CNN learned about the study by the White house counsel of the impeachment
The White house counsel began to study the procedure of impeachment of the President of the United States, reports CNN. As noted, officials consider this outcome unlikely, but in any case, the lawyers decided to explore this option.
According to the channel, last week the lawyers of the administration, in consultation with experts familiar with the procedure of impeachment of the President from office, started to collect information about the mechanism of implementation of such procedures.
At the same time, the White house spokesman denied the fact that lawyers study the impeachment proceedings.
The impeachment of President Donald trump had earlier called some representatives of the Democratic party in Congress. The reason for this was the media publications stating that the President allegedly asked the FBI Director James Komi, subsequently fired by trump, to terminate the investigation against the former White house adviser on national security Michael Flynn.
“(Trump) fired FBI Director, who led the investigation against the President because of his ties with Russia, which intervened in the presidential elections”, — said the member of the house of representatives al green, who called to remove trump from office.
The President has sent in the resignation of Komi on 10 may, on the recommendation of the Minister of justice, attorney General Jeff and Roman sessions. As was stated in a letter to ex-FBI Director, he “is not able to effectively lead” the Department.
May 19, White house spokesman Sean Spicer said that Komi had “undue pressure” on the President to lead diplomatic dialogue with Russia on issues such as Syria, Ukraine and Islamic terrorism. He called the investigation “the actions of Russia”, conducted by the FBI, politicized.
Moscow has repeatedly accused of meddling in presidential elections. Such statements, in particular, contained in the published in January, declassified part of the report, which was prepared by the CIA, FBI and NSA. It said that Russian leader Vladimir Putin personally instructed to arrange a campaign to discredit the democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and win trump. Russia denies all these charges.
