Russian Federation probe: Trump cries victim of 'greatest witch hunt' in American history

  • Trump asked ex-FBI director James Comey to stop investigating Flynn’s Russia ties reports

"Our job is to get the facts and to be sober about doing that".

The president clearly feeling embattled after some House Democrats started calling for impeachment, but Democratic leadership has said it's too early to start using the "I" word, saying the evidence is not there.

"I think we've seen this movie before", the Arizona Republican said at a dinner to receive the International Republican Institute's Freedom Award. The Senate Intelligence Committee also wants Comey to testify both publicly and in private. Trump told the Russians details of the plot that the USA had received from a partner country.

"It is obvious that there are some people out there that want to harm the president", Ryan of Wisconsin told reporters. This raised questions about whether the president improperly attempted to interfere with a federal investigation.

They also asked the country's leading law enforcement agency to hand over all correspondence from Mr. Comey, the White House and the Justice Department regarding the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. The Trump administration, along with Russian Federation, has denied the accusation.

A Comey associate says Comey wrote a memo after his encounter with the president, and congressional committees investigating the Russian Federation ties have requested to see the memo and other related documentation.

Asked on his way out of the news conference whether he still retained confidence in Trump, Ryan replied: "I do". "It also means more questions about the administration's ability to garner enough Republican, let alone bipartisan support, for the policy pledges for which investors are growing increasingly impatient".

The commentator was referring to the official White House line on Comey's firing that said Trump took the decision on the recommendation of the Justice Department. That began to change after Trump fired Comey on May 9 and continued this week with a report that Trump revealed highly classified intelligence to senior Russian officials, followed by news of his request to drop the Flynn probe.

A key issue Mueller may have to tackle is whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice, an offence that could be used in any effort in the Republican-led Congress to impeach him and remove him from office. Making light of the matter at a news conference in the Russian city of Sochi, Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of the meeting to USA lawmakers if that would help reassure them.

"Unfortunately the administration has given such conflicting information, the president's own tweets at times seem to contradict the statements made by staff", she said. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services.

Representative Mike Conaway of Texas, who is heading the House Intelligence Committee's investigation of Russian interference in last year's election, said Tuesday night that members of Congress have to "compartmentalize" amid White House distractions. After the news broke of the Comey memo, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., stood in the chamber and said, "I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate - history is watching".

"The last person Trump needs to vouch for him right now is Vladimir Putin", Schiff said in an interview with CBS News.

The incident, and Trump's response to it, shows he has no understanding of nor concern for the security of American citizens, one of his top responsibilities as president.

Afterward, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters that "everything he said was that you need to treat this investigation as if it may be a criminal investigation".

Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT, a member of the Judiciary Committee, called the memo as reported "powerful evidence of obstruction of justice".
