Unnamed White House Official Says Trump Is 'Completely F-ed'

Mr Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. That episode included a supposedly dramatic hospital bedside encounter when Bush aides tried to get ailing Attorney General John Ashcroft to sign off on the program's renewal.

Articles of impeachment, or a charge against a president for violation of the Constitution, must first be brought up in the House of Representatives.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers said they wanted to see the memo.

Speaking to the press at the White House after a meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Trump categorically rejected accusations that he pressured the FBI into closing the investigation into his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

In a freaky twist today, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions.

But Putin - who began Trump's administration hoping to establish better relations with the USA - may not try to hinder his American counterpart significantly, experts said. Yet U.S. allies and some members of Congress have expressed alarm. Mueller, who is well-regarded by both parties, was a name welcomed by Democrats and by some Republicans, as well.

Our request, submitted to the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, comes after The New York Times broke the story that Comey had memorialized his meetings with Trump, including one that took place in February, the day after Flynn was forced to resign amidst revelations he had lied about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

The Philippines hopes to achieve growth of between 6.5% and 7.5% this year, Pernia said. Pernia added that the slower GDP growth could be attributed to higher inflation rates.

According to the Times, the White House has declined to comment on whether transition officials were aware of the Flynn investigation before Trump's inauguration. Turkey has been a staunch opponent of the US working with Kurdish forces in the region. In January, only days after the inauguration, then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates had informed Trump's White House counsel that Flynn had been interviewed by the FBI as part of an active investigation.

But Ms May said she remained confident, highlighting the need to co-operate with the U.S. and other allies to counter the security threats posed by Islamic State and al-Qaeda.

Striking a defiant stance, he added: "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

But the Russian president may not want to make Trump's life more hard at home in the long term. Don't give in, don't back down.

When President Barack Obama met with Comey to discuss appointing him as FBI Director, the President made clear the two would not meet one-on-one after that, according to a separate person with knowledge of the matter. Cummings said "we have been waiting for months for the chairman to pick up his so-called subpoena pen". "I think it's reaching the point where it's of Watergate size and scale", Sen.

Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan backed Chaffetz.

Several Republicans said on Tuesday after the memo surfaced that Mr Comey should testify to Congress.
