Richard Nixon resigned in order to avoid impeachment and expulsion from office in the wake of the Watergate scandal that rocked the White House.
At issue is whether Trump disclosed highly classified intelligence on Islamic State threats to civil aviation during a May 10 meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russia's ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. "I hope you can let this go".
Since Comey's firing on May 9, the calls for Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel have intensified, especially from Democratic lawmakers who believe he can longer be impartial in the Russian Federation investigation, given his role in the firing.
The hatred against President Trump far exceeds anything Nixon ever experienced.
Donald Trump gave vent to frustrations over his mounting political problems on Wednesday (May 17), declaring that no president in USA history had been treated "more unfairly". We're trying to go the extra mile - we owe the White House the chance to present us with the information, present us with the truth. "It is time for the American people to weigh in".
Serving as an early-warning sign for potential damage to the party is Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), who saw his South Florida congressional district vote for Hillary Clinton by 16 percentage points previous year - the most for any GOP lawmaker seeking reelection in 2018. John McCain, R-Ariz., weighed in as well.
He will be accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump for the eight-day, five-country itinerary, which includes stops in the symbolic homes of three Abrahamic religions. Trump has denied any collusion with the Russian government and no evidence has been publicly presented to show such collusion. Other outlets, including The Associated Press, later confirmed the report. Trump's response was "He is". "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".
Trump is then expected to reaffirm his commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation while unveiling the security bloc's memorial, in front of a piece of the Berlin Wall and segment of the World Trade Center. If his tax lawyers found ways to help him legally reduce his tax burden, kudos to them!
Trump's capacity to govern does not seem materially different from what it appeared it would be when a sufficient number of Americans voted six months ago to make him president. And if he can coax the Russians to get on board in the effort that would be fine with me.
Did he in fact collude with Russian Federation in his campaign to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton? What she deserves is an eight-by-five room in a federal penitentiary.
"He is projecting it to Donald Trump, the US Congress and the wider politial establishment there".
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.
