Comey to testify before Senate intelligence committee

20 May 2017, 02:11 | Taylor George

Comey's highly-anticipated testimony, which will be slated after the Memorial Day congressional recess, comes after he was sacked by Trump May 9 amid a mounting investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election and possible ties between Trump campaign associates and the country. It said the paper was based on notes taken during the meeting inside the Oval Office.

Cleaver said Rosenstein's opening statement was "clear, concise" and had let those in the room know "this is a real investigation, looking into very real issues".

It has also been reported that Trump had told the Russians classified information about military operations involving Isis. According to the newly-revealed document, Mr Trump told Russian officials the day after Mr Comey left his job: "I just fired the head of the F.B.I".

After days of political tumult in Washington, the Justice Department announced the appointment on Thursday of a special counsel to look into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was named Special Counsel for the Russian Federation investigation on Wednesday.

President Trump's multi-city overseas trip is meant to bolster relations with Muslim and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

President Trump fired Comey last week, setting off a political firestorm that included allegations that he is trying to influence the federal investigation into alleged collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

Fognini played aggressively, however, and forced Nadal on to the defensive as he took the match into a deciding set. In another quarterfinal, Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay rallied to beat Alexander Zverev of Germany 3-6 6-0 6-4.

The surprise announcement to hand the probe over to Mueller, a lawman with deep bipartisan respect, was a striking shift for Trump's Justice Department, which had resisted increasingly loud calls from Democrats for an outside prosecutor. The White House is disputing a report that President Donald Trump asked Comey to shut down an investigation into ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn. Sessions has recused himself from the Trump-Russia probe, citing his close involvement in the Trump campaign past year.

The article did not identify the official, though it noted that the person was "someone close to the president".

"This is what OBSTRUCTION looks like: 'I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

Cummings said the committee's GOP chairman, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, "should. have his subpoena pen ready" to obtain any White House documents related to Trump's meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador.

Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify to a top Senate committee, an event that could prove a pivotal moment in the fate of President Trump's besieged administration.

On Capitol Hill, Comey was clearly the man in demand, with three committees working to seat him at their witness tables soon, two in the Senate and one in the House.
