Republicans starting to turn as committee asks to see Comey documents

VLADIMIR Putin and Donald Trump

Green's demand follows a bombshell report that Trump may have asked former FBI James Comey to back off of his investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"Last week, the President tweeted a message implying that the White House may have recordings of interactions with Mr. Comey", wrote the ranking members of the committee, seemingly referring to Trump's May 12th tweet warning about "tapes" of conversations with Comey.

But O'Sullivan said it was not realistic to expect the Trump administration's justice department to charge the sitting President.

This isn't Amash's first foray into one of Trump's controversies. "There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign".

"I spoke to him (Lavrov) today", said Putin with a smile. "We have no intention of interfering there and we will not do so", the Russian president vowed. He has indicated [Twitter post] a willingness to subpoena the Federal Bureau of Investigation to obtain the documents if necessary, writing "I need to see it sooner rather than later".

Asked if he thought he had committed a crime or impeachable offense, the president said "it's totally ridiculous, everyone thinks so". "Everyone thinks so", he said when asked whether he ever thought he did something recently that merited criminal charges or impeachment.

"A lot of people don't do that", the Maryland Democrat said. "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the president asked FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into Flynn's ties to Russian Federation on the grounds that he's "a good guy".

According to the Washington Post's bombshell report, two USA officials said on Monday that Trump had disclosed highly classified information to Lavrov about a planned ISIS operation during their meeting.

Chairman Jason Chaffetz is all set to schedule a hearing inviting former FBI Director James Comey to testify publicly before his committee - if the Utah Republican can just find his phone number. "No politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly".
