Lawmakers vow full airing of Comey firing

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director has just announced he will testify about his relationship with a sitting president, a president who fired him, a president whose entourage he was investigating.

"Now the question is, how is it handled?"

The announcement came after reports Comey kept memos about his interactions with Trump; that Trump made him feel uncomfortable; that Trump urged him to lay off the Russia investigation; that the investigation was reaching into the highest levels of the current White House; and that Trump told a Russian delegation after firing Comey that the pressure was off him now.

"To me, the scandal is what's in these notes", Levin said.

McCain said the story could attain the steady "drip, drip, drip" of the Watergate leaks and revelations or could go the way of the Iran-Contra affair, which McCain argued President Ronald Reagan handled well. The team is likely to have lead counselors, those people said.

On the "Fox News Sunday" show Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump was also trying to convey to the Russians that he was "not going to be distracted by all these issues at home that affect us domestically".

"The American public deserves to know the answers", said Sen. "Let's get all the facts out there, let's move forward and try to address the challenges that face this nation".

Reagan fired Lt. Col. Oliver North from his National Security Council over the situation and later delivered an address saying that despite his "heart" and "best intentions", he had misled the American people.

Callers threaten Texas lawmaker who seeks Trump impeachment
The Southern-born Johnson had been a lifelong Democrat before joining with Abraham Lincoln on a so-called union ticket in 1864. If it were to happen, first it goes to the House of Representatives, the only body with the power to impeach a president.

"Mr. Comey was highly respected", McCain said. I think it divides the country, I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things.

I want to get to the trip, but first some questions about that meeting you all had with the Russian foreign minister.

Members of key congressional committees pledged Sunday to proceed with aggressive investigations into Russia's meddling in the US election and any ties with the Trump campaign, saying the American people need a full airing as to why former FBI director James Comey was ousted.

President Trump asked two top intelligence officials to deny there was evidence pointing to collusion between his election campaign and the Kremlin, it was claimed last night. But White House spokesman Sean Spicer has called the president's rhetoric part of his deal-making, contending that Comey had created "unnecessary pressure" on Trump's ability to negotiate with Russian Federation on a range of issues. A partner at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman in New York, Kasowitz has represented Trump in numerous cases, including on his divorce records, real estate transactions and allegations of fraud at Trump University. He said this in the Oval Office.

Weingarten, a high-powered attorney at Steptoe & Johnson in Washington known for his folksy style, is a somewhat unlikely choice because he has represented a series of Democratic clients, and is close friends with Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under former President Barack Obama.

McCain, however, called for a bold response.

Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter is returning to the United States after being detained in a Romanian airport.

"The President, I think, reemphasized the message to the Russians that the relationship was at a low point and we need to change that".
