FBI declines to provide Comey memos to Congress

FBI declines to provide Comey memos to Congress

Comey memos "going to be turned over" Chaffetz: Congress should provide oversight on special counsel probe Cummings: "There is an air of deception" in White House MORE (R-Utah) on Wednesday said Congress must provide oversight on the special counsel assigned to the Russian Federation investigation.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the House oversight committee asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to turn over more documents about former director James Comey's interactions with the White House and Justice Department, including material dating back almost four years to the Obama administration.

The FBI is looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible connections between Russia and the Trump campaign.

In a responding letter, Chaffetz said he still wanted any related documents that would be outside the scope of the special counsel's investigation, and a list of documents found to be within the scope of the probe, by June 8.

The New York Times, earlier this month, had reported that one of Comey's memos entailing his conversation with Trump stated that the US President had once asked the former FBI chief to drop the current investigations of Russia's links with Trump administration.

Those documents include all memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings referring or relating to any communication between Comey and any White House employee, including the president and the vice president, ranging back to Comey's first day in September 2013, as well as between Comey and the attorney general or deputy attorney general.

Chaffetz, R-Utah, previously requested Comey's recent memos about his private contacts with Trump.

Assistant FBI Director Gregory Brower told Chaffetz on Thursday the agency is evaluating his request and will update him as soon as possible.

Chaffetz has already responded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation letter.

Chaffetz further requests that the FBI identify all responsive documents, regardless of whether the document is within the scope of the special counsel's investigation.

"(Comey) didn't cut it off saying he would never come, he just said he wanted to speak with Mr. Mueller before committing to any sort of public testimony", Chaffetz said.
