Back to drawing board for Trump team — Federal Bureau of Investigation director search

The congressman has been one of the most vocal legislators pioneering for the president's impeachment following the firing of the former FBI Director James Comey who was investigating the possible ties between trumps' campaign and Russian Federation. Trump fired Comey May 9 amid questions about the FBI's investigation.

Now, it appears that Comey wasn't the only intelligence official President Trump asked to stop probing his closest allies.

Trump has tapped one of the firm's partners, Marc Kasowitz, to be his private attorney while a special counsel investigates whether his 2016 presidential campaign worked with Russian Federation to defeat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. "The sensitive intelligence was shared with the US, officials say, on the condition that the source remain confidential", reported ABC News' Brian Ross, James Gordon Meek and Randy Kreider May 16.

President Donald Trump fired Flynn for making misleading statements to Vice President Michael Pence about his contacts with Russian officials. Others thought they could use Manafort's association with former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who led a pro-Russian political party, to their advantage, the Times reported.

In its report, the New York Times said some Russians boasted about how well they knew Flynn, who was subsequently named Trump's national security adviser before being dismissed less than a month after the Republican took office.

One senior official noted that "paralysis" had set in at the White House because the scandal was consuming so much time and resources.

The president does have the legal authority to disclose that information, said Welch.

Flynn could choose to contest the congressional subpoenas seeking his business records, but legal experts said he would not prevail.

Several officials said Trump had interrupted meetings on other issues in recent weeks to talk about the investigation, and had fumed about Russian Federation and Comey.

And 55% say they believe Comey when he claims that Trump asked him to drop the investigation of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, which Comey said in memos happened during private conversations with the President.

Instead, Chaffetz said, his committee work "will complement the work of the Special Counsel" and shed light on matters of "high public interest".

Citing the hiring of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Thursday the agency is "undertaking appropriate consultation to ensure all relevant interests implicated by your request are properly evaluated".

"It isn't going to be good enough to just offer two sentences and say: 'Hey, there's a special counsel". He was insane, a real nut job, ' Trump said.

The Justice Department has said Sessions had more than 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors a year ago.

Schiff said Wednesday the committee wants any memos or other materials Coats and Rogers might have detailing conversations with Trump on the issue.

'Nothing (is) fully confirmed at this stage, ' Page wrote, adding that if invited, he would also testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but had yet to receive such a request.

"Trump told [Lavrov and Kislyak] that firing Comey, had relieved "great pressure" on him", reported The New York Times" Matt Apuzzo, Maggie Haberman and Matthew Rosenberg Friday.
