Senate committee wants Comey to testify

Flynn is at the center of that investigation.

When President Barack Obama met with Comey to discuss appointing him as FBI Director, the President made clear the two would not meet one-on-one after that, according to a separate person with knowledge of the matter.

The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation turn over former Director James Comey's memo's documenting conversations with President Trump, joining a number of panels seeking the memos.

But Ms May said she remained confident, highlighting the need to co-operate with the U.S. and other allies to counter the security threats posed by Islamic State and al-Qaeda. "Republicans and Democrats can look in the light of day in a public setting".

While the White House denied access to the meeting to U.S. media, the Russians published photos of Trump smiling and shaking hands with his Russian guests, a move that angered the White House.

Flynn, according to the newspaper, had another conversation with lawyers on the transition team two days later. He is a New York Times bestselling author and hosts the popular weekend talk radio program, "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio". They spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid angering Justice Department or White House officials.

The White House denied the version of the conversation described by Comey's aides, telling The Post "the president has never asked Mr Comey or anyone else to end an investigation".

Russia has repeatedly said that Trump's opponents are trying to damage him and Moscow by making what it says are false accusations about the billionaire president and the Russian government which initially had high hopes of a rapprochement.

Even an impeachment of President Donald Trump wouldn't necessarily derail tax cuts - but it could wind up killing tax reform.

The latest Russian twist, first reported by the New York Times, comes a week after Trump fired Comey over his handling of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while at the state department.

After the meeting, Macron talked by phone with Putin about possible cooperation on global issues, including the fight against terrorism.

But many in the room didn't like the idea, and White House officials thought the announcement should be a coordinated message backed by multiple agencies, the source says.

The Department of Justice threw a curveball into the mix late Wednesday with the announcement that former FBI Director Robert Mueller had been appointed special counsel on the Russian Federation investigation, taking it over from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Three committees, all controlled by Republicans, have requested Comey's records.

The committee is one of several on Capitol Hill investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

Comey had several one-one-one meetings and phone discussions with Trump. "Calls for President Trump to be impeached are growing louder and that has created a long overdue sense of fear in markets", Jasper Lawler of London Capital Group said. He used that phrase nine times in his briefing to reporters.

Sharing the information isn't against the law, but it is a profoundly unsafe move that sets back USA intelligence gathering efforts, especially in the fight against the Islamic State.
