Flynn reportedly told Trump's transition team about investigation before inauguration

Flynn reportedly told Trump's transition team about investigation before inauguration

Garret Graves, Steve Scalise and Ralph Abraham said they need to see more evidence and that they trust their colleagues on the appropriate committees will look into the matter.

In another development on Wednesday, Democratic Representative Al Green called for Trump's impeachment.

Later, the Senate judiciary committee whose subcommittee is also investigating Russian meddling into the United States election, requested that the FBI "provide all memos relating to former FBI Director Comey's interactions with his superiors in both the Trump and Obama administrations", according to a statement.

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

The memo reportedly states that Trump asked Comey to drop the bureau's probe into former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

According to the Times, Comey wrote in the February memo that Trump told him Flynn had done nothing wrong.

President Donald Trump lashed out on Thursday over his Justice Department's appointment of a special counsel to investigate possible ties between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, calling it "the single greatest witch hunt" in US history. "This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey".

Chaffetz told Pelley he wants the hearing with Comey to do the hearing "as publicly as we possibly can".

The Comey memo is likely to raise questions about whether Trump tried to interfere with a federal investigation.

On Wednesday, the Department of Justice appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller to be the special counsel in charge of the Russian Federation investigation. He then said he'd be willing to provide transcripts of the exchange his officials had with the president to Congress, but only if Trump and his administration personally requested the documents be sent over.

'WannaCry' ransomware attack: What we know so far
Surely, organizations that allow themselves to be hit by flaws that had been patched two months earlier deserve a heaping portion. Meanwhile, a security researcher in the United Kingdom discovered a " kill switch " in WannaCry, further mitigating its impact.

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has since responded to those comments, noting that the "President doesn't get to jail journalists".

Following Comey's abrupt dismissal, Trump contradicted his communications staff on the reason for firing him and admitted it was partially because of how Comey was handling the Russian investigation, touching off obstruction of justices allegations.

Putin also said that the scandal with that secret information was an act of "political schizophrenia".

"The President fired the FBI Director, not the FBI", Kennedy said in a statement Wednesday.

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said he would ask Comey for additional material as part of that panel's investigation. "The American people can make up their own minds, and the chips can fall where they may".

But U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, took a more favorable approach to Trump. The description in the purported memo "is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr. Comey", it said. "There's a whole litany of boxes that have to be checked, and a memo's just not going to reach that standard".

"It shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country", Trump told the group.

Russian Federation has denied US intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favor.
