Comey agrees to testify in open hearing before Senate Intelligence Committee

Comey agrees to testify in open hearing before Senate Intelligence Committee

Mr Trump's terse denial followed reports by Reuters and other media about a memo written by Mr Comey alleging that Mr Trump made the request to close down the investigation into Mr Michael Flynn and Russian Federation in February.

Ousted FBI director James Comey "was insane", President Trump told Russian officials this month, adding that firing him had lifted a "great pressure", according to a written summary of the Oval Office meeting.

On May 19, the New York Times reported that Trump told Russian envoys at the White House the day after Comey's firing that he thought Comey was a "nut job". The newspaper also reported that the president had expressed his wishes that Comey could let go of the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. After Comey's firing, Trump himself has interviewed several potential nominees.

Many of those committees have asked Comey to testify, and late Friday, leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Comey will appear before the panel publicly sometime after Memorial Day.

"Oh, there's Jim", Trump said. Stay tuned on this.

Two more bombshell reports published Friday afternoon delivered a one-two punch to the Trump White House regarding the investigation into its potential ties to Russian Federation, capping off a week where each day dealt a fresh blockbuster blow to the administration. But ultimately, Mueller is answerable to the Justice Department. A third official characterized Trump's remarks similarly to the Times, suggesting that Trump was trying to use a negotiating tactic to wring concessions out of Russian Federation.

Except Rosenstein's reputation may have taken a hit in all this.

Ex-FBI boss James Comey, who was sacked by Donald Trump, has agreed to testify publicly before the Senate Intelligence Committee. And what does writing the memo anyway say about Rosenstein's allegiances?

Capitol Hill hasn't come to any consensus about whether to give Rosenstein the benefit of the doubt.

"I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country", Trump said at a luncheon with a group of television news anchors.

"He said, 'That is Bob Mueller's purview, ' and that was puzzling to a lot of us", said Himes, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.

"We're a nation of laws", was all Sen. But he added: "I haven't lost my confidence in the president to be our president, I just haven't".

Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the committee chairman, said in a written statement, according to NPR. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), in May. It was later discovered that the Trump administration knew about Mr Flynn's connections to Russia - which also include payments for a speech to the Russian state supported news organisation RT - even before bringing him into the White House.

Legal experts said the ethics rule can be waived by the Justice Department, which appointed Mueller.

"I was very pleased, certainly, with the selection of Mr. Mueller", Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland told reporters after the House briefing.

Congress just has yet to define it.

Trump fired Comey on May 9, saying that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in turmoil under "showboat" Director Comey.
