Two Senate panels seek Comey memos, Intel wants testimony

Two Senate panels seek Comey memos, Intel wants testimony

Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA), asked FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe for all "notes or memorandum" Comey may have left about conversations with the White House over the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. In a separate but related probe, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into Flynn's ties with Russian Federation.

Democratic lawmakers have demanded that the Justice Department name a special prosecutor to investigate the Russian Federation matter. Several Democrats and one Republican, maverick Michigan Representative Justin Amash, have said the Comey allegations could reach that level. "But everybody in this country gets a fair trial, including the president, or anyone else". "Let it go", as I say, psychiatrists use that phrase to people - patients who are obsessively compulsive: "you got to let it go, man".

For much of a frenzied day, Democrats and Republicans were asked not just whether there needed to be further investigations of the president, but whether impeachment, a power Congress has used against just three of its 45 presidents, was on their minds.

A simple majority is required in the House to impeach a president, which would lead to a trial by the Senate and possible removal from office. "I can not otherwise explain the accusations of the President that he handed Lavrov some sort of secrets", he added. "I said to myself, I said, you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won".

In remarks to reporters, Ryan, R-Wis., endorsed ongoing investigations by House committees, and declined to call for a special prosecutor or select committee, as Democrats and some fellow Republicans have demanded.

Additionally, Ford shares have dropped 40 percent since Mark Fields ascended to the CEO position in 2014. Trump, in January, tried to take credit when Ford announced it was canceling a second Mexican plant.

Trump is delivering commencement remarks at the US Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.

The White House went into a mad rush of damage control, with H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, making brief and carefully worded comments before declining questions. "Things will work out just fine".

Democrats pointed out that Ryan had called for Democrat Hillary Clinton to be denied classified briefings after Comey concluded past year that she was careless in how she handled classified information over her email accounts.

Trump won North Dakota with almost 63 percent of the vote in November, and Cramer said the state's residents are more concerned about policy issues like the Farm Bill than the recent reports coming out of the White House.

Ms Sturgeon added that it was vital Scotland's fishing industry could continue to have access to an worldwide export market. And they claimed it destroyed the SNP's reason for demanding a second independence referendum - to keep Scotland in the EU.

Asked on his way out of the news conference whether he still retained confidence in Trump, Ryan replied: "I do".

The White House issued a furious denial after the notes were disclosed late Tuesday, near the end of a tumultuous day spent beating back potentially disastrous news reports from dawn to dusk. Under an onslaught of Republican criticism, Comey says that to charge Clinton would have been unwarranted and mere "celebrity hunting".

The fresh USA crisis sank the dollar early on Wednesday as well as Hong Kong stocks amid worries Mr Trump's economy-boosting and tax-cutting agenda could be derailed.

He stressed the need to be clear-eyed and avoid speculation or innuendo, noting that "there are clearly a lot of politics being played" and those who might seek to harm the president. But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House.

Grassley also said, if there was interference, "then it seems to me Comey should have taken action on that interference".

Congressman calls for Trump's impeachment on House floor
Dumb in every way , but lots of grassroots liberals feel like this so go figure that House members are starting to mimic them. Democratic ownership of impeachment would also cement the loyalty of working-class Trump voters to the Republican Party.

The reports were based on a memo Comey wrote in February after meeting with the president.
