Trump Knew Flynn Was Under Investigation for Turkey Lobbying, Still Hired Him

"We need an independent special prosecutor to investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 election and connections to the Trump campaign and Administration". But before everyone starts using the "I" word, let's all remember that the Republicans control Congress.

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.

There was also Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., who voted against the dog's-breakfast health-care bill, who put out a statement when Comey was sacked, which read in part: "I can't defend or explain tonight's actions or timing of the firing of FBI Director James Comey".

Also Tuesday, in an extraordinary turn of events, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions with the diplomats.

The White House has denied reports that Trump pressed Comey to drop an investigation into Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Matthew Miller, who served as the DOJ's Director of the Office of Public Affairs under former Attorney General Eric Holder, suggested that Comey may have been building an obstruction of justice case against the president, in an interview with the Washington Post.

Flynn was sacked just 24 days into his job, but he time with the White House has had a lingering impact. But GOP lawmakers have grown increasingly anxious since Trump fired Comey, who had been leading the bureau's probe - and after Comey associates said he had notes from a meeting in which Trump asked him to shut down the investigation into Flynn's Russian Federation ties. "He felt the White House should have a clear separation from the FBI about ongoing investigations - there should never be any intimation that the President or the White House staff was leaning in and trying to influence live investigations by the FBI", the source said. "He was just saying [to Comey, ] 'It would be great if you gave him a break, '" said Peter Zeidenberg, a Washington attorney and former federal prosecutor.

US media have reported that during his May 10 meeting with Lavrov, Trump disclosed highly classified information received from a USA ally - reportedly Israel - about a planned operation by the extremist group Islamic State.

"Truly I get the impression that many USA media are working in this vein".

"It's a problem in terms of understanding the threat from ISIS to our aviation, but it's also a problem if we're getting insights from other allies about what North Korea's doing and they have some concern about whether we're sharing it with countries that may have a very different interest than themselves", he said.

President Trump is not above the law.

At a news conference on Wednesday, Ho us e Speaker Paul Ryan urged his colleagues to "seize this moment" to pass tax reform.

The allegation stems from a memo written by Comey and seen by a source familiar with the contents of the memo. He said Comey would appear relatively soon.
