FOR THE GOOD OF OUR COUNTRY PATHOLOGICAL LIAR PRESIDENT TRUMP NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED!! ………Papa Mike
Democratic and independent members of Congress were alarmed after allegations surfaced that President Donald Trump pressed former FBI Director James Comey to abandon an investigation of Michael Flynn’s contact with Russian officials.
Lawmakers suggested on Tuesday that Trump had obstructed justice, an impeachable offense, for encouraging Comey to scrap an investigation targeting Flynn, the former national security adviser who lied about his interactions with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.
The revelations prompted Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) to say that it may soon be time to impeach Trump for interfering with the FBI’s probe of the president’s associates. ”Obstruction of justice is such a serious offense,” King said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. He had agreed with Blitzer when asked if “we’re getting closer and closer to the possibility of yet another impeachment process.”
Trump had said to Comey that “I hope you can let this go” the day after Flynn resigned in February, according to a memo the former FBI director reportedly wrote. The New York Times first reported about the memo Tuesday. White House officials denied that Trump meddled with Comey’s investigation.
“At best, President Trump has committed a grave abuse of executive power,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). “At worst, he has obstructed justice.”
Pelosi added that Democrats would introduce legislation to create an independent counsel “to get the facts free of President Trump’s meddling.”
