Donald Trump's Seven Days in May

Asked about the memo and a shift in strategy on Air Force One Wednesday, press secretary Sean Spicer repeatedly pointed to the statement, declining to elaborate.

Trump was referring to the federal investigation into Flynn, who resigned from his post a day before Comey met with the president. The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen.

The president has the utmost respect for the law enforcement agencies, and all investigations, the White House said, adding that this is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Comey.

A separate letter, addressed to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, sought notes or memos written by Comey about conversations he had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to the Russian Federation investigation. "Our job is to be responsible, sober and focus only on gathering the facts".

Ryan declined to call for a special prosecutor in remarks to reporters earlier in the day and warned against "rushing to judgment".

Rep. David Valadao, who represents a San Joaquin Valley district where Clinton beat Trump by 15 percentage points, was careful not to say much on the issue.

Republicans, meanwhile, have continued asking questions about the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server a year ago.

Despite the denial, the latest allegation immediately feeds fresh fuel to the flames that have been grilling the White House since Trump's firing of Comey last week, distracting his agenda while plunging his administration into a fast accumulating credibility crisis.

Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and ranking member Mark Warner (D-Va.) struck a bipartisan tone on Wednesday in their request for "any notes or memorandum" regarding communication between Comey and White House or Justice Department officials about Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 election.

Trump, Erdogan Avoid Discord Over Kurds in White House Talks
Trump and Erdogan used part of their meeting Tuesday to discuss the ongoing fight against ISIS. . In his statement to reporters, Trump did not directly address his decision to arm the Kurds.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday became the third congressional committee requesting any memos fired FBI Director James Comey wrote about his communications with President Donald Trump and other top US officials, and the committee also asked the White House to provide recordings of interactions with Comey.

Trump and his Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, have defended the disclosure of information to the Russians. I am barely exaggerating when I say this. Mueller is resigning from his law firm in order to avoid any conflicts of interest with firm clients or attorneys. In many cases, they represent states or districts that voted strongly for Trump, and where the GOP base still ardently supports the president.

The appointment came amid a growing Democratic outcry for someone outside the Justice Department to handle the politically charged investigation.

Comey's account of his conversation with Trump raises serious questions about whether the president engaged in obstruction of justice by pressuring the FBI director to shut down the investigation. The bureau at the time was intensifying its examination of any links between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign team.

In a freaky twist on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions. I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.

He also pledges to never stop fighting for the people and issues that are important to the country's future.

On Capitol Hill, there were signs that Republicans, who mostly held the line after Comey's ouster, were growing alarmed by Trump's White House operation and impatient for something to be done about it. "It is obvious that there are some people out there that want to harm the president", Ryan said Wednesday. I don't think what we have from Trump comes close to that.

Rocked by days of damaging developments, President Donald Trump's White House is looking ahead to the president's upcoming foreign trip - and trying to get his plane in the air with as little additional turbulence as possible. Congressional oversight committees have requested those tapes but have so far not utilized the power of the subpoena.

"Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted", Chaffetz tweeted.
