House committee sets hearing to investigate if Trump interfered in Federal Bureau of Investigation probe

House committee sets hearing to investigate if Trump interfered in Federal Bureau of Investigation probe

Russian President Vladimir Putin's offer to provide a transcript of a controversial private Oval Office meeting between President Trump and two Russian diplomats has further fueled allegations that the White House has had improper dealings with Moscow, a US adversary.

Prices of bonds, regarded as a safe haven in times of market turbulence, rallied.

Representative Adam Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican, went further. In it, Comey said the president asked him to abandon the Flynn investigation, according to a person who was given a copy of the memo and spoke on condition of anonymity.

That was two days after Rosenstein named Mueller as a special counsel to investigate possible coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election. "But everybody in this country gets a fair trial, including the president or anyone else". I'm gobsmacked. Please recall that, like, just a few days ago, the White House was insisting that Comey's dismissal was about his handling of the Clinton email matter. That came hours after The New York Times reported on a memo authored by Comey that said Trump asked the then-FBI director end his investigation into Flynn.

"The American people deserve to know the truth", she said, adding it is imperative to restore the public's trust.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said he's not putting much stock in Putin's credibility.

He told CNN on Wednesday, "I think we are in the position now where it's time for an independent commission or a special prosecutor or whatever".

Trump said that "adversity makes you stronger", adding that things are not always fair, but "you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight".

The Kremlin has ridiculed the flap in the USA over allegations of possible collusion between members of Trump's campaign during his run for the White House and the president's seemingly cozy relations with Putin.

The police ended their round-the-clock guard outside the embassy in October 2015, amid public criticism of the cost. Samuelson said Sweden's judicial system "spoiled and wasted five, six years of his life. but he is happy today".

Also, the House oversight committee set a May 24 hearing to investigate if Trump interfered in the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe and has asked Comey to testify.

Here's a little recap: The Washington Post broke a story saying Trump disclosed highly classified information on ISIS to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister during a closed-door meeting.

"At best, President Trump has committed a grave abuse of executive power", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said in a statement.

Reuters reported that a Kremlin aide later told reporters that Moscow had a written record of the conversation and not an audio recording.

Most Republicans have said the current Federal Bureau of Investigation probe and investigations in the Republican-led Congress into the Russian Federation matter are sufficient. "We need the facts", Ryan said. "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president". But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House.

"I'm sure we're going to go on to hear from Mr Comey about why, if this happened as he allegedly describes, why didn't he take action at the time? So there are a lot of unanswered questions".

The Times cited notes from a May 10 Oval Office meeting, the day after Trump fired Comey.

Putin also slammed critics who spread allegations about Trump's ties with Russian Federation. Then another political bombshell exploded Tuesday night.

Shortly after Warner's comments, the committee released a statement from him and chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, reiterating their request for Comey to testify and to acting director Andrew McCabe to turn over documents "regarding any communications he may have had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to investigations into Russia's efforts".
