Growing chorus of Republicans want Comey to testify

Laurie Berry | 18 May, 2017, 11:56

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

Green tweeted on Wednesday morning that "on the flood of the Congress of the United States of America, I will call for the Impeachment of the President".

"President Trump is not above the law", Green stated in a press release on his website.

But barring recordings, a memo still becomes a case of "he said, she said", said former prosecutor Jonathan Lopez.

Green, on the other hand, has apparently heard enough.

After The Washington Post reported Wednesday evening that last June, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told GOP leaders he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin paid both Donald Trump, then a presidential candidate, and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), one of Putin's vocal defenders in Congress, McCarthy told NBC News it was a "bad attempt at a joke". Chaffetz's letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation requests Comey memos not just for the first few months of the Trump administration but dating all the way back to the beginning of the Obama presidency in 2009. Associates of Comey later confirmed the details of it to The Washington Post.

October 28, 2016: Days before the election, Comey informs Congress by letter that he is reopening the investigation into Clinton's email practices based on new evidence, citing the discovery of emails on a laptop used by a top Clinton aide. Trump tells The Associated Press by telephone after the meeting that he "learned a lot" but declines to say whether he accepted their conclusion about Russian Federation.

"It depends on what he said and how he said it", said Edward MacMahon Jr., another criminal defense lawyer.

As for Comey, whom Trump fired last week, the FBI director wrote in a memo after a February meeting at the White House that the new president had asked him to shut down the FBI's investigation of Flynn and his Russian contacts, said a person who had read the memo. The White House denied the report, saying it was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey".

November 6, 2016: Trump criticizes Comey's second letter to Congress, saying Clinton was being protected by a "rigged system" and pronouncing her "guilty", despite the FBI's conclusion that criminal charges were unwarranted. He denies it had anything to do with the Russian Federation investigation, but also says: "In fact when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".

A look at key moments in Comey's tenure, the lead-up to Trump's decision to fire him and developments since then. "I hope you can let this go".

Cohen said that itself could be a piece of circumstantial evidence that Trump was trying to impede an ongoing probe.

"I think we've seen this movie before", the Arizona Republican said at a dinner to receive the International Republican Institute's Freedom Award. I have said on previous occasions, and do now say again, the President should be impeached.

"The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies and all investigations", the statement continues. Comey had previously declined to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but some media reports indicated that he would likely comply with the new requests.

Cohen said that while it was "highly improper" for Trump to insert himself in an investigation in any way, charging him would be hard.
