House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) also put in a request with the FBI for such memos Tuesday evening, but his request pertained to all Comey memos stretching back to the beginning of the Obama administration, not just those related to the Russian Federation inquiry or the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as Secretary of State.

They called on the White House "to provide records of interactions with former Director Comey, including any audio recordings". Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA), asked FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe for all "notes or memorandum" Comey may have left about conversations with the White House over the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

The letters were signed by both the Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and ranking member Sen.

The New York Times also reported Tuesday that Trump asked Comey to quash an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, citing a memo written by the former FBI chief.

Mark Warner, as well as asking Comey to testify.

The requests came in letters to acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe and White House Counsel Donald McGahn.

Pointing to reports that Comey frequently documented conversations with memos, the senators wrote that "presumably this means that Mr. Comey created similar memoranda relating to other controversial conversations, whether with officials in the current administration or the prior one". And following the latest revelations, the tone of members across the Capitol was far more serious than in the past about investigating Trump's actions and motivations as they said they were eager to hear Comey's side of the story. "In order to gain that credibility, it may be that we need to look to an independent commission or special prosecutor", she continued.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), an iconoclastic libertarian, told reporters that if reports about Comey's memo are true he thinks Trump should be impeached.
