Congressmembers say they want to hear directly from fired FBI Director James Comey … after the New York Times reported that Comey documented President Trump asking him to drop the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The White House was already reeling from the news that Trump had shared classified secrets with the Russians … and denies the Comey memo.
UPDATE: Russian President Putin says he can prove that President Trump did not pass on classified intelligence to Putin’s foreign minister – by giving Congress a transcript of their Oval Office meeting. It has been widely reported that Trump disclosed an ally’s secrets about the Islamic State to Russian officials last week.
