Trump asked Comey to 'close Flynn probe'

Donald Trump's firing of FBI chief James Comey caused an uproar in Washington

On CNN, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., had just declared that he supported calling for an independent commission or special prosecutor to investigate any ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation when host Alisyn Camerota cut in with news of Putin's announcement.

And he adopted a skeptical tone toward the reports that have the White House in chaos and lawmakers scrambling to respond. "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

The American Civil Liberties Union today filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Justice Department and FBI seeking the memo by former FBI Director James Comey describing his February meeting with President Trump in which Trump reportedly asked Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his ties to Russian Federation. "So there are a lot of unanswered questions". "The president implied in a tweet last week that the White House may have recordings of interactions with Comey".

Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski said on Wednesday it may be time for an independent commission or special prosecutor, expressing concern about "the continuous and often conflicting reports about President Trump, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Russian Federation". According to John McCain, Trump's scandals are "reaching Watergate size and scale". When it came to the Senate trial, all 45 Democrats voted to acquit him of both charges; they were joined by 10 Republicans in acquitting Clinton of the perjury charge, and five in acquitting him of the obstruction of justice charge.

Green joined other Democratic lawmakers to call for the president's impeachment, although Democratic leadership in Congress said it was too soon to move ahead with such action, Fox News reported.

"I'm convinced that the president did nothing that he thought was outside the best interest of the country", said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.

The Russia story has already claimed one victim - Mr Trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was sacked after misleading the government over his meetings with Mr Kislyak.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia said he and the majority of House Republicans remain behind the president and his voters "definitely" do. Granted, one might think he would care when USA interests (and perhaps lives) are on the line, but we've seen no evidence of that; that "officials expressed concern with Trump's handling of sensitive information as well as his grasp of the potential consequences" is consistent with everything we've seen from him in the campaign, during the transition, and after he took office. What's needed is for patriotic-minded Republicans to impose on him a professional chief of staff - a Rob Portman, or Mitch Daniels - and to get rid of the amateur hour hangers-on, beginning with Trump's own family members. Republicans of the House Judiciary Committee predominately voted against the articles of impeachment for the president. Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe told Congress last week that the investigation was "highly significant" and said Comey's dismissal would do nothing to impede the probe.
