Former FBI Director Comey to Testify Before US Congress Soon


Comey's memo was yet more bad news for the Republican party, which was still dealing with a Washington Post report from Monday night that alleged Trump had disclosed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov. According to the story, the president told Comey that he should consider putting reporters in prison for publishing classified information.

"We look forward to getting this whole situation behind us", he said, vowing to focus his administration's resources instead on creating jobs, strengthening the military and reforming health care.

President Donald Trump declared himself the victim of the "greatest witch hunt" in American political history Thursday and slapped down accusations he tried to quash a probe into collusion between his campaign team and Russian Federation.

"If the United States administration finds it necessary, we are ready to provide the record of the conversation between Trump and Lavrov to the Senate and Congress".

Along with Russian Federation and Comey-related inquires, Ryan could also face questions about the health care bill, which is now making its way through the Senate. A day before Comey's meeting with Trump, Flynn had been ousted for what the White House said were misleading accounts of his conversations with Russia's USA ambassador.

"It is obvious that there are some people out there that want to harm the president", Ryan of Wisconsin told reporters. They made the recommendation over the former FBI director's handling of the investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's private email server.

Schiff said he would ask Comey, who was sacked by Trump on May 9, what concerned him about the conversation, if he reported it to superiors at the Justice Department and if there were any other talks with the president that concerned him. The Trump administration, along with Russian Federation, has denied the accusation.

Comey declined to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in the days following his firing.

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

Many Republicans agree that they should take a wait-and-see approach.

Hood said two other firefighters were transported to area hospitals - one a priority one transport and the other a priority two. A San Antonio firefighter was killed and two more were injured in a major fire Thursday night at a strip mall.


Ryan endorsed the House Oversight committee's request for the Federal Bureau of Investigation turn over all documents and recordings that detail communications between Comey and Trump. Putin made light of the matter at a news conference in Russian Federation, saying Moscow was ready to hand a transcript of the meeting to US lawmakers if that would help reassure them. The White House denies that Trump made the request to shut down the probe. At their news conference, Ryan and other House Republican leaders talked about National Police Week and their plans to overhaul the USA tax code before reporters raised questions about the Trump controversies. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said panel members were also inviting Comey to testify at an undetermined date.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that Mueller's appointment "confirms that the investigation into Russian intervention into our election will continue, as stated last week by Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe".

The comments attributed to President Trump cross a risky line.

Asked how Republicans will still get their work done, Conaway said, "Well, you get up every morning, put your shoes on and go to work".

Trump went on to dismiss as "totally ridiculous" the notion that he himself may have committed a prosecutable - or even impeachable - offence in recent months, as argued by some critics who suspect him of obstructing the FBI's probe.
