Trump denies collusion with Russian Federation but says he 'speaks for himself'

In one post, he linked to a Wall Street Journal article headlined, "U.S".

Trump removed Comey in the middle of a Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into alleged Russian interference in the the 2016 US presidential election, and possible ties between Trump's campaign and Russia.

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 White House denied the report, saying it was 'not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr Comey'.

Chaffetz, who has been criticized by committee Democrats for not taking an aggressive investigative stance toward the Trump administration, wrote the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday seeking copies of 'any and all documentation the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey kept of his communications with President Donald Trump'. Comey said he replied that "I agree he is a good guy" but said nothing to Trump about limiting the investigation. Asked if he trusted Comey or Trump, Amash replied: "I think it's pretty clear I have confidence in Director Comey". And no USA president has ever been impeached and removed from office.

Mark Warner, as well as asking Comey to testify. The hearing is expected to looking specifically at Trump's influence on the investigation into Trump, his allies and their connections to Russian Federation.

Trump would have "maybe 10 mins" if North Korea attacked
And despite United Nations' economic sanctions against a country that has always been shrouded in secrecy, Kim remains undaunted. South Korea's Defense Ministry said more analysis was needed to verify the North's claim on the rocket's technological features.

If Trump had tried and failed to persuade Comey to discontinue the Flynn inquiry, the firing becomes all the more suspicious. Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. The FBI is investigating to determine whether Trump or his associates colluded with Russian Federation, although no evidence to support the allegation has surfaced. "We need to get those notes, if they exist, that Director Comey took of this conversation", Schiff told ABC on Wednesday. The Illinois senator said he wants to see Comey's memos and hear his testimony in public.

Adam Schiff, the highest-ranked Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said this intervention by Mr Trump, if confirmed, amounted to "interference or obstruction of the investigation".

The President was responding to multiple reports that Comey wrote a memo detailing a conversation in which Trump asked him to "let this go" in regard to Flynn.

The Justice Department must appoint a special prosecutor charged with determining whether any laws were broken.

This is the latest effort in a newly invigorated push from congressional Republicans to investigate the scandal-plagued White House.
