Despite his "you're fired" catchphrase (seems a long time ago, doesn't it?), it seems President Donald Trump isn't too keen on being given marching orders himself and would jump before being pushed, according to a senior Democrat.

Congress member Jackie Speier has said that she believes Trump would resign before Congress is able impeach him when speaking on the Today show on Radio 4 earlier today.

Speier, who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said: "I have always thought [that Trump] was never going to fulfil his full term. I am more convinced that he will leave before any impeachment would take place."

"I do think the potential for the House to start to think in terms of impeachment is not outside the realm of possibility," she added.

"It is not something that would be happening any time soon but if the President were to act precipitously at any of these situations, pardoning his family members, taking actions to try and get rid of Mr Mueller, I think those would be tipping points and could end up in the House calling for impeachment."

The news comes as a grand jury has been convened by special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian interference in the American election.
