Harriet Alexander says Donald Trump is incredibly ignorant

Republicans are totally exasperated with Donald Trump's behaviour and the whispers of impeachment are getting louder, according to a prominent journalist. 

The US House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has asked the FBI to hand over all communcations between Trump and former FBI director James Comey, after reports claimed Trump asked Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Foreign correspondent for The Telegraph Harriet Alexander told Sam Delaney that this is a textbook obstruction of justice and has created a huge scandal in the US. 

She believes this is another example of the incredible ignorance the President is showing about how to run the country - and further proof of his chronic lack of experience.

If the correspondence is published, she said, it will be incredibly damaging for Trump and people are beginning to use the word impeachment.
