White House knew sacked adviser was under investigation

19 Mai 2017

The Senate Intelligence Committee also wants Comey to testify both publicly and in private.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump at the White House on February 16, 2017.

News reports, for example, say that Trump is furious with his son-in-law for recommending Comey's firing.

The FBI and several congressional panels are probing allegations of collusion between Trump's team and Russian Federation, something the president flatly denies.

He added: "Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media".

"I'm hopeful we can reach agreement in a bipartisan fashion on how to move forward in a professional manner", Graham said. That's when, Comey later wrote, the president had asked him to ease off Flynn.

Later, Flynn emerged as a sharp critic of Obama's handling of national security matters, while supporting Trump's long-shot run for the presidency.

A US Senate panel investigating possible Russian interference in US elections and possible collusion with President Donald Trump's campaign team has requested that James Comey, the sacked Federal Bureau of Investigation director, testify before its members.

His concerns surfaced again earlier this week after another report revealed that Trump discussed highly classified information while Russian diplomats were visiting the White House.

President Donald Trump didn't appear to break any law by sharing highly classified information with Russian Federation, but that doesn't make it any less problematic for America's intelligence agencies and their overseas partners.

As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.

"It's falling out of the trees, the evidence", he said.

The commotion around Trump's statements on Flynn has somewhat obscured his no less chilling request that Comey jail journalists for publishing information based on leaks - something that has never happened in the history of this country. To date, no Republican has publicly voiced support for impeachment.

Trump promised on the campaign trail to prevent Muslims from entering the USA, but his January 27 order to ban travelers from certain Muslim-majority countries was blocked by the courts, which said the U.S. constitution banned discrimination on religious grounds. That is why Congress needs to focus on establishing the truth about this matter, and soon.

To lawyer Luskin, the talk of criminal charges misses the point.
