Trump denies asking Comey to end Flynn investigation


When asked during a press conference whether he had ever urged Comey to end the probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Trump swiftly interrupted the reporter, saying, "No, no".

Rep Al Green, called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice, citing the circumstances around which former FBI Director James Comey was sacked.

The campaign on Thursday said that it generated US$314,000 online, mostly through small donations.

He said: "Of course not, I think to suggest that is to give credence to some of these weird rumours that have swirled around the candidacy". He was sacked as national security adviser in February after it emerged he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations with the Russian ambassador to Washington in December. Mr. Trump stated, "I look forward to this matter concluding quickly", and reiterated, "there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity".

Former National Security Adviser Has Not Responded To Subpoena
Burr told reporters Thursday that Flynn's lawyer informed the panel he will not abide by a subpoena for private documents. If Flynn declines to comply with the subpoena, the intelligence committee could have little legal recourse.

Trump said later, however, that he had been thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired Comey, whom he called a "showboat" and a "grandstander" in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt last Thursday.

"The White House stays out of criminal investigations, full stop".

"But if you're trying to build an obstruction-of-justice case, you might want the president to keep talking, because everything he does is digging a deeper legal hole for himself".

Robert Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who also served in the Department of Justice under both Democratic and Republican presidents, was announced Wednesday as the special counsel who will oversee the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Kremlin interference in the campaign.

A different attorney general, perhaps-hopefully he doesn't come from one of the 43 states that pick them in elections. John McCain's presidential bid in 2008 over Barack Obama, speaking at the Republican National Convention that year.

Earlier this week there were several news reports that Trump made the request regarding Flynn during a February meeting in the Oval Office - these accounts were based on a memo Comey drafted at the time, the contents of which were described by officials familiar with the memo.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly briefed senators on Mueller's appointment on Thursday, but refused to give a public statement.

The Justice Department says Mueller, the new special counsel, has been given sweeping power to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, including potential links between Moscow and Trump associates.

Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro told MSNBC's Chris Hayes that if the reports about Comey's memo are true, then Trump obstructed justice and impeachment would be warranted. "Because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such bad things about director Comey", he said.
