Comey prepared extensively for his conversations with Trump, report says

"It's backfiring on them", Arizona resident Nadia Larsen said of media reports about possible collusion with Russian Federation or Trump's conversations with then-FBI Director James Comey.

The top Senate Democrat, Chuck Schumer, said Mr Rosenstein did "the right thing" by appointing Mr Mueller. The Russian leader said he could supply Congress with a transcript of an Oval Office meeting between Mr...

The moves comes a day after it was disclosed that Comey had written a memo detailing how Trump had asked him to shut down the investigation into Flynn.

"I believe that's why the deputy attorney general went out and wrote his very very strong letter", he said. The Times noted that the conversations prove that Trump's team knew about the investigation earlier than previously said.

But O'Sullivan said it was not realistic to expect the Trump administration's justice department to charge the sitting President. The FBI has been looking into Flynn for months as part of a counterintelligence investigation.

The documentation of Trump's request is the clearest evidence that the President has tried to directly influence the justice department and FBI investigation into links between Trump's associates and Russian Federation. "Nothing will change by virtue of Director Comey's termination".

The Senate Intelligence Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee have also requested similar records from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"I think it is totally ridiculous".

The comments by Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings came as Democrats sought to force a House vote to establish an independent commission to investigate Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Ashcroft, weak from gallbladder surgery, was under pressure from White House officials Alberto Gonzales and Andrew Card to sign papers reauthorizing the domestic surveillance program secretly launched after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. "By having someone like Bob Mueller head whatever investigation assures the American people that there's no undue influence, be it here or be it at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, or within the Justice Department or FBI".

"We've got a lot to ask him about", Lynch said. (Curbelo supports a special congressional committee dedicated to only Russia.): "What if you get someone like Ken Starr, who is erratic and really takes away credibility from the process?"

That's not how a majority of Republicans in Congress felt before Wednesday's announcement.
