Senate Intel Committee Wants Comey Memos And Testimony

Senate Intel Committee Wants Comey Memos And Testimony

The Senate intelligence committee wants former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to appear before the panel in both open and closed sessions.

"If the allegations are true, yes", the Michigan Republican said when asked if the allegations are grounds for impeachment.

"But we're a long way away from anything like that", Mr. Kasich, a strong critic of the President, said, of impeachment.

Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to raise the specter of impeachment. "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo that sources read out to several media platforms. Trump later fired Comey.

The Senate intelligence committee first requested from the Federal Bureau of Investigation copies of his memos, said the panel's top Democrat, Sen.

But the House is in play and its most at-risk GOP members have been quick to sound the alarm about President Donald Trump.

Green said he is calling for Trump's impeachment for obstruction of justice, stemming from the firing of James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Cummings reminded reporters that panel chairman Jason Chaffetz held a hearing featuring Comey just 48 hours after Comey announced there was no evidence warranting charges against Hillary Clinton after an investigation found she had improperly handled classified information on a private email server. "...This Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story", the President said last week, explaining his decision to fire Mr. Comey as the Federal Bureau of Investigation director on May 9.

"We need the facts", Ryan told reporters at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.

Warner would not say if Comey had accepted the committee's invitation - sent Wednesday - but said he was confident Comey will appear. He had not been briefed on it according to the national security advisor.

Ryan raised questions about Comey's account of that meeting. "That means before rushing to judgment we get all the pertinent information", Ryan said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has lashed out at USA politicians whipping up what he described as "anti-Russian sentiment" for being either "stupid" or "dangerous". "It is obvious that there are some people out there that want to hurt the president".

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

Russian President Vladimir Putin then responded, saying that no classified information had been shared with his officials.

The White House on Tuesday defended Trump discussing with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak an Islamic State group terror threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.

The New York Times reported that Mr Trump had, during one of their conversations, asked Mr Comey to "let it go" when it came to the investigation into alleged ties between Russian Federation and former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.

The White House issued a furious denial after the notes were disclosed late Tuesday, near the end of a tumultuous day spent beating back potentially disastrous news reports from dawn to dusk. A section of opinion makers argues that the President's behaviour constitutes obstruction of justice and he must be impeached.
