As investigations heat up into possible ties between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia, House Democratic leaders are rejecting talk of impeaching the president, The Hill reported.

"We have to find out what the facts are," said Rep. Adam Schiff of California. Schiff is the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which is conducting one of the Russia probes.

"The hearings this week are going to be very important to understand what role the president played in the effort to derail any part of the Russia investigation, as has been alleged."

Rep. Linda Sánchez, D-Calif. who chairs the House Democratic Caucus, added: "A majority of the Caucus is of the belief that we ought to allow the investigation to continue to its logical conclusion before making any determination."

Their comments come as James Comey, who was fired by Trump as FBI director, gets set to testify on Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Meanwhile Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, is planning to draft articles of impeachment against Trump, NBC News reported.

"The facts are simple and indisputable," Green said. "The president fired the FBI director because the director was investigating the president's campaign connections to Russian interference in the presidential election.

"This will remain obstruction of justice regardless of the findings of any investigation."

But Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., a member of the House Intelligence Committee, called Green's impeachment effort "premature."
