Democrats seek impeachment of Donald Trump

Ex-FBI Director James Comey and ex-US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn

It would certainly raise even more eyebrows if it turns out Rosenstein knew that Trump had pressured Comey to dial back the probe - and still went ahead and wrote a damning letter that the White House initially used as the rationale for dumping Comey.

Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) sent the ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director a letter asking him to testify in both open and closed sessions.

Do the contents of James Comey's memo that President Trump tried to get him to end the investigation of then-national security adviser Michael Flynn spell legal trouble for the president or just a massive political problem? Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT, a member of the Judiciary Committee, called the memo, as reported, "powerful evidence of obstruction of justice". The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

Meanwhile, tensions on Capitol Hill are mounting after Trump seemed to undercut the White House's response to the Comey firing, saying that he was considering the "Russia thing" when he decided on termination.

Amash tweeted Tuesday night that the allegations in the memo are "incredibly serious" and require Comey to testify in front of the House.

"We need the facts".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not want Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford
The only real area of interest now is over who will make it into the top four and claim a place in next season's Champions League. The last time that these two sides met Arsenal won 4-1, and the odds of the same result are (12.76).

Trump, whose administration has been dogged by allegations that Russia helped him win the White House and that he and his allies are too cosy with Moscow, has defended his decision to discuss intelligence with the Russians after media reports of the meeting alarmed some USA and foreign politicians.

Trump fired Flynn on February 13 on grounds that he had misled Vice-President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russians. Congress is probing alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including any possible ties between Trump campaign associates and the Kremlin.

In Washington, Republican and Democratic lawmakers said they wanted to see the Comey memo.

"Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said.

Democrats pointed out that Ryan had called for Democrat Hillary Clinton to be denied classified briefings after Comey concluded past year that she was careless in how she handled classified information over her email accounts. When that ended, Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey, and he eventually turned the conversation to Flynn. Two said, however, that the Israeli operation, one of the West's best windows into ISIS, was in jeopardy in the wake of the president's disclosure. He used that phrase nine times in his briefing to reporters. Only the U.S. Senate can do this after a trial.

Trump told the Russian foreign minister and the Russian ambassador in the Oval Office that the Islamic State had used stolen airport security equipment to test a bomb that could be hidden in electronic devices and slipped undetected into an airplane cabin, the officials said.
