Trump, dogged by questions at home, makes first trip abroad

Trump, dogged by questions at home, makes first trip abroad

The White House has disputed Comey's account of his February conversation with Trump concerning Flynn but has not offered specifics. "It is obvious - there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

Now, just as talks of impeachment reach the floor of Congress, it seems those who keep the presidency afloat-scheduling Trump's daily events, meetings and classified intelligence briefings-could soon be on their way out, fearing permanent stains on their careers, being fired by their boss and the uncertainty of his own possible removal.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan cautioned against "rushing to judgment".

The President has the utmost respect for the law enforcement agencies, and all investigations, the White House said, adding that this is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Comey.

FBI investigators reportedly discovered multiple contacts that are a cause for concern including Paul Manafort, former Trump Campaign Chairman, Carter Page, former Foreign Policy Advisor and Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor.

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

The questions about Trump's conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly".

Lavrov said: "So, if you're talking about that, I see no secret here".

The Senate intelligence committee on Wednesday asked Comey to appear before the panel in both open and closed sessions. Don't give in, don't back down.

Mr Flynn, a retired general, is under scrutiny in multiple federal investigations into financial links to foreign governments and whether he helped Russian Federation interfere in the presidential election.




"As President I wanted to share with Russian Federation... which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline safety", he defensively said in two postings on his Tweet account.

The outburst came amid intensifying pressure on the president in the wake of his firing of James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week, in the midst of a probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian attempts to tilt the United States election in his favour.

John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said late Tuesday that the developments had reached "Watergate size and scale".

Comey, who noted the request in a memo, was sacked by Trump on 9 May.

The White House is in a "downward spiral" and needs to do something to get "under control", Republican Senator Bob Corker has said.

"While the President has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", it said.

Notably, however, Comey has written "similar memos...about every phone call and meeting he has had with the president", the Times reported.

Trump is leaving Friday for his first foreign trip, to the Mideast and beyond, and aides had hoped the disarray at home would have been calmed if not resolved by take-off time. Tim Scott, R-South Carolina.

The Justice Department says Mueller, the new special counsel, has been given sweeping power to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, including potential links between Moscow and Trump associates.
