Garland has no interest in leaving judiciary for FBI, source says

Poll Public wants special prosecutor for Russia probe

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that Trump's proposed "border adjustment tax" stands little chance of being approved by the upper chamber.

"There is a crisis of credibility in this administration which will hurt us in ways nearly too numerous to elaborate", Schumer said. The disclosures may have endangered a key intelligence source involved with the campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), U.S. officials told the Post. In a pair of tweets Tuesday morning, Trump said he had the "absolute right" to share information with Russian Federation.

Other Republicans seemed to give the White House the benefit of the doubt as they called for more information.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell responded tersely "no" when pressed on whether he had concerns about the president's ability to handle classified information, or whether he was losing confidence in Trump.

"It's got to happen", Sen. But that is in fact what one member of Congress suggested last week.

FOX Business was also first to report that Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) proposed Garland as someone who should be considered to become the next Federal Bureau of Investigation director during a phone conference on Wednesday with White House officials, including Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

Standalone Google VR headset to debut at I/O?
However, Variety is reporting that Google is set to unveil a VR headset that is completely standalone-no phone required. And earlier this month, Google acquired Owlchemy Labs, the maker of the Job Simulator, another highly-popular VR game.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain says reports that President Donald Trump revealed highly classified information to senior Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting last week are "deeply disturbing".

Republicans caught off-guard by the latest revelation insisted they wanted to hear from Comey.

The idea of sending Mr Garland over to the J. Edgar Hoover Building was reportedly first floated by Republican Senator Mike Lee, and the idea quickly gained steam in Washington among both Democrats and Republicans.

"Reports that this information was provided by a USA ally and shared without its knowledge sends a troubling signal to America's allies and partners around the world and may impair their willingness to share intelligence with us in the future", McCain said. "Right? I mean this was just weird", Sasse added.

"We have no way to know what was said, but protecting our nation's secrets is paramount", said Doug Andres, a spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan. "I'm not going to take a memo, I want the guy to come in", said Sen.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY says that if Trump has "nothing to hide", he'll turn over unedited transcripts to the House and Senate intelligence committees.
