Donald Trump's advisors 'contacted Russian officials at least 18 TIMES before election'

The press conference was also one of Trump's last opportunities to speak on the record to the American media before his first trip overseas as president later this week. In light of all of this, House Democrats are pushing harder than ever for Congress to appoint a special prosecutor to handle the case outside of Capitol Hill.

As the controversy swirled, Trump said in a speech to US Coast Guard Academy graduates in CT he did not get elected "to serve the Washington media or special interests".

Asked by reporters whether he thought the allegations against Trump were grounds for impeachment, Republican Representative Justin Amash said, "If the allegations are true, yes".

What we do know is that, ahead of the trip, Trump is in a defensive posture - and he has resorted to grievance politics. "We can not allow this to go unchecked-the president is not above the law, it is time for the American people to weigh in".

Trump left the White House on Wednesday morning to head to ct where he was scheduled to give the commencement address at the US Coast Guard Academy. The Flynn investigation was part of a broader probe into Russian interference in 2016's presidential election.

The release of Comey memos and other materials to Congress would immediately change the nature of congressional investigations into the president and Russian Federation.

Comey has not yet informed Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the oversight panel, whether he will testify at a public hearing scheduled next week, Chaffetz told CBS News' Scott Pelley Wednesday.

A combination photo shows former U.S. FBI Director James Comey testifies over investigation into Hillary Clinton's email system, on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. on July 7, 2016, and U.S. President Donald Trump nominates Judge Neil Gorsuch as the new justice for the Supreme Court in Washington D.C., the United States, on January 31, 2017.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain said Tuesday the recent developments are reaching a Watergate levels.

A Gallup tracking poll put Trump's approval rating at a historically low 38 percent, even before the latest wave of scandals. Whether the Republicans begin to call for his impeachment, they shouldn't have supported Trump in the first place.


The White House is in a "downward spiral" and needs to do something to get "under control", Republican Senator Bob Corker has said. Inovo BV is owned by Ekim Alptekin, whom the Times identifies as "a Turkish businessman who is close to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey".

The White House on Tuesday said the report was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey".

Ironically, President Trump would go on to approve a proposal to arm Kurdish forces in early May 2017, despite the warnings and protests from Turkey.

Trump is leaving today for his first foreign trip, to the Mideast and beyond, and aides had hoped the disarray at home would have been calmed if not resolved by take-off time.

Jason Chaffetz, Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Tuesday night that he is requesting the Federal Bureau of Investigation to submit all the files and recordings involving any communications between Comey and Trump.

Republicans emphasize that the sprawling FBI and congressional investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the election have yet to produce any hard evidence. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said. Comey wrote other memos, although this source didn't elaborate on that point.

"Well, I respect the move but the entire thing has been a witch hunt", Trump said when asked about the investigation.

The newspaper said Comey was in the Oval Office that day with other national security officials for a terrorism threat briefing. National Security Adviser H R McMaster said the president's comments were "wholly appropriate". He used that phrase nine times in his briefing to reporters.
