Bush, Obama Lawyers Slam Trump's Possible Meddling In FBI Russia Probe

Bush, Obama Lawyers Slam Trump's Possible Meddling In FBI Russia Probe

Al Green called for the impeachment of President Trump on the House floor on the grounds of "obstruction of justice." Rep.

"It does raise a lot of questions and I think, like most American and most Wisconsinites, I just want the truth". I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.

Mossad?s former chief further added that the revelation may be a significant blow to Israel's intelligence about ISIS but White House insisted that Trump did not compromised national security by sharing information with Russian officials.

A source close to Comey confirmed to ABC News that the former FBI director, who was sacked last week, was asked by Trump in February to end the investigation into Flynn's actions, according to a memo Comey wrote about his conversation with the president.

Chaffetz has demanded that the Federal Bureau of Investigation turn over Comey's memos. Later, though, Trump told NBC News that he would have fired Comey "regardless" and was thinking of the "Russia thing" when he did so.

Putin said - if the White House agreed - that he would share his records of a meeting Trump had last week with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergei Kislyak in which it was reported Trump blurted out sensitive information given to the White House by Israeli intelligence.

Putin's comments were made in response to USA media reports Monday that Trump disclosed classified data to Mr. Lavrov during the meeting regarding a terrorist threat to civil aviation, involving bombs hidden in laptop computers.

The mixed messages come as rumors have swirled about a possible shake-up of White House communications staff. "They are shaking up their internal politics while using anti-Russian slogans".

Russia has repeatedly said that Trump's opponents are trying to damage him and Moscow by making what it says are false accusations about the billionaire president and the Russian government which initially had high hopes of a rapprochement.

"Perhaps Putin thought that he could make a constructive step, maybe help Trump in this predicament", says Alexei Mukhin, director of the independent Center for Political Information in Moscow.

While the Kremlin tries to advance what Russian observers say are honest efforts to establish normal dialogue with a new USA president, it is taken in Washington to be further evidence of political collusion between Mr. Trump and Russia.

Mueller was credited with transforming the FBI, putting more resources into counterterrorism investigations and improving its cooperation with other USA government agencies.

Another day, another bombshell for the beleaguered Trump administration.

Speaking at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Putin quipped that Lavrov was remiss for not passing on what he made clear he believed were non-existent secrets. When that ended, Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey, and he eventually turned the conversation to Flynn. The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times.
