Callers threaten Texas lawmaker who seeks Trump impeachment

"Try it and we will lynch all of you", the caller said. And they were not lost on prominent Republican senator John McCain of Arizona earlier this week.

"The president must be impeached", said Democrat Al Green, raising it on the congressional floor Wednesday.

Walking away, he smiled and added: "I think sometimes it's just good to go home, get a little rest and then come back".

The burglars caught in the Watergate building were arrested in June, 1972.

The Russians didn't cost Hillary Clinton the election. The longer he stays in office, the more damage he will do.

Mr Nixon continued to deny his involvement, but was accused of plotting to use the Central Intelligence Agency to stop an FBI investigation into the scandal. "And there is no collusion between, certainly, myself and my campaign - but I can always speak for myself - and the Russians".

Pelosi, who led her party to control of the House from 2007 to 2011, had heard the impeachment drumbeat before.

So why did the president ask his vice president and attorney general to leave the room?

On July 5, 2016, Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey publicly stated that Clinton had been "extremely careless" in using a private email server to handle classified information, but he insisted that she had not meant to endanger national security (which is not an element of the relevant criminal statute). The information comes from a memo allegedly authored by Comey in which he details a private, Oval Office conversation with the president. "He's not made the pivot between being a candidate and being the President", Coffman said. What they don't provide is context.

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" We may never know what the results of that investigation might be.

British betting firm Ladbrokes (LCL.L) cut the price of a Trump impeachment to odds-on at 4-5 from 11-10, equivalent to about 56 percent probability that Trump will be removed from office. So-and he's not going to give them any problem, because he doesn't want to have a fight with them.

Some experts are comparing Trump to president Richard Nixon but the cases are not the same. Ultimately, he was compelled to turn them over to Congress. Obstruction of justice, or even the attempt to obstruct, epitomizes that sort of offense, entailing as it does an attack on a system whose integrity the president has sworn to uphold.

Nixon was not impeached - he resigned because it was 100% clear and evident he had broken the law.

For much of a frenzied day, Democrats and Republicans were asked not just if there needed to be further investigations of the president, but if impeachment, a power Congress has used against just three of its 45 presidents, was on their minds. Until then we're all just going to have to make sure we're strapped in tight, because if the last four months are any indication, we're in for a hell of a ride.

While there are interesting parallels, there are clearly differences.

Misprision of a felony occurs when: (1) a third party commits an alleged felony; and (2) the defendant has full knowledge of the crime; (3) he or she fails to notify authorities; and, most importantly, (4) helps hide the crime.

And, the aide said, starting an impeachment drumbeat now undercuts the arguments for getting full, fair investigations from an independent counsel and a 9/11-style commission.

But if there is a crucial lesson from Watergate, it is this: follow the evidence.

It was unclear how the Justice Department's decision to appoint Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee allegations of Russian meddling in the election would impact such talk.

One lawmaker from a ruby-red conservative district, Adam Kinzinger, told CNN: "This has raised real red flags in the level of seriousness". He is respected, indeed revered, in Washington.

"If you are talking about impeachment, you are talking about 'What are the facts?' " she said.
