Donald Trump told Michael Flynn to "stay strong" amid growing scandal

19 May 2017

As stock markets across the world fell in response to the latest crisis to engulf the leader of the world's largest economy, the White House struggled to contain the fallout from a New York Times report that Mr Trump tried to sway an FBI investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, on Wednesday said the committee planned to invite Comey to testify during a public hearing next week.

If Trump does have taped conversations with Comey, they may well end up as part of an investigation into whether he fired Comey because he wouldn't end the Russia-related investigations.

On Tuesday, the House intelligence committee also requested similar documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
