Trump, he said, should restrain himself on Twitter and "give the House of Representatives and the Senate -- and the general public -- the evidence that we need to form a case either for or against him."

Representatives for the other living former U.S. presidents -- Democrats Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and Republican George W. Bush -- could not be immediately reached for comment.
