The first Republican congressman proposed impeaching the President

Observers say that US President Donald Trump is facing the most serious crisis since taking office after the content of former FBI Director James Comey’s memo was spread, `accusing` the President.

In an interview with The Hill, Republican congressman Justin Amash said that, if this news is true, impeachment is understandable.

In an interview with CNN, Republican congressman Carlos Curbelo compared Mr. Trump’s pressure on Mr. Comey to stop the investigation to the `legal obstruction` that led to former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton being impeached.

Both of these congressmen are critics of Mr. Trump and did not vote for him in last year’s presidential election.

According to the US Constitution, the impeachment process will begin in the House of Representatives after lawmakers introduce a resolution of impeachment with positive provisions.

Andrew McCarthy, a former prosecutor, said it was too early to say whether Mr. Trump would be impeached or not because a prosecutor would not just make a decision based on rumors about a memo.

Bookmakers bet on Mr. Trump being impeached

Along with the recent chaos in US politics, bookmakers have begun to bet on the possibility of President Donald Trump being impeached.

Several online betting sites, including PredictIt, have recorded a record number of bets in the past 2 days related to the theory that Mr. Trump could be impeached.

According to Reuters, within 24 hours of information about Mr. Comey’s memo being spread, the number of bets `President Trump will be impeached in 2017` soared by more than 100,000 times.

British betting company Betfair said that after news of Mr. Trump asking Mr. Comey to close the Russia investigation, some bettors bet more than 5,000 pounds (nearly 6,500 USD) that Mr. Trump would soon be voted out of office.

Meanwhile, recently released survey results from Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling showed that up to 48% of respondents said they support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
