Rep. Al Green became the first lawmaker to officially call for Congress to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday, telling the House of Representatives he "will not be moved". The House Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing Thursday on how an overhaul would affect economic growth and job creation.

Less than a week after Comey's firing, the explosive news cycle continued Monday night when the Washington Post first broke that Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during their meeting at the White House last week. The White House also strongly denied the claims in the Times.

"The story that came out tonight as reported is false", HR McMaster, The US's National Security Adviser, told reporters.

"We're going to walk and chew gum at the same time".

Israeli intelligence agents were concerned that information given to Russian Federation could be passed on to Iran, it reported. "It was very bad of him".

Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson speaks with Melvin Small, distinguished professor of history emeritus at Wayne State University and author of "The Presidency of Richard Nixon" about parallels and differences between the Nixon and Trump administrations.

If Vladimir Putin sticks to his word and releases his copy of the transcript from the meeting, pressure could mount that forces the Trump administration to release their copy of the same meeting.

A Kremlin aide, Yuri Ushakov, later told reporters that Moscow had a written record of the conversation, not an audio recording. The Flynn investigation was part of a broader probe into Russian interference in last year's presidential election.

Trump on Russia Allegations: 'There is No Collusion'
A spokesman for Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said the details on the timing are still being worked out. -Former Rep. Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, in his press briefing, denied that President threatened the former FBI Director.

"Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media", he said. "And if it comes in an email, I wouldn't click on the attachment".

"No, and this is the thing that continues to astonish me", Schiff told MSNBC, replying to a question whether the Intelligence Committee knew of Comey's memos. Mr. Speaker, we are talking about a president who fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director who was investigating the president for his connections to Russian involvement in the president's election. Send it our way.

A US official who confirmed the disclosure to The Associated Press said the revelation potentially put the source at risk.

A report by News Max is stating that Representative Justin Amash, republican from MI, says Trump should be impeached if it is discovered that he tampered with the FBI investigation into Michael Flynn by asking James Comey to stop the investigation.

In Washington, Republican and Democratic lawmakers said they wanted to see the Comey memo.

Democrats demanded an independent commission to dig into his sacking of Mr Comey, but Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan cautioned against "rushing to judgment". According to Putin, this latest accusation against Trump is "political schizophrenia".

"It's hard to imagine what else these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next", said Putin, referring to unnamed USA politicians.
