White House Lawyers Researching Impeachment Procedures: Report
White House lawyers have started the process of researching impeachment procedures for the likely scenario, according to officials, that President Trump would have to fight off attempts to remove him from office, CNN just reported.
White House officials believe that the President has the support of Republican allies in Congress. The alleged legal discussions are part of a bigger effort to bolster the president’s legal defense which has become more difficult given that the Justice Department appointed a special prosecutor to pursue the Russia investigation this week.
According to the report, the legal discussions are part of a broader internal effort to bolster the president’s legal defense, which has become more complicated with the Justice Department’s appointment of a special counsel to pursue the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
This is a developing story.
