Trump is also under pressure over accusations he asked then-FBI Director James Comey to end the agency's investigation into the Russian Federation ties of former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The White House also strongly denied the claims in the Times.

Putin, who still hopes Moscow can fix battered ties with the United States despite a deepening political scandal in the United States related to Trump's purported Russian Federation ties, said Moscow had rated Lavrov's meeting with Trump highly. "Before rushing to judgment, we need to get all the pertinent information".

Ryan said Wednesday he told congressional Republicans to spend time gathering all the facts on the questions surrounding President Trump, and warned against jumping to conclusions based on news reports.

Al Green renewed calls for the impeachment of President Trump on the House floor Wednesday, in the wake of new allegations concerning the Russian Federation probe - as other lawmakers warned against a rush to judgment.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee has requested the memo in full and to hear from Comey himself.

"The public will have the last word", Green said Tuesday.

"I'm not going to micromanage or armchair quarterback investigations, but the point is this: We can't deal with speculation and innuendo - and there's clearly a lot of politics being played - our jobs is to get the facts", he said. His comments were reported by The Daily Beast.

But Republicans and most Democrats are strongly warning against such impeachment talk. Several came to his defense and sought to close ranks.

In his letter to McCabe, Chaffetz says that the memo raises questions "as to whether the President attempted to influence or impede the FBI's investigation as it relates to Lt. Gen. Flynn". "So somebody's going to have to do more than have anonymous sources on this one for me to believe that there's something there". On Tuesday evening, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) noted that if Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice, then that could and should be considered an impeachable offense.

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said simply, "It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House".
