House, Senate investigators seek Trump tapes, Comey memos

Former FBI director James Comey listens to the committee chairman at the beginning of the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday

He said he deserved more credit for economic gains and stock market confidence. "Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'" Trump said on Twitter.

He understood that the appointment of a special counsel "would send the message, "Uh-huh, there's something here" and that it would be "many months later or a year later" before the special counsel would announce that, in fact, "there was no case there".

Iohannis spoke of Trump's remarks last month about some members of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation not spending enough of defense, saying he liked the USA president's speech on the matter.

"You and I both know my father a long time", Trump Jr. told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro.

His jurisdiction included Trump Tower. And when Sessions wrote a letter that Trump used to justify firing the F.B.I. director, was he, as Senator Ron Wyden, of OR, asked on Thursday, violating the terms of his recusal?

The president had previewed his attacks against Comey in an early-morning tweet that broke his previous day's silence on his favorite social media megaphone.

Donald Trump shakes hands with his Romanian counterpart Klaus Iohannis after a joint news conference in the Rose Garden on Friday. A refusal to co-operate with the special counsel, however, would just magnify the problems for the White House, Turley said.

Mr Trump's aides have dodged questions about whether conversations relevant to the Russian Federation investigation have been recorded, and so did the president, in series of teases.

Senator James Lankford, a member of the same committee, agreed the panel needed to hear any tapes that exist.

"That's a decision that the president will make in consultation with his chief lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, and that the president said he'll address next week", he said.

Mr Lankford said Mr Sessions's testimony will help flesh out the truth of Mr Comey's allegations, including Mr Sessions's presence at the White House in February when Mr Trump asked to speak to Mr Comey alone.

She also said her father is "incredibly optimistic" following the congressional testimony, in which Comey claimed Trump had directed him to shut down an investigation into a former senior White House official and lied to smear Comey after he was sacked.

Taylor Swift is now available on all music streaming services
Swift is yet to comment herself on her decision, while Perry has just been concentrating on promoting the Witness album and tour. But @HaleyyyEvans said: "Honestly Taylor Swift coming back to Spotify is the best thing that's happened to me all year".

He said Trump pressured him to drop a Russia-related probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and fired him when that didn't happen.

U.S. President Donald Trump surprisingly refrained from tweeting during James Comey's testimony.

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., said Sunday "there's a real question of the propriety" of Sessions' involvement in Comey's dismissal, because Sessions had stepped aside from the federal investigation into contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Sekulow reiterated on Sunday, "He has made the statement of what he would do as far as testimony if that's necessary". She said she's trying to keep her focus on helping her father change the status quo.

While today's news is all about Comey versus Trump, Hillary Clinton's supporters still haven't forgiven his revival of the Clinton email investigation days before the November election.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled to testify Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, potentially on his contacts during the Trump campaign with Russia's ambassador to the United States.

Japan enacts law for Emperor Akihito, 83, to abdicate

Compare that to what he told Sen.
