It’s the first step in what should be a lengthy process to get a full, public impeachment of Trump from the Senate.
But even as Trump is now under intense pressure to resign or face impeachment, a full investigation of the president is a long shot.
As Trump’s lawyers have argued that Trump is fit to assume the presidency, the Trump administration is facing a crisis in its leadership.
On Monday, Vice President Mike Pence was asked whether the president should be impeached.
“The president is the commander in chief, and he is the president of the United States,” Pence said.
Pence has repeatedly said that Trump can continue to serve as president while investigating allegations of collusion with Russia, but Trump has said he would consider resigning if the investigation were to become a full-fledged crisis. “
We have an obligation as Americans to make sure that this administration stays in the White House.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee has already held a hearing to discuss whether Trump committed obstruction of justice in firing FBI Director James Comey, but he’s facing an uphill climb in getting the full House and Senate to vote to remove him.
Republicans are already under intense political pressure to vote against impeachment, as Trump’s supporters are now calling for the impeachment process to be delayed.
The most recent polls have shown that only 27 percent of Americans support impeachment.
Trump has repeatedly called on Congress to impeach him, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday called on Trump to step down.
“If the president were to step aside and the House were to vote on a resolution, I would be very happy to consider that,” Schumer said.
Schumer has also said that Republicans are “absolutely” willing to take a “clean” impeachment vote, but they have yet to say whether they would support a “no” vote on the measure.
On Tuesday, Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, said the president was prepared to step away from the presidency.
“I think the president’s ready to step back and let it run its course,” Kelly said on CNN.
“As soon as we have a resolution on it, I think that’s going to happen, and then I’ll let you know.”
