Senate Russia investigators ask Comey to testify, seek documents

The committee said Wednesday that it is also asking Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to give the committee any notes that Comey might have made regarding discussions he had with White House or Justice Department officials about Russia's efforts to influence the election.

The Senate intelligence committee wants former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to appear before the panel in both open and closed sessions.

President Donald Trump asked the former FBI director, James Comey, to let former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn off the hook in an investigation into his Russian contacts, reports quoting a memo prepared by Mr. Comey said, pushing the 45th presidency into a potentially tenure-threatening crisis. A bombshell story out the New York Times on Tuesday even leveled the allegation that Trump suggested to former FBI Director James Comey that the lawman "consider putting reporters in prison".

"I was in the Nixon administration as you know and I thought after watching the Clinton impeachment I thought I'd never see another one", David Gergen said on CNN Tuesday night.

The Congressman said that his call for impeachment is a position of conscience for him and asked the American people to speak up. The White House said the memo was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal" of the conversation.

Asked whom he trusts if it's Comey's word against the president's word, Amash said, "I think it's pretty clear that I have more confidence in Director Comey".

National Security Advisor HR McMaster said that "at no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly". "There are a lot of unanswered questions", Ryan said.

The Senate intelligence committee first requested from the Federal Bureau of Investigation copies of his memos, said the panel's top Democrat, Sen. A section of opinion makers argues that the President's behaviour constitutes obstruction of justice and he must be impeached.

"It is obvious - there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

Thus far, the White House and Mr Trump's Twitter account have continued to take the stance that Mr Trump did not share any classified information.

Speaking at a joint news conference with the visiting Italian prime minister on Wednesday, Putin said he had "no other explanation" as to why Trump came under attack other than "political schizophrenia".
