Chaffetz sets hearing with Comey - but can't reach him

Chaffetz sets hearing with Comey - but can't reach him

Mark Warner, D-Virginia, sent a letter Wednesday asking Comey to testify before the committee in both open and closed sessions.

On Tuesday, The Post and others reported that Comey kept detailed notes of his conversations with President Trump.

Mr Comey was abruptly fired last week, in a move that shocked Washington.

'Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media, ' he said.

Late on Wednesday the Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation into questions of Russian collusion.

The top members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have invited former FBI Director James Comey to testify publicly.

Despite this warning, which came about a month after the Justice Department notified Mr. Flynn of the inquiry, Mr. Trump made Mr. Flynn his national security adviser. "Zero", he said during the joint news conference at the White House.

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'.

"There is a new story and a new headline every day", said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who sits on the Oversight Committee.

The Wisconsin Republican says in a written statement that he has wanted investigations that "follow the facts wherever they lead".

Trump did end up calling out Comey.

It asked acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to hand over any notes Comey has of conversations between the White House and Justice Department officials about the Russian Federation probe.

Also on Tuesday, a new poll shows almost half of US voters (48 percent) said they would support Trump's impeachment, while only 41 percent would oppose such charges.

Reuters reports that after the election, Flynn, who was forced to resign for misleading officials about the nature of his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak, was trying to establish a "back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the US national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations".
