Democrat to Congress: President Trump 'must be impeached'

Russian FM mocks US media over intelligence-sharing reports

Russian FM mocks US media over intelligence-sharing reports

The request comes after the New York Times published a story Tuesday night alleging President Trump told Comey to "let go" of the FBI's investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. I think that's there a lot of questions that other people - they're out there talking about this event and what's appropriate with some of the stuff with respect to what Dir.

With an FBI Investigation and four separate congressional inquiries underway, senior Republicans may insist that these investigations run their course, though Mr Comey may testify publicly before one of the committees, a development that could generate further revelations.

Democrats in congress are demanding an independent commission to investigate Mr Trump's ties to Russian Federation and on Wednesday the first Republican in congress raised the idea of impeachment.

The White House initially said the decision was motivated by Comey's mishandling of the probe into Hillary Clinton's emails - but Trump himself undercut that explanation by saying he always meant to fire Comey and that his decision was linked to the Russian Federation probe.

January 6, 2017: Comey is among a group of four top USA intelligence officials who briefed then-President-elect Donald Trump on their conclusions that Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election on his behalf. Walters delivered the memos to Alexander Haig, then Nixon's chief of staff, who told Nixon that allowing Walters to testify before an upcoming hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee would help damage Dean's reputation. The candidate who threatens to jail his opponent easily becomes the president who instructs his FBI director to close an inconvenient investigation. "We need answers, and fast", said U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester.

More questions: Why did Mr. Comey not alert his superiors about Mr. Trump's comments on the Flynn investigation?

"If the USA administration considers it possible, we are ready to provide a record of Lavrov's conversation with Trump" to USA lawmakers, Putin said at a press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. "You can weigh in at impeachdonaldtrumpnow.com", Green said.

"But everybody gets a fair trial in this country", Amash told reporters as he left a House GOP conference meeting. Democrats demanded an independent commission to dig into his firing of FBI Director James Comey, but Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan cautioned against "rushing to judgement".

January 22, 2017: Two days after taking office, Trump appears to single out Comey at a White House reception to thank law enforcement officers and others that helped during the inauguration. Liberal intellectual and The View co-host Sunny Hostin couldn't contain her excitement at the thought of Comey writing down detailed accounts of his meetings with Trump on Wednesday's show.

Fresh off of House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz calling for the FBI to turn over memos reportedly written by former Director James Comey, the Senate Intelligence Committee is doing the same as part of its larger investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. "That's very hard when you're dealing with the firing of an Federal Bureau of Investigation director, a subject about which the President may have said all kinds of contrary things". Jeff Flake said of a special prosecutor. The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

"He is flunking all the rules of crisis management", said a Washington lawyer involved in several White House investigations who spoke anonymously.
