Democratic candidate asks to start impeachment process against Trump

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said he could "foresee" impeachment proceedings "possibly coming" against President Trump, given the information presented in special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

The chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, on Friday asked for all evidence obtained by Mueller's investigators, including summaries of witness interviews and classified intelligence - and indicated he meant to air it to the public, reports the New York Times reported.

However, a majority of respondents - 47 percent - said Trump should resign, while 37 percent said he should not resign and 17 percent of respondents said they were unsure.

Though the strategy paid off in that respect, the final result was a report that painted a highly unflattering picture of Trump and the chaotic White House he runs. "We believe that the first article - Article 1, the legislative branch - has the responsibility of oversight of our democracy, and we will exercise that".

Other Democratic candidates, including US Senator Cory Booker, said that it was too soon to initiate impeachment proceedings.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat, issued a subpoena to the Justice Department to hand over the full Russian Federation report, saying he can not accept the redacted version that "leaves most of Congress in the dark".

However, some members of the blue force said Friday that the behavior of the president described in the public version of Mueller's report makes it necessary to have a discussion about it. It was the most critical statement yet from a Republican senator on what Trump on Friday called "the Crazy Mueller Report".

Romney also said Friday he was "appalled" that, according to special counsel Robert Mueller's findings, Americans working on Trump's 2016 presidential campaign welcomed election help from Russian Federation.

Democratic leaders are walking a delicate line on what to do with Mueller's findings.

And Pelosi, in an interview last week, before the report's release, reiterated her "high bar" for impeachment. "Well it depends on what we see in the report".
