President Trump claims he is worst-treated politician in history

President Trump claims he is worst-treated politician in history

We need to see the Comey memo detailing Trump's request to shut down the investigation into his disgraced national security adviser. In January, only days after the inauguration, then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates had informed Trump's White House counsel that Flynn had been interviewed by the FBI as part of an active investigation. "It's also important that this does not impact the ongoing investigation into Russian Federation".

Also Tuesday, in an extraordinary turn of events, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions with the diplomats.

The White House has played down the importance and secrecy of the information Mr Trump gave to the Russians, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement.

Mr Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

Republicans and Democrats alike were eager to hear from Comey, who has increasingly emerged as a central figure in the unfolding drama.

"We do not have that problem", said a Senate intelligence committee source. But the problem is that Trump apparently was drawing from some rather specific Israeli intel that had been shared with the United States, and that what he said in his meeting might well be traceable back to the sources and methods used to gain the more detailed information. "We put out a statement last night". But Louisiana's lone Democrat in Congress, U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans, disagreed and said an independent commission needs to be called in.

Comey recounted the incident in a memo, read to the Times by an associate, which quotes Trump as saying: "He is a good guy". If it were me, I'd say one appearance, period. I guess that's why we won.

In defiant mood, the President added "adversity makes you stronger". Don't give in, don't back down. "And the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face".




While the GOP establishment, Democrats, and media have the knives out for President Donald Trump after his firing of ex-FBI Director James Comey-and the subsequent leaks from Comey associates portraying alleged conversations between the two-legal experts are skeptical that there is any case to be made for an "obstruction of justice." . The investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn reportedly is tied to the FBI's ongoing probe of Russian influence during the 2016 election.

Banks says a president using his office to disrupt an FBI investigation would be an "alarming" misuse of power, and could eventually be grounds for a special prosecutor.

Jason Chaffetz, the House Oversight Committee has officially invited James Comey to testify next Wednesday.

But Colorado U.S. Sen. Having finally obtained control of the House, Senate and the White House, Republicans have ambitious goals for rewriting the nation's health care law and tax code.

While the Comey memo has been shared with certain Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, according to reports, the full contents of the memo have not been made public, though some portions have been read to national reporters.

But criminal charges of interfering with an investigation are hard in ordinary circumstances, several former federal prosecutors cautioned Wednesday, a day after word of the existence of the memo broke.

The White House vigorously denied it all. An ABC News/Washington Post poll late last month found that despite Trump's low approval ratings relative to other presidents early in their administrations, 96 per cent of those who voted for him last November stand by their support. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, sent a letter Wednesday asking Comey to testify before the committee in both open and closed sessions. And even if it did, they said, Comey would come out for the better. Comey wrote after the meeting that Trump said, "I hope you can let this go".
