WASHINGTON: To those who think President Donald Trump should be driven from office, history would say: Good luck with that.More broadly, the FBI, several congressional committees and now a special counsel appointed Wednesday by the Justice Department are pressing ahead with investigations into possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian officials.That's if the president was trying "corruptly" to influence the Flynn probe.Congressional leaders are seeking a copy of the memo and other records that might exist on Trump's interactions with Comey, and want the ex-FBI chief to testify at hearings.THE I-WORDTwo presidents have been impeached, Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 . So no president has been driven from office by an impeachment.The House approved 11 articles of impeachment and the Senate pursued three, each time falling one vote short of a two-thirds majority.For that to stick and a vice president to finish out a president's term, it would require a two-thirds majority vote in both houses of Congress.
