A White House official said in a statement on Tuesday that Trump "has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country", but that he "has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn". In a separate but related probe, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into Flynn's ties with Russian Federation.
Democratic lawmakers have demanded that the Justice Department name a special prosecutor to investigate the Russian Federation matter.
News yesterday of Trump's request of Comey immediately renewed concerns from congressional Democrats that Trump was trying to obstruct an investigation that's been examining potential co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. A simple majority is required in the House to impeach a president, which would lead to a trial by the Senate and possible removal from office.
On May 17, one House Republican signaled support for impeaching Trump if the Comey memo was verified.
Republican Adam Kinzinger, a member of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, was among Republicans calling for an independent probe.
Ryan, however, pointed to ongoing investigations in the House of Representatives and Senate as well as the FBI investigation of contact between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

The Russian president's comments on Wednesday were the first since accusations first surfaced that the United States president shared secrets while meeting Lavrov at the White House.
Putin said he was pleased with Lavrov's visit to the U.S. capital last week but mocked the idea that Trump had shared secrets during the meeting on May 10, calling the allegations "political schizophrenia" and saying people spreading them are either "dumb" or "corrupt".
Most Republicans have said the current Federal Bureau of Investigation probe and investigations in the Republican-led Congress into the Russian Federation matter are sufficient.
Surrounded by multiplying questions, President Donald Trump complained Wednesday that "no politician in history" has been treated worse.
Ryan said Congress needs to get the facts, but "it is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president". The White House has denied that report. Comey said he replied that "I agree he is a good guy" but said nothing to Trump about limiting the investigation.
Congressional Republicans - members of Trump's party - were also expressing concern about the latest revelations, which raise questions as to whether Trump broke the law by obstructing an investigation into potential links between his campaign team and Russian Federation.
