Trump, dogged by questions at home, makes first trip abroad

It also asked the White House to provide records of interactions with Comey, including those "relating to the FBI's investigation of alleged ties between President Trump's associates and Russian Federation, or the Clinton email investigation, including all audio recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, or memoranda", according to a statement.

Meantime, leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee are asking the FBI to turn over memos prepared by Comey regarding communications he had with the White House or Justice Department about the FBI's Russian Federation investigations, Politico reported.

Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller just over a week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

"The entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign - but I can always speak for myself - and the Russians".

"I think in the light of day in a public setting he should be able to tell us about the materials, if they're there, and I question whether or not they're actually there", Chaffetz said.

"I don't think I'm in a position to give any advice to President Trump".

Mr Trump did have the legal authority to fire Mr Comey, but there is a legal precedent for otherwise lawful acts to be considered an obstruction of justice if done with corrupt intentions, the New York Times reported.

"We look forward to getting this whole situation behind us so that, when we go for the jobs, when we go for the strong military, when we go for all of the things that we've been pushing so hard and so successfully, including health care", he said.

United States reviews Iran nuclear programme, implements missile sanctions
Iran agreed under the 2015 agreement to curtail its nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief that had crippled its economy.

Reports of his vast collection of notes, files and records kept during his tenure with President Donald Trump (and probably with President Barack Obama), seem to indicate that Comey planned to insulate himself with a wealth of information in the event he was ever ousted or blamed for a mis-step.

But Chaffetz added he still needed to connect with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who appears to have a new phone number. It is the kind of conversation that seems completely in character for Trump, who, over the course of the campaign and now in office, has betrayed no - zero - understanding of the necessary separation of the president and his Justice Department when it comes to making independent judgments about political matters and political opponents. John McCain of Arizona, the Republican chairman of the Armed Services Committee, says it's a "scandal" of Watergate proportions, and the only way to end it is to get out the full truth.

"We've made it very clear", Spicer said.

Trump, including one in which the president allegedly asked him to drop a probe of Flynn.

"Director Comey was very unpopular with most people", Mr Trump claimed, adding that he thought his firing would be a "bipartisan decision".

In a pair of morning tweets and at a later news conference, Trump described calls for his impeachment as "ridiculous" and said he had done nothing to warrant criminal charges.

The White House on Tuesday said the report was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey".
