Grassley Seeks Copies of Reported Comey Memos and Possible Trump Tapes

Trump allies come up with the wrong response to the Comey bombshell

Comey wrote other memos, although this source didn't elaborate on that point.

Hours after a news report that President Trump had asked the FBI director to back away from an investigation, Democrats seized on the information to accuse the White House of a serious crime. "At worst, he has obstructed justice".

But proving obstruction of justice is hard.

President Donald Trump says a thorough investigation will confirm what he says is already known: that there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and any foreign entity. Ultimately, any proof that Trump tried to meddle in an FBI investigation may result in obstruction of justice charges.

That's a tricky question to answer.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) also brought up McCabe testifying that the FBI's Russian investigation had not suffered from any interference.

Michael J. Gerhardt, a constitutional law professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, agrees. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said. Prosecutors could question Trump's top aides, or call Trump before a grand jury.

In the 1990s, Democrats insisted that independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated former President Bill Clinton, overstepped his authority.

They asked him to testify on the "circumstances of your termination" and his interactions with President Donald Trump's administration about the FBI's investigation into Russian Federation.

The Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have invited Comey to testify about the FBI investigation into Russian meddling and any ties to Mr. Trump's associates, as well as the events surrounding his ouster.

Turkish ties hit rough patch after rough Erdogan visit
President Erdogan's security staff can be seen kicking and beating Turkish anti-government protesters in Washington. Police Chief Peter Newsham said on Wednesday the violence was "not something we tolerate in our city".


Under this vague definition, a prosecutor could "probably put together an incredible case" against Mr Trump, said Julie O'Sullivan, a professor at the Georgetown University Law Centre.

"There's enough to warrant an investigation", she told PBS, but added: "We can never know what [Trump] was actually thinking". "Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department". And some experts have argued that there's still no damning evidence.

According to the Times, Comey wrote in the February memo that Trump told him Flynn had done nothing wrong.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz has scheduled a full committee hearing on the FBI's independence for May 24.

When Richard Nixon uttered the phrase "When the president does it that means it is not illegal" during his infamous and revealing interviews with British presenter David Frost in 1977, later brought even more dramatically to light in 2008's Ron Howard film Frost/Nixon, the sheer audacity of the statement only proved to cement what many believed of the disgraced former commander-in-chief.

Impeachment proceedings go through Congress. The House initiates, and requires a majority vote.

Donald Trump, the most-unlikely and least-liked president in the history of the United States, had barely celebrated his first 100 days when calls for his impeachment started flying faster than Anthony Weiner dick pics at a Girl Scout cookout.

But years later, in 1997's Clinton vs. Jones, the Supreme Court declared that a president could be sued in federal courts. "As President, I wanted to share with Russian Federation (at an openly scheduled WH meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining.to terrorism and airline flight safety". What Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, thinks about Trump's guiltiness, for example, could differ widely from the views held by Sen.

Chaffetz said he has always had strong support from congressional leaders.
