Almost 1.1 Million People Call For Impeach Investigation of the President

News broke Tuesday that Trump in February asked then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn - a request critics have called obstruction of justice.

She believes this is another example of the incredible ignorance the President is showing about how to run the country - and further proof of his chronic lack of experience.

A small but growing number of U.S. President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans called on Wednesday for an independent probe of possible collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, and one even mentioned impeachment, spurred by a memo from the fired FBI chief that Trump tried to impede the agency's investigation. The President was already under investigation about ties between his campaign and Moscow during the run-up to the election but now there are issues surrounding classified information.

The Republican leaders of the House have not allowed the legislation to move forward, forcing Democrats to use a parliamentary procedure known as a "discharge petition" aimed at forcing a vote on legislation that would create the commission.

As US President, Trump has the power to declassify any information and so there's no question over whether he has broken American law.

"But I think we're in impeachment territory now for the first time".

As the controversy swirled in Washington, Trump had defiant words during a speech to U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduates in CT, complaining about media coverage and saying no politician in history "has been treated worse or more unfairly".

"Impeachment does not mean that the President will be found guilty", he said. No longer will the focus of the Special Counsel be Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, but it will instead be whether the President has obstructed justice.
