Trump asked Comey to end Flynn investigation

Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma is joining with Republican leaders who are urging President Donald Trump to avoid appointing a politician to replace fired FBI Director James Comey.

Comey declined an invitation to brief the Senate Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Tuesday, but is reportedly open to a public airing. Marco Rubio (R-FL) also said that it's "inescapable" that Mr. Comey has to come back for more testimony on the existence of this memo.

In the Fox interview, Trump also denied reports that he had asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to him at a private dinner shortly after Trump was sworn in.

The Republican chairman of the House oversight committee says he plans to demand that the Justice Department turn over all memos written by former FBI Director James Comey concerning his past meetings with President Donald Trump.

Bharara said a special prosecutor must be "independent and uncompromised" and that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russian Federation probe because Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from it, must appoint one. The president and others have repeatedly pressed the FBI to focus more of its energy on pursuing leakers than on the Russian Federation investigation, these officials said. The president said he's confident his brother would be proud of his work in the White House. Some people under consideration include acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas, New York Appeals Court Judge Michael Garcia and former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher, according to a White House official. "It must be supplemented by a truly bipartisan investigation in Congress as well as a replacement FBI director who is apolitical and sensitive to the law-enforcement mission".

"If true, these memoranda raise questions as to whether the president attempted to influence or impede the FBI's investigation as it relates to Lt. Gen. Flynn", Chaffetz wrote. "I have my subpoena pen ready".

"I think there are a lot of Democrats who feel that way", Schumer said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Republicans control both chambers of the U.S. Congress.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, which along with the House Intelligence Committee is probing Russian interference in the 2016 elections, recently asked Flynn and other former Trump advisers to provide information about their activities.

From the question and answer, it is unclear whether McCabe was speaking only about Comey's firing not interfering with the Russian Federation investigations, or whether he was saying that there was no effort to impede in any Trump-related matter. The move by Chaffetz comes just hours after the disclosure that Comey wrote in a memo that Trump asked him to shut down a federal investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Since then, White House officials have steadfastly refused to say whether the president's conversations have been recorded.
