Ryan says no rush to judgment on Comey firing

20 May 2017, 04:51 | Winston Chapman

In his most risky and irresponsible act so far, Trump shared highly classified information with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador to the US, who visited the White House last week.

The Comey memo's emergence had congressional Democrats suggesting that the president engaged in obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense. "Our job is to be responsible, sober and focus only on gathering the facts".

Leaving their meeting Wednesday, a number of conservative House Republicans said they and their constituents remained firmly supportive of the president, and they questioned why there are so many leaks coming out that are hurtful to Trump.

"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know: There was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity", he said.

Ryan said that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has "appropriately" requested the Comey memo. Trump told the Russians details of the plot that the USA had received from a partner country. "What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command".

Schiff said he would ask Comey, who was sacked by Trump on May 9, what concerned him about the conversation, if he reported it to superiors at the Justice Department and if there were any other talks with the president that concerned him.

Russian Federation has denied U.S. intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favour.

The Senate Judiciary Committee asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to provide memos related to Comey's dealings with his superiors in the Trump and Obama administrations.

Putin, who still hopes Moscow can fix battered ties with the United States despite a deepening political scandal in the United States related to Trump's purported Russian Federation ties, said Moscow had rated Lavrov's meeting with Trump highly.

Trump willing to try engagement with N.Korea, on conditions - Seoul
Lesser than a week ago, Choi Son Hui, head of US affairs for North Korea's foreign ministry, told media that Pyongyang would consider "dialogue" with the U.S.

Trump, whose administration has been dogged by allegations that Russia helped him win the White House and that he and his allies are too cosy with Moscow, has defended his decision to discuss intelligence with the Russians after media reports of the meeting alarmed some USA and foreign politicians.

Democrats and a number of Republicans said they wanted to hear from Comey, who was sacked last week a day before Trump met in the Oval Office with the Russian diplomats.

While some cracks have begun to appear among Republicans, party leaders said Wednesday that they were waiting for more information.

Under current United States law, the president has the power to declassify information as he or she sees fit.

According to The New York Times, which first reported the memo, Trump told Comey during a meeting in February: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

Democrats badgered Republicans to stand up to the president, and demanded access to the transcripts of Trump's meeting last week with two Russian diplomats.

"These people either don't understand that they are hurting their own country, and in that case they are just dumb", Putin said.

Reuters reported yesterday that Flynn and other Trump campaign advisers were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the presidential race. No Republicans, Baier said, were willing to go on camera and defend their president. It also asked acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to give the committee any notes Comey might have made regarding discussions he had with White House or Justice Department officials about Russia's efforts to influence the election.
