House committee chair asks FBI to turn over all Trump-Comey documents

House committee chair asks FBI to turn over all Trump-Comey documents

The tension seems to be increasing within the Trump administration especially since the firing of James Comey set odd events in motion as well as rumors of other possible terminations.

On Tuesday, the New York Times revealed contents of a bombshell memo by former FBI Director James Comey regarding his conversations with President Trump.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, chief of staff Reince Priebus, Trump's director of legislative affairs Marc Short and Energy Secretary Rick Perry are also in attendance, a source told CNN.

"The memo was part of a paper trail Mr Comey created documenting what he perceived as the President's improper efforts to influence an ongoing investigation", the Times reports. But despite this criticism, McMaster has even defended Trump when he shared sensitive material and classified intelligence with the visiting Russian officials. He said that sharing this information with foreign officials was "wholly appropriate".

"The president in no way undermined sources or methods in the course of this conversation."

In a statement, Israel's ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, said the partnership between the U.S and Israel was solid. These representatives from the Russian government were joined by Trump, McMaster, Rex Tillerson, and McMaster's No. 2, Dina Powell.

One of Donald Trump's deepest laments about modern America is that it doesn't win wars anymore.

Trump Suggests JCC Bomb Threats, Anti-Semitic... The White House on Tuesday defended President Donald Trump's disclosur.

In an interview with CBS News' Nancy Cordes, Schiff said there is "mounting concern" about how the Trump administration "appears to be interfering with the Russian Federation investigation". This latest rush of self-inflicted wounds - the kind that defines this administration - began soon after Trump finally had some good news, getting Trumpcare out of the House and onto the Senate.

Moscow's top diplomat, Lavrov represents Russian foreign policies that are often sharply at odds with US aims in Syria and Europe. At best, President Trump has committed a grave abuse of executive power. He included specific details.

"I hope you can let this go", Comey wrote, quoting Trump in the document, which CNN has not viewed but which was described by the sources.

Trump on May 9 fired Comey, who led the FBI investigation into the ties between Russian officials and Trump's presidential campaign, an issue that Congress also addresses.

"I think we've seen this movie before", the Arizona Republican said at a dinner to receive the International Republican Institute's Freedom Award.

"He says there's a difference between "'Hey, Flynn's a good guy, it would be nice if you cut him a break" as opposed to "I'm the president.

India to tour West Indies right after Champions Trophy
The ICC normally does not have a say on bilateral series as it is a bi-partite agreement between the two cricket boards. India s cricket board dropped a $42 million damages claim against the West Indies over an abandoned tour in 2014.

Comey didn't let it go.

" "Close it down" is an instruction to stop investigating President Trump's campaign".

Controversy over Russian Federation has also laid bare sharp divisions between the White House and US intelligence agencies, which concluded in January that Russian Federation had tried to influence the election in Trump's favor.

"For the president to tell the FBI to end a potential criminal investigation, that's obstruction of justice", said Erwin Chereminsky, a constitutional law professor and dean of University of California, Irvine School of Law. "This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey", the statement added.

The White House has grown suspicious about the volume and timing of the seemingly never-ending stream of leaks about the president, said one senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to reflect on the feeling inside the West Wing. Trump didn't just fire Comey.

Third, even his own party is anxious about the impact Trump may have on the country and the electoral fortunes of the Republicans; many are making frenetic efforts to distance themselves from his decisions.

"Obviously, they're in a downward spiral right now", Corker said of the White House.
