From crisis to crisis: Trump's struggling presidency

From crisis to crisis: Trump's struggling presidency

On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that former FBI director James Comey wrote a memo about a February attempt by Trump to get the FBI to stop its investigation of Flynn.

"I don't think we're there yet", Arizona Sen.

Nonetheless, this week's developments have evoked a sense of a White House that has lost control of events and a president who has become increasingly erratic.

Comey has been invited to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee next week. "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Trump is accused of telling Comey, according to a memo written by the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, who was sacked last week.

What do Mr. Comey's memos on his meetings with Mr. Trump say?

News Tuesday of Trump's request of Comey immediately renewed concerns from congressional Democrats that Trump was trying to obstruct an investigation that's been examining potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

But it is two sets of revelations over the last 24 hours - that the U.S. president shared classified information with Russian Federation and that he ordered former FBI chief James Comey to half its investigation into Mike Flynn, which has been denied by the White House, that may bring the 45th USA presidency into new territory.

The White House initially said the decision was motivated by Comey's mishandling of the probe into Hillary Clinton's emails - but Trump himself undercut that explanation by saying he always meant to fire Comey and that his decision was linked to the Russian Federation probe. Green had already called for Trump's impeachment at a press conference and on television earlier in the week. Comey has turned down past offers to testify before Congressional committees.

Ryan said Congress needs to get the facts, but "it is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

While we hope that Congress will be serious about its constitutional oversight role, we believe the issues raised by the Comey memos are so vital that the public should have access to them without delay.

"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.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

The latest exchanges are another reminder of how links between Mr Trump's team and Russian officials have cast a long shadow over this White House. In January, only days after the inauguration, then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates had informed Trump's White House counsel that Flynn had been interviewed by the FBI as part of an active investigation.

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

"My view is that there are a lot of pieces coming together", said Peter Zeidenberg, a former public corruption prosecutor.

With an FBI investigation gathering pace, its director, James Comey, was sacked last week.

Citing unnamed sources, the Washington Post had reported that Mr Trump had shared intelligence with Mr Lavrov regarding an Islamic State group terror threat related to the use of laptop computers on airplanes. Really, if a freshman can refuse to spin for the White House, why can't lawmakers with years of seniority in no danger of losing their seats?
