Sen. Kaine: 'We Need to Hear From The President'

Here's What One Endangered Republican Said About Trump

The White House has insisted Trump's comments were "wholly appropriate".

The Republican head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr, went further by requesting Comey himself appear before the panel "in both open and closed sessions".

Leaving their meeting Wednesday, a number of conservative House Republicans said they and their constituents remained firmly supportive of the president, and they questioned why there are so many leaks coming out that are hurtful to Trump. But acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told Congress last week that Comey "enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does today". Don't give in, don't back down.

The White House has said that Flynn was dismissed for misleading vice-president Mike Pence about a phone call with the Russian ambassador, during which he reportedly discussed ways of softening U.S. sanctions on Russia.

Lavrov's recounting of the White House talk skipped over the part that raised the most alarm - that Trump allegedly not only discussed the terror threat, but also revealed the USA learned about it from an Israeli intelligence source, potentially compromising the security relationship between the two nations. "It's true, I get the impression, that many USA media are working in this vein".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's decision to name former FBI Director Rob Meuller to oversee the probe into Russian election tampering and possible Trump campaign collusion "hurts our country terribly", President Donald Trump told TV news anchors lunching with him today.

Comey's memo, an apparent effort to create a paper trail of his contacts with the White House, would be the clearest evidence to date that the president has tried to influence the investigation.

"If that actually happened and Comey didn't report it to the House, he should've been fired right then", Alabama Rep.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain said late Tuesday that the developments had reached "a point where it's of Watergate size and scale". When New York Times reporter Judith Miller refused to name her confidential source, she spent nearly three months in jail for contempt of court. The Justice Department denied that Rosenstein had made the threat, but the White House ultimately shifted the responsibility off Rosenstein.

Senator Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat, said Rosenstein wasn't prepared to outline other circumstances surrounding the firing of Comey out of his belief that it could come within the territory of Mueller's investigation.

The intensifying drama comes as Trump is set to embark Friday on his first foreign trip, which had been optimistically viewed by some aides as an opportunity to reset an administration floundering under an inexperienced president. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said.

Asked on his way out of the news conference whether he still retained confidence in Trump, Ryan replied: "I do".

Joy Behar expressed a concern that even if the memo does exist, Mike Pence might lie by saying he was in the room and didn't hear Trump ask Comey to drop any investigation.
