Senate Intelligence Committee invites Comey to testify publicly

Senate Intelligence Committee invites Comey to testify publicly

The committee also asked acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to give the committee any notes that Comey might have made regarding discussions he had with White House or Justice Department officials about Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Putin did not specify how, exactly, he might have come to have an exact transcript of the meeting. Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

U.S. President Donald Trump's sharing of highly classified intelligence with Russian Federation could cause a problem with efforts to seek cooperation from allies in dealing with North Korea, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday.

But she said the two scandals stemmed from the same problem - Mr Trump's lack of political experience.

The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Wednesday they are seeking notes written by former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, as controversy flares after a report saying President Donald Trump asked Comey to halt a probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

March 8, 2017: During a cybersecurity conference at Boston College, Comey said he planned to serve his entire 10-year term, quipping, "You're stuck with me for another 6 years".




Heads of a trio of congressional committees demanded copies of all memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote about his interactions with President Trump as well as any tapes Trump recorded of their meetings on Wednesday while asking Comey to testify, as pressure mounted on Capitol Hill to find out why Trump fired him. In the messages, Comey reportedly acknowledged that he approved most of the Office of Legal Counsel opinions authorizing the techniques, but he said he'd urged then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to advise the White House to abandon the harshest methods. The request came the day after a report that President Donald Trump asked Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation and Turkey, per a memo Comey wrote after his February meeting with the president.

Defenders of Trump have been signaling they may attempt to turn the spotlight back on Comey, asking why the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director didn't blow the whistle or quit after the February conversation with Trump.

Do you think the information in the Comey memo is true? Flynn was forced to resign on February 13 amid questions over his contact with the Russian ambassador to the United States and discussions of US sanctions.

"Chairman Burr and I have sent out a request for Director Comey to testify before the Intelligence Committee both in closed and open", Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) told reporters Wednesday afternoon. Trump later fired Comey. He is a good guy.

"Obstruction of justice in the case of Nixon, in the case of Clinton in the late 90s, has been considered an impeachable offense", Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) said on CNN Tuesday night, while cautioning that he wants to know the facts before suggesting impeachment was on the table.
