Washington (CNN)White House lawyers have begun researching impeachment procedures in an effort to prepare for what officials still believe is a distant possibility that President Donald Trump could have to fend off attempts to remove him from office, two people briefed on the discussions tell CNN.

White House officials believe the President has the backing of Republican allies in Congress and that impeachment is not in the cards, according to the people briefed on the legal discussions. Even Democrats have tried to calm impeachment talk out of concern it is premature.
But lawyers in the White House counsel's office have consulted experts in impeachment during the past week and have begun collecting information on how such proceedings would work, a person briefed on the matter told CNN.

Impeaching Trump will kill the Republican party. If 25 R's vote to impeach, Trump supporters will punish the party at the polls...

As of right now nothing has come forward that warrants impeachment.  All the left has are accusations, until evidence is provided some in the party will try to talk the left off the ledge, I think it's too late for them.  They are all in and on the flimsiest charges.  If they do not succeed they will have burned up their opportunity on the most trivial charges and no one will buy into their next call for impeachment.
  


"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

Why would you believe anything CNN says?

Trump hasn't done anything criminal to get impeached for

What's curious to me: How does something like this get leaked? Can't the White House do anything without being leaked to the public?

I'm not sure you can actually say what we see in the press is leaked. Unless some reporter's imaginary fantasy counts as a brain leak.

Even more people whose parents never bothered to give them names. There seems to be an epidemic of children in this country who are never given names. They are forced to go through life as "unnamed" or "undisclosed". If they are lucky they get a nickname such as "Anonymous".

The WH hasn't denied that Trump told the Russians that he fired Comey to ease pressure from the investigation (the investigation into Trumps campaign and Russia collusion)... that sounds dangerously close to obstruction of justice IMO. I sincerely hope this isn't the case.

That's true it does and we will never know what Obama meant when he said that to the Russians, but it sounds like Trump idiotically believed that firing Comey would make the investigation go away...
