Senate panel wants James Comey to testify

Senate panel wants James Comey to testify

Chaffetz is not the only one who has reached out to Comey - the Senate Intelligence Committee invited Comey to testify in both closed and open sessions on Wednesday as well - so those "networks" should be pretty easy to find.

Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), who has spent 18 years in Congress and chairs an appropriations subcommittee, told reporters in the Capitol that he wanted an independent commission to probe the links between Trump and Russian Federation and that Comey ought to testify before Congress in short order. The Times also reports that the day after Trump talked to Comey about Flynn, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus asked Comey to assist with pushing back against reports that during the campaign, Trump associates had been in contact with Russian intelligence officials.

Trump tweeted after firing Comey last week.

The 59-year-old Flynn has already been at the heart of several controversies in Trump's four-month presidency and now will face new scrutiny with the appointment Wednesday of special counsel Robert Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the county's top criminal investigative agency.

Isaiah Thomas rips Draymond Green after Kelly Olynyk comments
Just a few minutes later, Smart took the same walk and smiled at Olynyk - already sitting in his vehicle and waiting to go home. All he did was score 26 during Game 7 alone to push his team into the winner's circle on a win-or-go-home night.

This, however, requires the support of a majority of members of the House of Representatives.

They asked the White House to turn over 'records of interactions with former Director Comey, including any audio recordings'.

"Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media", he said. "Since he's left government, the old telephone number that I had for him, I haven't been able to get through". Ms. Shiflett's president should clearly be investigated for obstruction of justice. The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

Trump promised on the campaign trail to prevent Muslims from entering the United States, but his January 27 order to ban travelers from certain Muslim-majority countries was blocked by the courts, which said the U.S. constitution banned discrimination on religious grounds. Michael Isikoff, citing two sources close to Flynn, reports that Flynn told "small group of loyalists" at a restaurant in northern Virginia that he's still in touch with Trump.

Boston Celtics land top draft pick while advancing
The draft is considered a strong one, loaded with point guards such as Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and De'Aaron Fox. Not bad for a team that's still one of the four left playing in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

House and Senate committees have immediately - and rightly - requested copies of the memos related to this controversy.

The day after Comey's ouster, Trump received Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and its ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak, to whom he divulged highly classified intelligence, according to the Washington Post.

The Congressman said that his call for impeachment is a position of conscience for him and asked the American people to speak up.

Microsoft says WannaCry ransomware must be a wake-up call for governments
Ransomware is a term that we will be hearing more about, and 2017 will go down as the year with the highest number of attacks. The Computer Emergency Response Team has suggested using patches in users' Windows systems to prevent the bug from spreading.
