Chairman Jason Chaffetz is all set to schedule a hearing inviting former FBI Director James Comey to testify publicly before his committee - if the Utah Republican can just find his phone number.
The documentation of Trump's request is the clearest evidence that the President has tried to directly influence the justice department and FBI investigation into links between Trump's associates and Russian Federation.
The central question is whether Trump's reported conversation and statements to Comey constitute an obstruction of justice.
This week, it was reported that Comey wrote a private memo describing a meeting in which Trump allegedly asked him to stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation review of Flynn, who was forced to resign earlier this year after the White House determined he had lied about his contacts with the Russians.
On Monday, the Washington Post, followed by a number of other USA outlets, said Mr Trump had given the Russian officials information relating to the Islamic State group (IS) that could have endangered the source of the information. Trump said to Comey that Flynn was a good guy, to which Comey agreed, the person said. "I hope you can let this go", the memo reportedly quotes Trump as saying.
"We invite you to testify at a public hearing of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary regarding the circumstances of your termination as director of the FBI and your interactions with Trump and Obama administration officials regarding the FBI's Russian Federation investigation and Clinton email investigation", they wrote.
The White House was already on the defensive over the president's firing of Comey a week ago and over a report Monday that Trump disclosed sensitive intelligence to Russian officials.
According to the Times, Comey wrote in the February memo that Trump told him Flynn had done nothing wrong.
"If it exists, we should be able to see it, authenticate it", he said.
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. It is expected to include scrutiny of Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn, as well as his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and two former advisors, Carter Page and Roger Stone, and their contacts with Russian officials. Sources close to Comey and who are familiar with the memo said the Times account is accurate.
Ryan added the FBI is continuing its investigation into reported ties between Russian Federation and the Trump administration. Jason Chaffetz, the House Oversight Committee has officially invited James Comey to testify next Wednesday.
