Trump denies that he requested Comey end investigation into Flynn

Trump denies that he requested Comey end investigation into Flynn

"I hope you can let this go", Trump told Comey, according to a bombshell report published Tuesday in The New York Times detailing the memo the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director wrote after meeting Trump.

"I hope you can let this go", Mr Trump reportedly told Mr Comey. Spicer insisted that Comey's description of the meeting was inaccurate, and he declined to expand on the White House's previous denial of the memo.

Another congressional panel, the House Oversight Committee, has also demanded information about the Comey memo.

Chaffetz told Pelley he wants the hearing with Comey to do the hearing "as publicly as we possibly can".

"This offense has occurred before our very eyes", he said, describing Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who led an investigation of Trump associates' ties to Russian intelligence.

And earlier in the day, during a private lunch of television anchors at the White House, Trump said he believes the decision to appoint a special counsel "hurts our country terribly" and called it "a pure excuse for the Democrats having lost an election".

"When I chose to just do it I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, '" Mr Trump told NBC's Lester Holt. "At worst, he has obstructed justice". "I'm not going to get any further comment on that". "If an investigation comes out and shows that he crossed that line, sure".

Comey had been leading the FBI investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials until Trump fired him last week.

Two Republicans had also backed the move, they said.

In this May 8 photo, then-FBI Director James Comey speaks to the Anti-Defamation League National Leadership Summit in Washington. "The American people can make up their own minds, and the chips can fall where they may". And no US president has ever been impeached and removed from office.

The White House said it was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr Comey".

Putin, who still hopes Moscow can fix battered ties with the United States despite a deepening political scandal in the United States related to Trump's purported Russian Federation ties, said Moscow had rated Lavrov's meeting with Trump highly.

"So, if you're talking about that, I see no secret here".

A report by CNN states that Vladimir Putin is willing to release a copy of the transcript from the meeting between Trump and Lavrov in order to put a stop to the claims.
