Senate Intel Committee Wants Comey Memos And Testimony

20 Mai, 2017, 04:39 | Author: Come Portier

The New York Times report, which was based on an interview with current and former American officials "familiar with how the United States obtained the information", said the Israelis had previously urged the U.S. to be careful about the handling of intelligence that Trump discussed.

Gergen made the comments shortly after The New York Times was first to report Comey had noted in a memo Trump had asked him to stop investigating his former national security adviser.

"While the President has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", it said.

An unnamed source also told CNN Comey was "so appalled by the request that he wanted to document it".

The White House has denied the allegations of obstruction of justice.

During his CNN discussion, Gergen said the apparent memo shows Trump may have been trying to influence the probe into Flynn's ties with Russian Federation.

Another New York Times report revealed that the USA ally from whom the information Mr Trump shared originated was Israel.

"So, from my point of view, this is of enormous outcome for his presidency". "The president is not above the law", Green said in his address to Congress.

"We should not be alarming people, because we still have to gather the facts".

"We need the facts", Ryan told reporters at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. "That means before rushing to judgment we get all the pertinent information".

Mr Comey had responded to the committee's initial request to hold a closed session after his 9 May firing by saying he would testify but would prefer to do so publicly. "I can imagine after kind of what [Comey's] been through that taking a week to chill out would seem appropriate, but my expectation is that we'll hear something early next week".

Ryan raised questions about Comey's account of that meeting.

Top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff suggested Wednesday that Comey should testify in Congress.

"I rise today with a sense of responsibility and duty to the people who have elected me, a sense of duty to this country, a sense of duty to the Constitution of the United States of America", Green said on the House floor.
