House oversight panel calls for May 24 hearing with Comey

19 May 2017

"If the USA administration considers it possible, we are ready to provide a record of Lavrov's conversation with Trump" to USA lawmakers, Putin said at a press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. Elijah Cummings, top Democrat on a key House oversight panel, countered that Ryan and the Republicans had shown "zero, zero, zero appetite for any investigation of President Trump".

Over at the Democrats' Maginot Line, NPR, one writer proclaims that "Trump Impeachment Talk Grows from Conspiracy Theory To Mainstream". During a commencement address at the US Coast Guard Academy, Trump urged graduating cadets to follow his example and "fight, fight, fight. Things will work out just fine".

Many liberal political analysts believe they've found the man to unite the Democratic Party: Donald Trump. Especially by the media.

May 15-16, 2017: The White House defends Trump's disclosure of classified information to senior Russian officials as "wholly appropriate". "He is a good guy".

Comments by Trump & Rosenstein Further Confuse Decision to Fire Comey
King says, "I'm anxious with all special counsels because there's no control over them and they can abuse their power". Rosenstein has done the right thing", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Thursday on the Senate floor.

Striking a defiant stance, he added: "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams". Liberal intellectual and The View co-host Sunny Hostin couldn't contain her excitement at the thought of Comey writing down detailed accounts of his meetings with Trump on Wednesday's show.

"The president has been very clear, this is not an accurate representation", he said of Comey. "The President has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations".

The day after Comey's ouster, Trump received Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and its ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak, to whom he divulged highly classified intelligence, according to the Washington Post. Comey also said it made him feel "mildly nauseous" to think his actions in October might have influenced the election outcome.

The fact that the president apparently said he "hoped" Comey would end the Flynn investigation rather than more directly ordering it "makes for a weaker but still viable case", said Christopher Slobogin, a criminal law professor at Vanderbilt University Law School.

Jones attended the talks. "In light of the failures of the past cease-fire agreements, we have reason to be skeptical", he said. The Astana track produced a May 4 deal to create four "de-escalation" zones across some of Syria's bloodiest battlegrounds.

Another Republican outlier, SASC Chairman John McCain, of Arizona, has called for an independent congressional commission to conduct the Russian Federation investigation and is pushing for Comey to testify before Congress in order for the nation to move on. "The country is being tested in unprecedented ways".

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said simply, "It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House". The actual memos were delivered to Congress days later and inspired claims that Nixon had obstructed justice. "Our allies and partners must have the utmost confidence that sensitive information they share with us will not be disclosed", he tweeted.

The intelligence was originally gathered by Israel, the New York Times said, and pertained to an Islamic State plot to hide bombs in laptops to blow up civilian aircraft. "And, ah because these people are plugging for, for keeps and that they should call the Federal Bureau of Investigation in and say that we wish for the country, don't go any further into this case", period!" "He wasn't briefed on the source or method of the information either".

And while Comey himself has been silent, his associates have been exposing intriguing details of his encounters with Trump. "We have to ask ourselves what is the right thing to do and then do it". "We're going to have a lot of great success over the next coming years and we want to get as many to help fight terrorism as possible".

French president meeting EU chief, to reveal minister picks
Philippe is also relatively unknown to voters, fulfilling Macron's campaign promises to repopulate French politics with new faces. In 2014, Le Drian wrote in a statement that France "requests that Israel" minimize any harm to civilians in its attacks on Hamas.

Following Comey's abrupt dismissal, Trump contradicted his communications staff on the reason for firing him and admitted it was partially because of how Comey was handling the Russian investigation, touching off obstruction of justices allegations.
