Today at 8:00, former FBI Director James Comey is testifying about his relationship with Trump and the events leading up to him being fired. Vox reported here about whether or not Trump could be impeached, from a legal standing. The ethics of Trump and his administration's interactions are the main basis of the ongoing investigation, the timeline of which can be found here, and are the main contender of legal revision. Hopefully, Trump and the respective offenders will be held accountable for their actions.
At this point, the events that have occurred all point to one question in the midst of speculation and allegations: has Trump and his administration broken the law? The important facts are as follows.
- Trump repeatedly told James Comey that he needed loyalty.
- Trump was told more than once that he was not individually under investigation.
- Trump has fired three people who were interested in prosecuting him and his administration (Sally Yates, Preet Bharara, and James Comey).
- Eight people related to Trump are suspected of contact with Russian officials.
At this point, nothing is certain. A large factor of the course of the investigation is the information revealed in Comey's testimony.
