Rep. Al Green calls for Trump impeachment on House floor

"That in fact was the first Article of Impeachment under President Nixon", Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Cali., said on MSNBC.
SHAPIRO: That's Texas Democrat Al Green speaking on the House floor this morning. For many of these lawmakers, the potential for a conservative primary opponent is greater than any threat from a Democrat. NPR's Scott Detrow reports from the Capitol. And that's telling. It would take a unified Democratic Party and a groundswell of defecting Republicans to impeach Trump.
Even though there have been calls for Donald Trump's impeachment ever since he entered the White House, more Americans now are getting behind the Trump impeachment bandwagon. Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) became the first GOP lawmaker to broach the idea when he told The Hill that reports that Trump pressured Comey to end his investigation would merit impeachment.
"It looks like he was trying to impede the investigation", said Gergen. And that is not grounds for impeachment.
The latest chaos surrounding President Donald Trump and the Russian Federation investigations left House Republicans searching for a way to seemingly address the controversy without undercutting the man who could help their agenda in the long term. The House passed all 11 articles of impeachment, which, among other things, accused Johnson of illegally removing Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, an opponent of president's policies, from office. "I don't think we should rush to that conclusion".
British bookmaker Betfair also said that punters had bet more than 5,000 pounds ($6,470) on an early departure for Trump in the hours after it was reported Trump had asked Comey to shut down the Russian Federation investigation. But Democrats had no problems offering up their assessment - it could be obstruction of justice, if true, they said.
Green's demand comes one day after it was revealed that Trump asked Comey to drop the bureau's probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn before the President fired Comey.
JOSEPH CROWLEY: I'm not afraid of the I-word. When it came to the Senate trial, all 45 Democrats voted to acquit him on both charges; they were joined by 10 Republicans in acquitting Clinton of the perjury charge, and five in acquitting him of the obstruction of justice charge. Adam Schiff agrees with that approach. McConnell and other leaders are convinced that if they don't deliver, voters will punish them at the polls in the 2018 midterm elections.
DETROW: Then there's this political reality.
