U.S. intel chief declines comment on any Trump request about Russian Federation

U.S. intel chief declines comment on any Trump request about Russian Federation

The Post reported that Trump asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers to publicly deny there was any such nefarious ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Sen. John McCain said Sunday that he was "almost speechless" over reports that President Donald Trump told Russian officials that former FBI Director James Comey was "a real nut job".

During a March 20 House Intelligence hearing featuring then-FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers, Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democrat from California, invoked Caputo's name as part of a "tarantula web" of links to Russian Federation. Remember that last week the NY Times reported Trump had placed a call directly to Director Comey asking him to help put out the word that Trump was not under investigation.

White House officials say Comey's testimony about the scope of the FBI investigation upset Trump, who has dismissed the FBI and congressional investigations as a "witch hunt". Comey memorialized that conversation, and others he had with the president, in memos he wrote afterward, two sources close to the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director confirmed to NPR. According to one of his close friends, Comey was "disgusted" by what he saw as Trump's attempts to compromise him, as the FBI Director has traditionally enjoyed a wide degree of autonomy from the White House.

And White House officials asked for help from the two top intelligence officials to pressure Comey to close the Russian Federation probe. The investigation is now in the hands of an independent investigator: Robert Mueller, former FBI director, is leading the probe as special counselor.

Lawmakers on Monday evening seemed resigned to yet another bombshell report suggesting President Donald Trump attempted to interfere with a federal investigation aimed at, in part, determining whether there was collusion between his campaign and the Russian Federation government.

"If any president tries to impede an investigation - any president, no matter who it is - by interfering with the FBI, yes, that would be problematic". The President denied last week that he ever made such a suggestion to Comey.

The Washington Post first reported the story Monday evening, citing current and former officials.

Activist Ebtasam Alsaegh, from the neighbouring village of Bani Jamra, told Reuters she could hear police firing birdshot. It said it was no coincidence it occurred two days after a "convivial" meeting between Trump and King Hamad .

"Comey is actually going to meet with Bob Mueller, who was appointed last week as a special counsel in this Russian Federation investigation, to determine what he can and can't say in that public testimony", CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju reported.

On the same program, Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House panel, called on Chaffetz to subpoena the White House for documents related to the committee's probe into Comey's firing. If that does not happen, the Senate should start a special investigation into the matter.

In several cases, the president has publicly made statements that point to willful interference into the investigation. If this story is true then Comey pushed back and told Trump to make requests through proper channels at the DOJ.

"Legitimate, credible oversight of the White House is nearly non-existent across the entire House of Representatives".
