ACLU Files to Get Comey's Memo on Trump Conversation

Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, and Vice Chairman U.S. Sen.

But, he added, the main target of Putin's intervention was domestic opinion, as has been the case with most moves by the Russian president that baffle and dismay foreigners.

Trump fired Flynn in February from the key White House posting after routine US eavesdropping on foreign officials showed he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to Washington in the weeks before Trump assumed power in late January.

While the Utah Republican has made his wish to have Comey testify public, he seems to have hit a snag extending the invitation to Comey personally.

The White House denied Comey's version of what happened, saying that "the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end an investigation, including any investigation involving Gen. Flynn". "The President has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations".

Concern about Trump's handling of classified information had also been reported earlier this year.

"I don't know why people are getting spun up about obstruction here", Luskin said. "There is an FBI investigation going on right now with all things related to Russian Federation, done by the career professionals at the FBI who are going to continue to be career professionals". But the swirling questions about his conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in CT that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly".

President Donald Trump's transition team was told weeks before his inauguration that Michael Flynn was under federal investigation for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for the Turkish government.

Any investigation would pay close attention to the timeline.

"Once the President is impeached, then the Senate can have a trial to determine the guilt or innocence of the President - whether he is guilty or not guilty to be more specific". "I hope you can let this go", Trump reportedly told Comey during a private meeting, because Flynn is a "good guy".
