Time's latest cover depicts Kremlin takeover of White House

19 Mai 2017

Putin's remarks come as Washington was reeling over revelations late Tuesday that Trump personally appealed to FBI Director James Comey to abandon the bureau's investigation into National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

"Let's get to the bottom of what happened with the director". John Hoeven, R-N.D., told conservative radio host Scott Hennen Wednesday morning.

The unnamed officials said Israel had previously urged the U.S.to be cautious with the said information.

Comey was sacked by Trump last Tuesday, sparking a firestorm of allegations and political bickering over the timing and potential political nature of the removal of an FBI director with multiple pending investigations.

The Judiciary Committee letter to the White House mentioned the Times article, saying "the article alleged that Mr. Comey had memorialized a conversation with the President in which the President made statements that have been interpreted as asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to clear Mr. Flynn of alleged wrongdoing". But she said "it's very hard to characterize this one encounter as obstruction of justice".

Donald Trump's alleged divulgence of highly classified information to Russia's foreign minister and ambassador, has confirmed Israel's "worst fears", an intelligence official from the Middle Eastern state has reportedly said.

Earlier on Wednesday, GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger became one of the most high-profile Republicans to join the call for an independent commission or special prosecutor to investigate possible Trump ties to Russian Federation.

"To the extent the prior administration's records of interactions with Mr. Comey about these topics may now be housed at the National Archives or elsewhere, we ask that you make the relevant personnel there aware of the request and authorize them to release the records to the committee", the letter reads.

"Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media".

"Who is going to step out now and defend the president in these denials?"

Comey had previously declined an invitation to speak before the committee in a closed session, senators said last week.

"There are a lot of people heavily invested in bringing Donald Trump down", Cramer told Hennen.

But compounding the problem is that there are also hundreds of political positions now unfilled at departments that interface with the NSC, such as State and Defense. "Every couple days, there is a new aspect of this really unhappy situation", McCain said.

"I'm not disputing the facts in it".

"As far as I know, he didn't".

Just this time, it was the son.

Cramer said a special prosecutor is "unnecessary at this point, if ever".
