Donald Trump impeachment: What could Trump be charged with?

At the time Rosenstein appointed a special counsel, only five Senate Republicans had publicly said they were open to the idea of a more independent investigation than what Congress and the FBI were undertaking.

In 1974, Republican President Richard M. Nixon was not impeached, but resigned before what appeared an inescapable impeachment in a Congress dominated by his own Republican Party. It would have been normal for a Russian foreign minister to meet the US President.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel shows the investigation into Russian meddling in last year's USA election "will continue". Yet US allies and some members of Congress expressed concern bordering on alarm.

Mr Putin told a news conference that he would be willing to turn over notes of Mr Trump's meeting with the Russian diplomats if the White House agreed. He dismissed outrage over Trump's disclosures as U.S. politicians whipping up "anti-Russian sentiment".

On Tuesday, Chaffetz said he had his "subpoena pen ready" if legal action is necessary to force the release of Comey's memos. Impeachment. And all of them point to a certain level of potential corruption, or even treason, greatly hindering what was supposed to be a time of tremendous change under the Republican Party, whose agenda has been derailed day after day by a president and White House staff that can not seem to corral their commander-in-chief or keep him off Twitter. "We need to get those notes, if they exist, that Director Comey took of this conversation", Schiff told ABC on Wednesday. Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein announced Wednesday that he was appointing a special counsel - Robert S. Mueller III, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2001 to 2013 - to investigate Russian meddling in the presidential election. Comey wrote other memos, although this source didn't elaborate on that point.

The Senate Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee also want Comey to testify. "You already knew the media was out to get us". Yates was sacked soon after because, the White House said, she refused to defend the president's travel ban in court. "And why did Comey wait three months before he issued or reported this memo?"

The New York Times reports that Comey created memos regarding his interactions with the president, documenting what he perceived as improper efforts to influence an ongoing investigation. And they deny the president making the request of Comey about Flynn during a meeting in February. While the White House initially cited a Justice Department recommendation and Comey's very public handling of the Clinton email investigation as reasons, those explanations quickly shifted.

The extraordinary confirmation of the report triggered a new round of moderation from the White House.

Trump's love for Russia Rumours over Trump's ties with Russians go back to his election campaign days.

"We invite you to testify at a public hearing of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary regarding the circumstances of your termination as director of the FBI and your interactions with Trump and Obama administration officials regarding the FBI's Russian Federation investigation and Clinton email investigation", they wrote. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said. And even if it did, they said, Comey would come out for the better.

Michael T Flynn, who had campaigned for Trump in these elections, was under investigation for his financial ties with Russian Federation and Turkey.

It was the premise of the story that was false, he argued, because the President had a right to share what he wanted to, and his disclosures were "appropriate to the conversation".

Democrat El Green has demanded impeachment of Trump. He used that phrase nine times in his briefing to reporters.

The highly classified information about an Islamic State plot was collected by Israel, a crucial source of intelligence and close partner in the fight against some of the America's fiercest threats in the Middle East.

Trump's decision to fire Comey took Washington by surprise and sparked a series of political headaches for the White House.
