"He is a good guy". Instead, on March 20, he took the unusual step of publicly confirming it.

"President Trump is not above the law", said Green in a statement.

President Trump has fed the theory that the media is out to get him, saying "no politician in history" has been treated more unfairly. They're modest. To my colleagues on other side: America needs you.

Trump was in a groove at the commencement as he deftly accepted diplomas without even looking back at the aide slipping them into his hand.

He said an independent panel is needed to investigate Russia's meddling in the election and whether Trump campaign officials had any contacts with Moscow. "You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight".

First, members in the House of Representatives would have to draft articles of impeachment, which essentially outline the charges being brought against the president. But they are starting to talk subpoenas and making Watergate comparisons, and people who aren't congressional Democrats are beginning to talk impeaching Trump - an idea the public is apparently warming up to.

While many Democrats are shying away from impeachment talk just yet, there are several calling for a Special Prosecutor to investigate Trump administration ties to Russian Federation, such as Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). John McCain (R-Ariz.). Trump is likely to be protected by his Republican allies.

"That's not something that we should be rushing into or rushing to suggest", Schiff said.

However, when it reached the Senate in 1999, it failed to get close to the two-thirds backing it needed in order to pass.

Senior Democrats say it is too early to call for impeachment, and that the facts of the case must first be established. "It's wasted breath - I don't think the American population realizes how hard it is to successfully impeach a president".

"It looks like he was trying to impede the investigation", said Gergen. I want the American people to know that we're busy, hard at work fixing their problems. "I do (have confidence in Trump)", he told reporters at a news conference. "We need the facts".

The White House has played down the importance and secrecy of the information Trump gave to the Russians, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement.

The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment. "From my standpoint I think we have to gather the evidence and see if what is alleged is true and then we go from there".

"I'm a big believer in Democracy and playing by the rules, but this can't be a political process", Weaver said. "That could be considered a crime, and as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he had an obligation to make that known".

Flynn was forced from his position in February after it was revealed that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his contact with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

In a freaky twist on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions.

Ryan supported the White House.

Comey documented several interactions between him and Trump in memos. "The president must be impeached". The case is then referred to the senate for trial and run like a criminal case.

CBS News confirmed that at least some of the information that Trump shared with Russian Federation came from the Israelis. "Otherwise, Donald Trump is to a great extent off the hook, maybe for a very long time".
