Ahead Of Possible Comey Hearing, Chaffetz Leaving Congress Early

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi cautiously praised the appointment of Mueller, calling it a "first step", but insisting "it can not be the last".

Two Senate committees have asked the FBI to turn over copies of any memos that former FBI Director James B. Comey wrote about his encounters with President Donald Trump.

The New York Times, citing a current and a former USA official, reported Tuesday that the information Trump divulged came from an Israeli intelligence asset based in Daesh-held territory in Syria.

But Chaffetz's threat to subpoena the records was too faint for his Democratic counterpart. Now there's a Republican in the White House, and McConnell sees a long-sought opportunity.

But Ms May said she remained confident, highlighting the need to co-operate with the U.S. and other allies to counter the security threats posed by Islamic State and al-Qaeda.

Asked if he thought he had committed a crime or impeachable offense, the president said "it's totally ridiculous, everyone thinks so".

A series of toughly-worded letters from Chaffetz and Cummings uncovered information in March that Flynn was paid more than $33,000 from RT, the Russian television network branded a propaganda outlet by US intelligence agencies. And in April, the committee's scrutiny of Flynn's contacts with government agencies about those payments prompted an inquiry by the Pentagon's inspector general. Chaffetz was the first to announce Comey reopened the inquiry into Clinton's emails days before the 2016 election.

The committee's new emphasis comes as Chaffetz's political profile may be waning.

NAFTA renegotiation process begins as letter sent to Congress
It says they hope to clear up disputes about sugar with Mexico and lumber with Canada before the talks begin. Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch, called it "markedly vague".

Russo said it was an example of McConnell trusting a traditionally bipartisan committee to do its work. And he directed a House oversight inquiry into Clinton's email practices and use of a private computer server.

Since Trump's decision to fire Comey last week, a number of politicians and left-wing commentators have compared it to the 1972 Watergate scandal that led to Richard Nixon's resignation. "Why is he not doing the same here?" he asked.

McCain and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, told Erdogan in a letter they sent Thursday that the "actions of your staff violate the constitutional protections of freedom of the press and freedom of assembly enjoyed by all Americans".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Trump had not passed on any secrets to Lavrov. "Instead, he appears to have minimized any oversight whatsoever", Cummings said.

The committee gave McCabe until Wednesday, May 24, to fulfill the request. What was Trump's tone?

"There's clearly a lot of politics being played", Ryan said.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said after an all-senators briefing from Rosenstein that the deputy attorney general already knew Comey would be fired before he wrote a memo that the Trump administration initially used as justification for ousting the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief. 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. The White House said the memo's portrayal of the conversation was "not accurate".

For example, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the border-adjusted tax "probably wouldn't pass the Senate".
