Senate Intelligence Committee leaders demand Comey's notes

Senate Intelligence Committee leaders demand Comey's notes

The letter was signed by both Republicans and Democrats, Charles Grassley, Dianne Feinstein, Lindsey Graham and Sheldon Whitehouse.

Putin, who has a long record of seizing on foreign crises to make Russia's voice heard, announced during a news conference in Sochi, Russia, that he has a "record" of the USA president's meeting at the White House with two senior Russian officials and was ready to give it to Congress - so long as Trump does not object.

Asked what he would advise President Trump to do now, McCain said, "Get it all out". The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that a European intelligence official warned that his country may stop sharing information with the U.S.as a result of Trump's disclosure.

During an event for Turner Broadcasting in New York City Tuesday night, Jake Tapper and Samantha Bee discussed Trump's latest issues.

This, however, requires the support of a majority of members of the House of Representatives. Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has requested all records of Comey's interactions with the president. Trump reportedly asked Comey, who was overseeing the investigation into Flynn, to "let it go", raising questions about why Trump later suddenly fired Comey as the investigation continued.

Putin told a news conference that he would be willing to turn over notes of Trump's meeting with the Russian diplomats if the White House agreed. He dismissed outrage over Trump's disclosures as U.S. politicians whipping up "anti-Russian sentiment". "And that includes the President of the United States of America", Green said on the House floor.

We may be hearing publicly from recently fired FBI Director James Comey sooner rather than later.

"I think it's reaching the point where it [Trump controversies] is of Watergate size and scale", McCain said. I guess that's why we won.

"Adversity makes your stronger", he added. Don't give in, don't back down. "And the more righteous your fight, the most opposition you will face".

This is the kind of conversation that rational, experienced presidents know not to have.




The Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday formally invited fired FBI Director James Comey to testify, and asked FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe for any memos or other notes the FBI possesses from Comey about his communications with administration officials.

"We need the facts", he said. Another letter from the Senate committee, which is co-chaired by Sens.

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said simply, "It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House". "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

South Carolina's senior senator wants the FBI director fired by President Donald Trump to testify on reports Trump told him to drop an investigation into an aide linked to Russian Federation.

While the White House denied access to the meeting to USA media, the Russians published photos of Trump smiling and shaking hands with his Russian guests, a move that angered the White House.

What does Michael Flynn's resignation mean for Trump?

Does this rise to the level of criminal obstruction of justice?

With the news of the Comey memo, Democrats have increased their talks about impeaching Trump.

He says it was an open secret that Trump recorded visitors to his Trump Tower office in the years before he became the commander in chief.
