TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Pressure is mounting on Trump in the wake of his former attorney Michael Cohen’s plea deal and a guilty verdict for his former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Congressman Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California, said on Friday that the now-shuttered Russia investigation conducted by the House Intelligence Committee was a "sham" and needed to be reopened.
Asked whether he believed Cohen lied to his committee last year when the president's former longtime attorney testified on allegations of Russian collusion during a six-hour session, Swalwell said only that Cohen had appeared to not have been "forthcoming."
"[But] the only way to really test that is if he comes back [and testifies]," Swalwell added.
Swalwell's remarks come days after the Senate Intelligence Committee stated that it wanted Cohen to reappear before the committee to testify.
Political observers say the current political trend shows that after the "countdown" for impeachment began matters are spiraling out of Trump's control, forcing him to either face the impeachment or resign.
In his first public acknowledge of a possible impeachment, Trump claimed he was doing a great job, so he would not be impeached.
Why would Congress impeach "somebody who has done a great job,” Trump told Fox News on Thursday commenting about his impeachment.
“If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very,” he warned the people of the US.
Trump claimed that if he were to be impeached, the US economy would crash and the stock market would plunge to "numbers that you wouldn't believe, in reverse."
