Putin offers transcript of Trump meeting with Lavrov

Putin offers transcript of Trump meeting with Lavrov

Houston Congressman Al Green called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the floor of Congress Wednesday morning.

The president might suffer political fallout from bringing in his own lawyer, these experts said, but President Trump should be receiving advice from a lawyer who represents him, not the White House.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins says she wants former FBI Director James Comey to deliver his memos and testify about a meeting in which President Trump allegedly asked him to end an investigation into possible ties to Russian Federation.

A day after the election, President Obama told Donald Trump that Michael Flynn, who he'd fired as head of Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, was not fit for a role in his administration.

But instead of discussing tax rates and structures, Ryan was faced with a series of questions about James Comey, who Trump fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week, and the Russian Federation investigation. If they do see the light of day, we could have a whole lot of stories like the one about the loyalty pledge and Trump asking Comey to shut down the Flynn investigation. "Congress really needs to get to the bottom of this".

As the argument escalated, Hansen allegedly kicked a dent in the rear passenger side of the vehicle and spit on the driver. Hansen has vehemently denied the allegations, labeling them "an old-fashioned shakedown".

The White House has denied the report, which came amid a furor over the president's discussions with Russian diplomats in which Trump is said to have disclosed classified information.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday mocked USA news reports suggesting President Donald Trump inappropriately shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on airplanes.

Ryan said he's most concerned about Republicans doing what they were elected to do, which is to solve peoples's problems.

Ryan warned against a rush to judgement: "It is obvious that there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

Ryan noted that he had relayed the message to his Republican colleagues.

Putin willing to hand over transcript of Russian official's meeting with Trump
The newspaper said Comey was in the Oval Office that day with other national security officials for a terrorism threat briefing. On Tuesday, people close to the matter said Comey kept detailed notes of his multiple conversations with Trump.

"We should take our oversight responsibilities seriously regardless of who is in power", Ryan said, according to a GOP source in the closed-door meeting. The candidate who threatens to jail his opponent easily becomes the president who instructs his FBI director to close an inconvenient investigation. In January, Trump reportedly sought a pledge of loyalty from Comey and failed to obtain it.

The Justice Department has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee a federal investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election.

The White House has played down the importance and secrecy of the information Trump gave to the Russians, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement.

Trump tweeted: James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press! "You can't let them get you down". The situation here is more like this: At worst, Trump asked a very ill-advised question in a private meeting with the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who then documented it in case he would ever need to go back and make use of the information. "And I'm sure we are going to want to hear from Mr. Comey about why, if this happens as he allegedly describes, why didn't he take action at the time", Ryan told reporters during a press conference.

Comey's memo, an apparent effort to create a paper trail of his contacts with the White House, would be the clearest evidence to date that the president has tried to influence the investigation.

But Smith, a member of the jury that also includes Jessica Chastain , Paolo Sorrentino and Park Chan-wook, stuck up for Netflix. She also stars in the second series of Top Of The Lake, which will be screened in full at the festival.

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