Trump's mishandling of intelligence secrets could affect cooperation over N. Korea: congressman

Galeno Paniagua | 20 May, 2017, 06:13

Surrounded by multiplying questions, President Donald Trump complained Wednesday that "no politician in history" has been treated worse.

Shortly after the meeting, Comey wrote the memo that is the subject of Chaffetz's subpoena. Putin did not specify how, exactly, he might have come to have an exact transcript of the meeting.

The White House has played down the importance and secrecy of the information Trump gave to the Russians, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement. Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. Yet US allies and some members of Congress have expressed alarm.

The senators asked McGahn to provide the committee with "all White House records memorializing interactions with Mr. Comey relating to the FBI's investigation of alleged ties between President Trump's associates and Russian Federation, or the Clinton email investigation, including all audio recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, and memoranda".

In his remarks in Sochi, Putin dismissed outrage over Trump's reported disclosures as an effort by USA politicians to whip up "anti-Russian sentiment".

Trump himself hasn't directly addressed the latest allegations that he pressured Comey to drop the Flynn investigation. But the swirling questions about his conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the US Coast Guard Academy in CT that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly". "And the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face".

Some have alleged that the president fired Comey in order to impede the FBI's investigation into Russia's alleged efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

U.S. President Donald Trump's sharing of highly classified intelligence with Russian Federation could cause a problem with efforts to seek cooperation from allies in dealing with North Korea, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday.

King, who generally votes with the Democrats, said, "We don't want to get into the situation where we're charging our president based on any kind of political considerations".

John McCain, a senior Republican senator, compared the unfolding crisis with the scandal that brought down Richard Nixon. In the messages, Comey reportedly acknowledged that he approved most of the Office of Legal Counsel opinions authorizing the techniques, but he said he'd urged then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to advise the White House to abandon the harshest methods. While that alone raised many, many eyebrows, the allegation that Trump pressured Comey to ease up on Flynn is, as the New York Times described it, "the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump's associates and Russian Federation".

Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down the federal investigation into since-ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, The New York Times reported Tuesday evening.

The White House vigorously denied it all.

When asked about the issue, Representative Justin Amash, of MI, said interfering in an FBI investigation into Mr Flynn could be the basis of such a case "if the allegations are true". Mr Flynn was forced to step down form his post in February after it was revealed that he had misrepresented a conversation he had with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.

The intensifying drama comes as Trump is set to embark Friday on his first foreign trip, which had been optimistically viewed by some aides as an opportunity to reset an administration floundering under an inexperienced president.

"Chairman Burr and I have sent out a request for Director Comey to testify before the Intelligence Committee both in closed and open", Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) told reporters Wednesday afternoon.

"On its face, this is a textbook prima facie case of an attempt to obstruct justice", concluded Sen.
