Graham calls on Comey to testify, doesn't want 'trial by newspaper'

Graham calls on Comey to testify, doesn't want 'trial by newspaper'

Of course, if the latest revelations are correct, "I hope you can let this go" is evidence of the president trying to squelch at least part of an ongoing federal investigation.

Trump tried to shut down the FBI investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, US media reported on Tuesday.

"As President I wanted to share with Russian Federation (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety", Trump wrote in a series of early morning Twitter posts.

This is precisely what a president whose team is under an FBI investigation can not do.

On Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Congress needs to gather all relevant information before "rushing to judgment".

Chaffetz gave a deadline for FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe to produce the requested material by May 24, citing House Rule X [text, PDF] as authority.

Regardless, given the infancy of the story, at least one lawmaker wants to see before he believes the report. "That means before rushing to judgment we get all the pertinent information".

Just weeks later, Trump fired Comey.

"I'm sure we're going to go on to hear from Mr. Comey about why, if this happened as he allegedly describes, why didn't he take action at the time?".

"It describes a criminal offense for someone to interfere with an ongoing proceeding with a corrupt goal", said the South Boston Democrat.

"There are other memos about his meetings too", a purported friend of Comey's told Politico. "The public has a right to know if that's true", said Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU National Security Project.
