Senate Judiciary Committee requests Comey memos, tapes

President Trump asked for his first foreign trip to be shortened from nine to five days, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The senators asked McGahn to provide the committee with "all White House records memorializing interactions with Mr. Comey relating to the FBI's investigation of alleged ties between President Trump's associates and Russian Federation, or the Clinton email investigation, including all audio recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, and memoranda".

Also Tuesday, in an extraordinary turn of events, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions with the diplomats. Trump told The Associated Press by telephone after the meeting that he "learned a lot" but declined to say whether he accepted their conclusion about Russian Federation.

But she said the two scandals stemmed from the same problem - Mr Trump's lack of political experience. He has recently been increasingly critical of the Trump administration following news reports alleging that the President had casually given Russians highly classified intelligence during an Oval Office visit and that he had allegedly pressured former FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into a member of his staff. "I hope you can let this go".

Trump abruptly fired FBI director James Comey last Tuesday, supposedly because of his poor handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server.

House Republican Justin Amash of MI said that it may have been an abuse of his office. The White House is disputing a report that President Donald Trump asked Comey to shut down an investigation into ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn. But there is more than enough cause for concern, and we're heartened to see that congressional Republicans agree. The candidate who threatens to jail his opponent easily becomes the president who instructs his FBI director to close an inconvenient investigation. According to John McCain, Trump's scandals are "reaching Watergate size and scale".

The White House has denied any improper conduct.

King, who generally votes with the Democrats, said, "We don't want to get into the situation where we're charging our president based on any kind of political considerations". "But when you add them all up, you have a very plausible obstruction of justice case, I think". Flynn is one of the subjects of the FBI investigation.

Trump fired Flynn on February 13, on grounds that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russians.

Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, said they have asked Comey to testify before the panel in both open and closed sessions. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said. Comey said he replied that "I agree he is a good guy" but said nothing to Trump about limiting the investigation.

It's far too soon to make a definitive judgment about whether any laws have been broken in connection with the president's contacts with James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he fired a week ago.
