Limbaugh: Where Are Comey's Memos From Meetings With Obama?

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

The radio host was reacting to the report from the New York Times, which cited memos written by Comey claiming President Trump pressured him to end the investigation into Michael Flynn. "Our job is to be responsible, sober and focus only on gathering the facts".

We discovered on Tuesday that, according to the former FBI director, President Trump back in February asked James Comey to bury the federal investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Even by Trump administration standards it's been a chaotic week or so.

Comey was sacked last week as the FBI investigates whether Trump's presidential campaign associates had colluded with Russian Federation to influence the outcome in his behalf.

Houston Congressman Al Green called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the floor of Congress Wednesday morning.

Legal blog Lawfare says that as President, Mr Trump is within his rights to disclose classified intelligence.

Reporters at the White House on Monday night reported hearing heated arguments behind closed doors as senior staff went into damage-control mode once more. What's more, many worry that the dumpster fire will suck oxygen out of Congress' ambitious legislative agenda.

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said: "It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House".

The committee's letter to the White House noted Trump's tweets last week suggesting he had "tapes" of his conversations with Comey and included audio recordings in its request for "all White House records memorializing interactions with Mr. Comey 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, and memoranda".

"I spoke to him (Lavrov) today", a smiling Putin told a news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi.

Comey's much-anticipated return to Capitol Hill after his firing last week will provide a venue for the former prosecutor to describe the events leading up to his firing.

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said he would ask Comey for additional material as part of that panel's investigation.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee invited Comey to testify next Wednesday.

Flynn's resignation came hours after it was reported that the Justice Department had warned the White House weeks earlier that Flynn could be vulnerable to blackmail for contacts with Kislyak before Trump took office on Jan 20. At best, President Trump has committed a grave abuse of executive power. A growing list of GOP lawmakers - including Sen. The Democrats' narrow interest lies in having President Trump hang around as close to the 2018 midterm elections as possible.

Curbelo last week was one of the first Republicans to call for a congressional Select Committee to investigate Comey's firing and the fallout from alleged Russian meddling in last year's election. The Senate Intelligence Committee also wants Comey to testify both publicly and in private.

Meanwhile, they are happy to parrot Trump's talking points that the self-inflicted scandals somehow represent a media conspiracy.

"It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president". That means a Republican Party will not investigate a Republican president and the Democrats won't investigate a Democratic president.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a Senate intelligence committee member, said on CNN's "New Day" she did not support a special prosecutor for the investigation. First, a majority of the House of Representatives would have to vote in favor of impeachment.

The Constitution states that "The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors".

"I think we're in impeachment territory".
