Trump decries special prosecutor probing Russian Federation 'links'

Galeno Paniagua | 20 Мая, 2017, 04:41

In his most risky and irresponsible act so far, Trump shared highly classified information with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador to the US, who visited the White House last week. According to the story, the president told Comey that he should consider putting reporters in prison for publishing classified information.

"If in fact what was in the memo is true, it's very concerning and we need to get to the bottom of that", Kinzinger said on CNN.

President Donald Trump declared himself the victim of the "greatest witch hunt" in American political history Thursday and slapped down accusations he tried to quash a probe into collusion between his campaign team and Russian Federation.

Asked whether the U.S. had reached out to the ally that provided the information, he replied: "I'm not going to comment on specifically where it came from".

Ryan said that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has "appropriately" requested the Comey memo. "What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command". Now he's being accused of trying to kill an FBI investigation.

Some legal analysts have said Trump's possible pressure on Comey to end the Flynn probe and his decision to fire the FBI chief in the midst of the agency's investigation of the Russian Federation matter could amount to obstruction of justice, a charge that could be invoked in any attempt to impeach Trump and remove him from office. Trump's attorney general had to recuse himself from the investigation because he failed to disclose his meetings with Russian officials.

A Comey associate says Comey wrote a memo after his encounter with the president, and congressional committees investigating the Russian Federation ties have requested to see the memo and other related documentation.

According to an official familiar with details of last Wednesday's White House meeting, Trump bragged to the Russians that "I get great intel".

Lashing out after a high-powered special counsel was appointed to investigate events around the 2016 election, Trump denied he ever plotted with the Kremlin to win the White House.

We may be hearing publicly from recently fired FBI Director James Comey sooner rather than later.

Many Republicans agree that they should take a wait-and-see approach.

Ryan declined to wade into whether Trump obstructed justice - a crime under United States law.

Under current U.S. law, the president has the power to declassify information as he or she sees fit.

Representative Barbara Comstock of Virginia, whose district is home to large numbers of Federal Bureau of Investigation and CIA employees, said Trump's disclosure of classified intelligence to the Russians is "highly troubling". He said he wants to follow the facts wherever they may lead. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said panel members were also inviting Comey to testify at an undetermined date.

If the Trump administration deemed it appropriate, Putin said Russian Federation could hand over a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov to USA lawmakers to reassure them that no secrets were revealed. No Republicans, Baier said, were willing to go on camera and defend their president.

In a pair of morning Twitter posts and at a later news conference, the Republican president described urgings by some on the left for his impeachment as "ridiculous" and said he had done nothing to warrant criminal charges.

Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT, a member of the Judiciary Committee, called the memo as reported "powerful evidence of obstruction of justice".

For Republicans who had repeated the party line, Trump's contradiction was at best an embarrassment.
