Third, even if we went out of our way to be charitable, and assumed that Trump's rhetorical appeal was meaningless, the president also fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

As the Monica Lewinsky controversy swirled around former President Bill Clinton, a Senate panel held a hearing on whether the president could be indicted.

Mitch McConnell, Republican leader of the Senate, said simply, "It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House". "Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media", he said. The FBI is investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

"The notion that we should have a government of the people, by the people, for the people".

"I'm convinced that the president did nothing that he thought was outside the best interest of the country", said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.

Earlier this week, Green released a statement claiming the president "had committed an impeachable act and must be charged". Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. He also questioned why Comey didn't take action at the time if the allegations are true.

Last week, Mr Trump abruptly dismissed FBI Director James Comey, and then contradicted his press team and Vice President Mike Pence when explaining the reasoning behind the firing.

"They are destabilizing the internal political situation in the United States under anti-Russian slogans", Putin said commenting on the allegations that classified information was supposedly handed over by Trump to Lavrov.

The internal political struggle in the USA, including anti-Russian rhetoric as one of its manifestations, can harm the United States itself, Putin said.

Impeachment requires the support of a majority of members of the House of Representatives.

The House leadership's acknowledgment that deeper digging was necessary - though how much and how aggressively remains to be seen - comes after months of turning a blind eye to other questions of inappropriate behavior raised about the Trump administration at the outset of his presidency. Its goals in Syria, for one example, are counter to those of the United States. This is because he has his own transcript of their meeting, of course, which he's happy to provide to America.

The requests by USA intelligence officials cast doubt on the assertion by the president's aides that the sharing was appropriate.

Andrew Johnson was sacked in February 1868. One week later, the House adopted eleven articles of impeachment against the President.
