US Russia probe wants Comey recordings

US Russia probe wants Comey recordings

Coats and Rogers have so far refused to respond to Congress on whether they, at Trump's request, asked Comey to curtail the investigation of ousted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. A source familiar with the matter said Richman has been in touch with Senate judiciary through special counsel Bob Mueller's office, and that there will be movement after the weekend.

"And there would be nothing wrong with it if I did say it, according to everything that I've read today", Trump added, which didn't exactly help his case that he didn't say it.

They asked McGahn to inform the committee whether any White House recordings or memoranda of Comey's conversations with Trump exist, or have existed in the past.

Trump demurred when asked whether tapes of his talks with Comey actually exist.

London police name third attacker
The death toll from the London terror attack has risen to eight after Metropolitan police recovered a body from the Thames River. The three attackers were wearing fake suicide belts consisting of plastic water bottles wrapped in grey duct tape.

During his testimony Comey also said that he spoke with the president nine times, and that he thinks he created a written record of each conversation.

"We're going to make North Atlantic Treaty Organisation very strong", he said.

The investigation does not end with Comey's conversations, or the tapes, however.

Bob Inglis, a Republican former congressman who voted to impeach Bill Clinton in 1998, suggested Trump might be in particularly hot water.

Theresa May to seek permission to form government
It is believed that if the DUP agree to this proposal, the administration will be formed through an informal arrangement. May said she'll work with her "friends in the DUP in the "interests of the whole UK".

Following Thursday's hearing, Burr, the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, declined be drawn out when asked if he was more inclined to believe Comey or Trump.

In his testimony, Comey recalled that during a private White House dinner on January 27, the president asked him for "loyalty" and to lay off his former top aide Flynn - who is under investigation over his Russian Federation ties - imploring Comey to "let this go".

The US president stunned Europe's leaders at a summit in Brussels on May 25 when he failed to publicly back the now 29-member bloc's founding mutual defense guarantee, and instead castigated the allies for failing to pay their way. "I didn't say under oath".

Rendon, now in private practice at BakerHostetler, said she expects that, following Comey's testimony, "the investigation will expand to include possible obstruction of justice".
