Senate Judiciary Committee Wants FBI's Comey Memos

19 May 2017

A top Republican senator is comparing former FBI Director James Comey's memo about his conversation with President Trump to the Watergate scandal that led to President Nixon's resignation.

Chaffetz is not the only one who has reached out to Comey - the Senate Intelligence Committee invited Comey to testify in both closed and open sessions on Wednesday as well - so those "networks" should be pretty easy to find.

The candidates range from former Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman to the current acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. "You can't let them get you down, can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams". "I think the American people deserve answers". "Believe me, there's no collusion".

Asked what he would advise President Trump to do now, McCain said, "Get it all out".

"You guys are barking up the wrong tree", Sen.

Risch insisted the "real story" is leaks coming out of the administration.

Trump Weighing 11 Candidates for FBI Post
Richard Burr (R-N.C.), said Tuesday he was "troubled by the timing and reasoning of Director Comey's termination". The first candidate to arrive was Alice Fisher, a high-ranking Justice Department official in the George W.

Trump's admission that he considered "this Russian Federation thing" when firing Comey, along with the reported Comey memo, point to the president impeding an on-going counterintelligence investigation. "They've committed treason and ought to go to prison".

"During the House's weeklong recess, Sanford found that the controversy surrounding Trump 'is very much hot and bright, and of great concern with regard to the public I talk to back home, ' even in his conservative district".

But other Republicans see it differently.

McCain also reflected on the major headlines that have come out of the Trump White House almost every day for more than a week. Prosecutors could also look at circumstantial evidence, such as Trump's decision to fire Flynn and Comey and the timing of those dismissals, O'Sullivan said.

In GOP Rep. Barry Loudermilk's Georgia district, Trump won with 60 percent of the vote.

Trump responded by tweeting that as president, he had authority to disclose whatever he'd like.

Trump will not announce Israel embassy move on trip
During the presidential campaign, Trump pledged to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv, Israel to Jerusalem , and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said early this month that Trump was "giving serious consideration into" the relocation.

"Definitely, there's no question", Loudermilk said. Spicer told the gaggle that that Trump recently spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but he insisted that it was about Trump's upcoming trip overseas, and not about how Trump's leaked intelligence reportedly came from the Israelis.

There's also the issue of the GOP agenda. About 10 House Republicans and four Senate Republicans have called for some sort of independent investigation. Crossing the voters who elected them is not a recipe for a GOP victory in 2018 congressional elections. Trump said he acted because Comey, who had been overseeing the Russian Federation investigation, "wasn't doing a good job" leading the agency, calling him a "showboat" and a "grandstander". "And there's a reason it's selective", said White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who once demanded that staffers turn over their cell phones so he could inspect them for unauthorized communication.

"It shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country", Trump told the group.

In a short statement issued by the White House on Wednesday (May 17), Trump maintained that his campaign did not collaborate with "any foreign entity". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

The Washington Post reported this week that Trump shared highly classified information with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak about an Islamic State terror threat involving laptop computers on aircraft.

House Republican Justin Amash of MI said that it may have been an abuse of his office.

The Tigers can only earn an outright title if it sweeps Mississippi State , and Florida and Kentucky split the final two games. Hess logged a 1-2-3 8 inning and Newman recorded his 9 save by working around a one-out walk to risky slugger Brent Rooker.

"No red flags were mentioned or anything else", Aderholt said.
