House panel seeking documents about Comey ouster

19 Mai, 2017, 23:20 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is mocking US news reports suggesting President Donald Trump shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on airplanes.

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.

But other legal experts said investigators would consider a series of interactions among the president, the FBI and the Justice Department about the Flynn investigation and a broader counterintelligence probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that "the country is being tested in unprecedented ways" after learning of new reporting saying that Trump asked Comey to shelve the investigation.

In an interview with CNN, Republican representative Carlos Curbelo compared Mr Trump allegedly pressuring Mr Comey to drop the Flynn inquiry, to the obstruction of justice cases that led to impeachment proceedings for former presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. Central to them is the idea of intent or bad goal, or what Trump may have been thinking when he allegedly told Comey in February that "I hope you can let this go".

Ironically, President Trump would go on to approve a proposal to arm Kurdish forces in early May 2017, despite the warnings and protests from Turkey.

"I would like the public to know but now that we have a special counsel I'm not so sure we can", said Sen. "I just don't know".

Also on Tuesday, a new poll shows almost half of USA voters (48 percent) said they would support Trump's impeachment, while only 41 percent would oppose such charges.

"No", Trump said in response to a reporter's question.

Lavrov says media reported that Trump told him "terrorists are capable of stuffing laptops, all kinds of electronic devices, with untraceable explosive materials", information he says the administration revealed with the laptop ban.

Chaffetz had Comey in front of the oversight committee within 48 hours of his announcement that Clinton wouldn't face criminal charges, Cummings said. Criticism of the president intensified after it emerged on Monday that he discussed sensitive national security information about Islamic State with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russia's ambassador in Washington at a White House meeting last week. The chair and ranking member, respectively, of a judiciary subcommittee focused on terrorism, Graham and Whitehouse have also called on Comey to testify publicly in front of their body.

The request came after The New York Times revealed on Tuesday the existence of a memo Comey had written showing Trump's attempt to obstruct the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

"I can't think of a single Republican colleague of mine that I've talked to, at least privately, who hasn't expressed real concern [about the memo]", Warner told reporters Wednesday.

A U.S. official who confirmed the disclosure said the revelation potentially put the source at risk.

Pressure has been building on Trump over the Russian Federation issue since his firing last week of FBI chief James Comey, who had been leading a federal probe into the matter. Chaffetz's letter to Interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe requested any records the bureau has related to communications between Comey and Trump.
