KING: Calls for Trump's impeachment grow louder, minute by minute

It also asked the White House to provide records of interactions with Comey, including those "relating to the FBI's investigation of alleged ties between President Trump's associates and Russian Federation, or the Clinton email investigation, including all audio recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, or memoranda", according to a statement. Amash was also one of two Republicans, alongside North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones, who co-sponsored Democrats' legislation calling for the creation of an independent commission to continue Comey's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. Ms. Shiflett's president should clearly be investigated for obstruction of justice.

Curbelo acknowledged the possibility of impeachment when speaking to Capitol Hill reporters Tuesday afternoon, and later repeated it Tuesday night on CNN.

The Wisconsin Republican said he would not "micromanage" investigation and repeatedly said there are three separate ongoing Russian Federation investigations when asked if he thought a special prosecutor is necessary. "That is what Congress does in conducting oversight of the executive branch". "But when you add them all up, you have a very plausible obstruction of justice case, I think".

Additionally, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said he would not comment on The New York Times report, but that he was "happy" with Dermer's statement of support for the US-Israel relationship.

Democratic lawmakers have demanded that the Justice Department name a special prosecutor to investigate the Russian Federation matter.

Jason Chaffetz said in a tweet yesterday that he still hasn't spoken with Comey about testifying.

Comey's memo, an apparent effort to create a paper trail of his contacts with the White House, would be the clearest evidence to date that the president has tried to influence the investigation.

The people close to Mr. Flynn said he believed that when that warning did not dissuade Mr. Trump from making him national security adviser, the Justice Department opened its investigation into his lobbying work.

Hindley and Brady were caught after involving Hindley's brother-in-law David Smith in the murder of Edward Evans in October 1965. Brady and girlfriend Myra Hindley were jailed for killing five children in the 1960s, which became known as the "Moors Murders".

As for the memo: Which of the two, Comey or Trump, have had serious past issues with the truth?

The memo was written immediately after the meeting, a day after Michael Flynn resigned, according to media reports.

The requests came in letters to acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe and White House Counsel Donald McGahn.

Republican Senator John McCain has likened the scandal that is hitting US President Trump to the infamous Watergate scandal.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who chairs the Foreign Relations Committee, offered less than a vote of confidence when asked if Trump could still be trusted with classified information.

According to reports of the memo's contents, the president asked the other people present in the Oval Office at the time, including Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to leave the room.

But the swirling questions about his conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the US Coast Guard Academy in CT that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly". We are a nation of laws, we are fact based. But some testimony will necessarily be behind closed doors, because "unlike the White House, we treat classified information with the appropriate respect and follow the rules", Warner said. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said.
