Congressman calls for Trump to be impeached

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) called for President Trump to be impeached on the House floor Wednesday morning.

Though it's unlikely a Republican Congress impeaches president Trump, if things continue to progress at the current pace - if more facts do surface that further indicate trump has indeed obstructed justice - there's no question that the allure of America's third impeachment could continue well into next year's midterm elections.

The California Democrat also reacted cautiously to the news that Trump had reportedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

"I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice", Green said, implying Trump fired Comey due the Russian investigation.

Green cited Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey and his threatening tweets following the incident as reasons to move forward with impeaching the president.

"I hope you can let this go", Trump told Comey, according to Comey's personal memos first reported by the New York Times newspaper and corroborated by the Washington Post. There is a belief in this country that no one is above the law.

Kentucky's unemployment rate increases to 5.1 percent in April
The Massachusetts economy added 3,900 jobs in April, as the statewide unemployment rate ticked up to 3.9 percent. Over the two months taken together, the majority of the new jobs were full time - 62,400 versus 35,000 part time.

NEW YORK/LONDON Bettors on both sides of the Atlantic are ramping up wagers in niche online markets over whether Donald Trump will serve out a full term as USA president in the wake of controversies surrounding the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

"I do not do this for political purposes", Green said in remarks directed to House Speaker Paul Ryan.

A House majority would be required in order to open an impeachment trial. "We can not allow this to go unchecked-the president is not above the law, it is time for the American people to weigh in". It simply means that the House of Representatives will bring charges against the President.

His dramatic speech was capped off by a warning from the lawmaker overseeing House proceedings: "Members are reminded to refrain from engaging in personalities toward the president, such as accusations that he committed an impeachable offense". Forty-one percent of voters said they opposed a potential impeachment.

Republican Senator John McCain says recent events unfolding in the Trump White House are reaching 'Watergater size and scale'. "I have my subpoena pen ready", he said.
