Ever since the Presidential elections, the US has been under the biggest scrutiny of all times and has indeed been right up there among the Watergate’ and Kennedy’ issues. It is constantly on the news and we are getting bombarded with information from all the angles about every single activity linked with the US President Donald Trump. President Trump has been on the hot seat ever since being elected as the President.
One of the major incidents under heavy scrutiny is the Russia Probe and the White House advisor under the magnifying glass. There have been so many links and possible coordination tie-ups with the Trump campaign and Russia.
The FBI Incident
As per reports, President Trump claims to have been under great pressure’ because of the Russian investigation and was actually said to have described FBI Director James B. Comey ‘as crazy, a real nut job’. The FBI went straight into the White House with the Russia probe investigation and there have been revelations about the Russian interference with the US election. There are further allegations that President Donald Trump actually did attempt to obstruct justice.
The investigation unfolds
Special Counsel Robert Mueller, investigating the alleged Russian interference in the election and the tie-up with the Trump campaign is now – “Focusing on crimes that occurred in the White House”. All this was instigated by one move of President Trump to fire FBI Director James Comey on the 9th of May. There is a latest tweet by Mr. Abramson, posted on Twitter that reads – “The White House is now a crime scene.”
Mr. Comey believes that he was fired due to the fact that Mr. Trump wanted the Russian probe to be taken out of the equation, to be left at its own peril. Mr. Trump also wanted statements being issued that there was no evidence whatsoever of coordination between Russia and his campaign. There were several legal experts who said that Mr. Comey’s testimony could indeed bolster obstruction of the justice allegations against the President. It is constantly on the news and we are getting bombarded with information from all the angles
Could this be the basis of impeachment?
Well, if an obstruction of justice is reached at then that could actually start to form the basis for President Trump’s impeachment. That being said, it would be an extremely steep climb that would require approval by the US House of Republicans, that is controlled by the President’s Republicans.
