Handover all Comey documents on Trump, US Congress tells Federal Bureau of Investigation


"I hope you can let this go", Trump was alleged to have said to Comey, according to one of Comey's memos cited by The New York Times.

Several legal analysts have argued that any such request could be considered obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense.

The contemporaneous notes maintained by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are widely viewed as credible evidence in courts.

Comey reportedly wrote a memo following a meeting with the president on 14 February that revealed Trump had asked him to close an investigation into Flynn's actions.

Last week, the President tweeted a message implying that the White House may have recordings of interactions with Mr. Comey.

"Given what we read yesterday in the newspaper, Director Comey - or former Director Comey - will have to testify before Congress, I imagine before the Judiciary Committee, and he's going to have to turn over these notes and anything else that he kept..."

The Times said it was part of a paper trail created by Mr Comey, who documented what he saw as Mr Trump's efforts to improperly interfere in the ongoing probe.

Ushakov said "any contacts" with the US president are "important" but he would not reply to the question whether the classified information that Trump reportedly shared with Lavrov and Kislyak was valuable for Russian Federation.

The White House on Tuesday defended Trump discussing with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak an Islamic State group terror threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.

Comey took extensive notes during that meeting, which took place in the hospital room of former attorney general John Ashcroft.

News of the reported Comey allegations prompted swift reaction on Capitol Hill.

"I do not believe in trial by newspaper article or investigations based on anonymous sources", Graham said in a statement.

Flynn was appointed national security adviser despite this revelation, which was made on January 4 to the transition team's chief lawyer Donald McGahn, now the White House counsel, the New York Times said.

Congressional hearings and public disclosure are the way to move forward. "I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate, history is watching", said top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer.
