"There may be grounds", Lynch told WBUR's Radio Boston.

President Donald Trump said Thursday he did not ask FBI Director James Comey to end his investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. President Donald Trump was about to get the question - the one he'd avoided for almost 48 hours but could no longer.

"It's hard to imagine what these people, who generate such nonsense and rubbish, can dream up next", said Putin.

U.S. Rep. Justin Amash is the first Republican lawmaker to float the idea of impeachment if the memos written by former FBI Director James Comey are true, according to The Hill. "Since he's left government, the old telephone number that I had for him, I haven't been able to get through". He added that the Trump administration's account of Comey's firing had "a lot of inconsistencies".

Trump denies asking Comey to stop Flynn probe

Senate investigators want to know what Comey does about Trump
Asked at a Wednesday conference if he could hypothetically conceive of a similar conversation between former President George W. In 1868, Andrew Johnson was impeached after violating the Tenure of Office Act - and acquitted.

U.S. President Donald Trump is in "impeachment territory" following revelations the president reportedly asked former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn, according to a former adviser to several past presidents, including Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

The White House was also warned by acting attorney general Sally Yates that Flynn might be blackmailed by the Russians for misrepresenting his conversation with the Russian ambassador to Vice President Mike Pence.

The Russian president said he initially found debates about Russia's meddling in USA politics as "funny" but said Moscow is now "concerned because it's hard to imagine what the people who produce such nonsense can come up with next". "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

There are "a number of encounters with the president that concerned him, and he wrote very detailed memos about those instances", the person said. "He is a good guy". Two members of the Senate intelligence committee, Senator Richard Burr and Senator Mark Warner, commented on the Senate's request. Putin's offer comes just days after several news reports claimed that Trump revealed classified information to Lavrov about an ISIS plot.
