Trump reportedly asked Comey to consider imprisoning members of the press


The news conference was Trump's first since the Department of Justice on Wednesday appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the agency's investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

President Donald Trump didn't appear to break any law by sharing highly classified information with Russian Federation, but that doesn't make it any less problematic for America's intelligence agencies and their overseas partners. Comey, who noted the request in a memo, was sacked by Trump on 9 May.

Trump abruptly fired Comey last week, raising questions about whether he was attempting to interfere in the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into possible coordination between Trump associates and Russian operatives seeking to meddle in last year's presidential election.

Monmouth University Poll surveyed a pool of 1,002 adults between May 12 and 17.

We believe the issues raised by the Comey memos are so vital that the public should have access to them without delay. On Thursday, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) told reporters that Flynn's lawyers "said he would not honor the subpoena, and that's not a surprise to the committee".

Republicans and Democrats alike were eager to hear from Comey, who has increasingly emerged as a central figure in the unfolding drama.

And on Tuesday, with that latest report fanning the flames on the growing fallout from Trump's decision to terminate Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced he was appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller to oversee the Department of Justice investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. "No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly".

He finally fired Comey last week, in a move legal experts say could become the basis for an obstruction of justice investigation against the beleaguered American president.

In defiant mood, the President added "adversity makes you stronger".

"I need to actually be able to contact him and other than looking him up on Google, I need to network out how to be able do that", Chaffetz told the New York Times.

In a memo written in February, Comey wrote that Trump asked him during a one-on-one meeting to stop investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn, The Times reported. "I hope you can let this go", the memo reportedly quotes Trump as saying.
