FBI Director James Comey prepares to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., May 3, 2017. The news of Trump sharing intelligence with the Russians was first reported by The Washington Post. Anxious about keeping tabs on the highly sensitive material, the Obama administration officials set new limits on some classified information and explicitly barred Trump aides from viewing that material in their transition offices. "I hope you can let this go", Comey allegedly wrote in the internal memo, to which only he has access.
Kushner has led daily morning meetings to discuss the trip's agenda and objectives, according to a senior administration official speaking on the condition of anonymity. He also cheekily added that he would provide "proof" of the latter statement - but only with the White House's approval.
Flynn was forced to resign February 13 after reports of the Yates-White House conversation.
Mr Trump, who has personally not made any public comments regarding the Comey memo, did not address either scandal in his speech to cadets.
"I'm convinced that the president did nothing that he thought was outside the best interest of the country", said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.
"We're not on anybody's side, ever", he said in a March speech. Some of this is not without merit, but he lacks the patience or charm to sell this policy to his own government and the US Congress. Mr Putin's own actions - whether his suspected cyber activities or his repressive behaviour at home - have not been helpful to his cause.
Virtually every agency comprised within the USA intelligence community supports the claim that Russian Federation performed a massive series of cyber attacks against last year's general election, hacking email servers for the Democratic Party and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's campaign.
"There are a lot of unanswered questions. That is what Congress does when conducting oversight of the executive branch". In 2007, he recounted to a rapt congressional audience the dramatic hospital room clash three years earlier with Bush officials over the approval of a domestic surveillance program. But he later told NBC's Lester Holt that he planned to fire Comey "regardless of [Rosenstein's] memo".
The House speaker said he still has confidence in Trump.
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. When that ended, Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey, and he eventually turned the conversation to Flynn.
The White House vigorously denied it all.
The second letter was sent to McCabe requesting notes or a memorandum written by Comey with respect to his meeting with President Donald Trump in the White House, the statement added.
Meanwhile, the opposition Democrats demanded an investigation into the allegations and Trump's relations with Russian Federation.
"It's the whole pattern here, it's firing Comey and also directing him to end the investigation against Flynn, all of these things are done because he wants to stop an investigation from reaching the highest echelons of the administration and possibly him personally, " Ohlin said.
