Cracks in Republican dam as frustration with Trump mountsFissures are emerging among Republican lawmakers over US President Donald Trump, who is threatened with impeachment, as his troop withdrawal from Syria and abortive push to host the G7 at his own resort cause increasing dismay. Trump's self-inflicted wounds are making it harder for some Republicans to remain quiet or unwaveringly loyal during what could be an inflection point in his presidency. Democrats are readying articles of impeachment, the catalyst being Trump's July phone call to his Ukrainian counterpart in which he urged the European ally to investigate his political rivals.
