Trump to embark on high-stakes 8-day trip abroad

Green calls for impeachment on floor of Congress

Green calls for impeachment on floor of Congress

Trump tried to shut down the FBI investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, US media reported on Tuesday. Spicer insisted that Comey's description of the meeting was inaccurate, and he declined to expand on the White House's previous denial of the memo. Trump fired Comey May 9. In tweets, Chaffetz added that he had his "subpoena pen ready" and that he has already invited Comey to testify at a May 24 hearing.

Trump himself hasn't directly addressed the latest allegations that he pressured Comey to drop the Flynn investigation.

On Wednesday, the Department of Justice appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller to be the special counsel in charge of the Russian Federation investigation.

"All over the world, no matter where you go, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is special", Mr Trump said.

Israeli officials have declined to confirm whether they were the source of the information Trump shared, but have been quick to say counterterrorism coordination with the U.S.is strong. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said.

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has since responded to those comments, noting that the "President doesn't get to jail journalists". "If an investigation comes out and shows that he crossed that line, sure".

Stephen Lynch joined the handful of Democrats on Capitol Hill publicly discussing the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Ms May was the first foreign leader to meet with Mr Trump following his inauguration, and has repeatedly reaffirmed the special relationship between the two countries: a military and economic alliance dating back to 19th century.

But he then took a more serious tone, accusing Americans of "rocking the internal political situation in the US under anti-Russian slogans".

The White House said it was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr Comey".

Asked if he'd ever done anything that would merit impeachment, Trump said, "I think that's totally ridiculous. I'm not going to reach a conclusion until I see all of the evidence". He's been recording people his entire business career", Hurd, the author of Lost Tycoon: "The Many Lives Of Donald J. Trump, told Inside Edition.

Scalise's spokesman Chris Bond released a statement clarifying his position on the Comey debate.

Top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff suggested Wednesday that Comey should testify in Congress.

"We need the facts", he said.
