Flynn, Manafort Are Key Figures In Russia Probe Mueller Will Lead

House Oversight Committee Chairman U.S. Sen. The White House denied the report, saying it was 'not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr Comey'.

Chaffetz is not the only one who has reached out to Comey - the Senate Intelligence Committee invited Comey to testify in both closed and open sessions on Wednesday as well - so those "networks" should be pretty easy to find.

In his statement Wednesday evening, the senator said Congress would still "have a role to play in bringing transparency to the American people". One associate said Comey wrote down as much as he could once he got back to his auto. Republicans, meanwhile, have continued asking questions about the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server a year ago.

The allegation was made by Comey himself in a memo he wrote after a meeting in February.

The senators have also asked Comey to testify about his interactions with former President Barack Obama's administration about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails.
