'What the Hell!': The View Reacts to Comey's Alleged Memo About Trump

'What the Hell!': The View Reacts to Comey's Alleged Memo About Trump

Chaffetz's letter comes just hours after the disclosure that Comey drafted a memo that detailed how Trump had asked him to shut down the Flynn investigation.

Ryan declined to call for a special prosecutor in remarks to reporters earlier in the day and warned against "rushing to judgment".

The key figure in any inquiry will be Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chair of the House Oversight & Government Reform. But other legal experts said investigators would consider a series of interactions among the president, the FBI and the Justice Department about the Flynn investigation and a broader counterintelligence probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Senate intelligence committee first requested from the Federal Bureau of Investigation copies of his memos, said the panel's top Democrat, Sen.

In a short statement, Mueller says, "I accept this responsibility and will discharge it to the best of my ability".

During a press briefing aboard Air Force One, Spicer was asked to respond to the news that former FBI Director James Comey had written memos accusing Trump of trying to derail an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. He then said he'd be willing to provide transcripts of the exchange his officials had with the president to Congress, but only if Trump and his administration personally requested the documents be sent over.

Here's what the committees are seeking and how it will affect ongoing investigations into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. Comey had been overseeing investigations into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation to tilt the 2016 election in his favor.

Asked what he thinks of Trump presidency, Putin said it's up to the American people to judge but his performance can only be rated "only when he's allowed to work at full capacity", implying that someone is hampering Trump's efforts.

Some Republicans are voicing support for President Donald Trump following a report that the president asked James Comey to stop an FBI investigation.

It also asked the White House to provide records of interactions with Comey, including those "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, or memoranda", according to a statement.

She adds that "a special prosecutor is the first step, but it can not be the last".

That's a long way from backing Democrats' call for an independent bipartisan select committee.

"With respect to the highly politicized Russian Federation investigation, I would like to see it independently investigated", Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., one of three California Republicans who have called for an independent probe. "Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted".

Even some Republicans from safer districts are now calling for a special prosecutor, like Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), whose suburban Chicago district has not been held by a Democrat since the 1990s.

"I was in the Nixon administration, as you know, and I thought after watching the Clinton impeachment I'd never see another one", Gergen told host Anderson Cooper.

In the 1990s, Democrats insisted that independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated former President Bill Clinton, overstepped his authority.
