Putin offers records of Trump-Russia meeting

If he and Jones are willing to break with the White House on the subject of the Russian Federation investigation and join the Democrats calling for impeachment, then it is not impossible that other Republicans will, too. Unless that changes, a special prosecutor would be unlikely as that person would only investigate a crime.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that said that Moscow could provide a recording of a controversial exchange between Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US President Donald Trump that has plunged the White House into turmoil.

At a time when relations with Russian Federation are already under intense scrutiny, Mr Putin said he was prepared to help.

The letter came after the Senate Intelligence Committee made a similar request for Comey's memos. "This is how it has been & how it will continue to be".

Legal experts took a dim view of Trump's comments, as quoted in the memo.

Michael Flynn was sacked as national security adviser in February after it emerged that he misled the vice-president about meetings with the Russian ambassador during the election campaign. When asked if he trusted Comey's word over Trump's, he replied: "I think it's pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey".

House Oversight Committee chair Jason Chaffetz, a senior Republican, said the memo and related documents "raise questions as to whether the president attempted to influence or impede the FBI's investigation". "And, ah because these people are plugging for, for keeps and that they should call the Federal Bureau of Investigation in and say that we wish for the country, don't go any further into this case", period!" "He is a good guy".

"I hope he'll accept our invitation", Warner told reporters, noting he had not yet received a response.

"He is flunking all the rules of crisis management", said a Washington lawyer involved in several White House investigations who spoke anonymously. Sources close to Comey and who are familiar with the memo said the Times account is accurate. Who at the Department of Justice, including AG Sessions, knew of the memo and possible obstruction attempt?

"We've seen this movie before".




Following Comey's abrupt dismissal, Trump contradicted his communications staff on the reason for firing him and admitted it was partially because of how Comey was handling the Russian investigation, touching off obstruction of justices allegations.

Comey had previously refused to acknowledge the parallel Trump investigation, and his disclosure enrages Democrats who already blamed Comey for costing Clinton the presidency.

The reality of the situation is that unless Trump voluntarily steps down himself, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell must agree that he must be removed from office, and the Republican majority must pursue impeachment charges.

Surrounded by multiplying questions, President Donald Trump complained Wednesday that "no politician in history" has been treated worse.

"It may work in a business context".

"Similarly the release of secrets to the Russians - if that's what it amounts to - is not OK in a political context".

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, put it in simple terms.

Moreover, said Wright and other lawyers, the president can't be sure advice he receives from White House lawyers will remain confidential.

However, it is still not clear-cut if Mr Trump could be accused of obstructing justice as the FBI investigation - at least from the information that is available in the public domain - is a counter intelligence operation, not a criminal investigation. Congress would have to pass a bill authorizing such a panel, and even then, Mr. Trump could veto it.
