Federal Bureau of Investigation director who was investigating the president for his connections to Russian involvement in the president's election".

Green maintained that the outcome of any probe into Trump's alleged ties to Russian Federation was irrelevant to the issue of impeachment. Comey is said to have written a memo about the meeting during which Trump allegedly made the request.

"I am not there, I just want to get the information", Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., told reporters when asked about the prospects of impeachment.
