While the Utah Republican has made his wish to have Comey testify public, he seems to have hit a snag extending the invitation to Comey personally. "So poor, in fact that I believed that's why the deputy Attorney General wrote the letter" in which the Justice Department advised the president to fire Comey.

Former FBI director James Comey prepared extensively for his discussions with President Donald Trump, out of concern that the president was unlikely to respect the legal and ethical boundaries governing their roles, the Washington Post reports, citing associates of the now-fired FBI chief.

The associates recounted how anxious Comey was about meeting with Trump and recalled conversations in which they brainstormed how to handle moments when the president asked for details of an investigation.

Striking a defiant stance, he added: "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee want FBI Director James Comey's notes.

Asked whom he trusts if it's Comey's word against the president's word, Amash said, "I think it's pretty clear that I have more confidence in Director Comey".

Homeland security adviser Tom Bossert reportedly alerted officials at the CIA and National Security Agency about what had happened in the immediate wake of Trump's revelation.

A Democratic lawmaker has called for impeachment of US President Donald Trump for his alleged involvement in obstruction of justice, after news reports revealed that he had asked the FBI to stop investigations against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Two days later, Flynn's lawyer and transition lawyers discussed the investigation of Flynn.

President Donald Trump didn't appear to break any law by sharing highly classified information with Russian Federation, but that doesn't make it any less problematic for America's intelligence agencies and their overseas partners.

Two Comey associates told NPR that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation leader is confident in his assessments and willing to tell lawmakers and the public why he conducted himself the way he did. Comey, who noted the request in a memo, was sacked by Trump on 9 May.

Graham said the sooner Comey can speak to Congress on the matter, the better.

"President Trump has committed an act for which he should be charged by the U.S. House of Representatives". As a political matter, it more and more looks that way.
