Chaffetz Ready to Subpoena James Comey Memo

Chaffetz Ready to Subpoena James Comey Memo

Some congressional investigators want to bring former FBI Director James Comey to the Hill to tell them about his meetings with President Donald Trump - but they can't find him.

Authorities said Russian Federation meddled in November's election to benefit Trump.

As chair of the oversight committee, Chaffetz has played an active role in the Congressional investigation of President Donald Trump's potential links to Russian Federation.

Even Jason Chaffetz, the Republican who chairs the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation asking for any notes or recordings that Comey may have kept of his conversations with Trump.

Later, the Senate judiciary committee whose subcommittee is also investigating Russian meddling into the USA election, requested that the FBI "provide all memos relating to former FBI Director Comey's interactions with his superiors in both the Trump and Obama administrations", according to a statement.

These fans will be happy to know that on Wednesday the ninth Star Wars movie-release date was announced for May 24, 2019. A tense argument between the pair is then thought to take place, setting up a major conflict early on in the film.

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee also planned to ask Comey to testify, The Hill reported.

The committee also asked the White House to "provide records of interactions with former Director Comey, including any audio recordings", an apparent reference to Trump's suggestion that tapes might exist of his conversations with Comey.

Mark Warner, D-Virginia, sent a letter Wednesday asking Comey to testify before the committee in both open and closed sessions. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, on Wednesday said the committee planned to invite Comey to testify during a public hearing next week.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate, said Tuesday Trump's alleged request the FBI quit investigating the former national security adviser "appears to cross the line into the obstruction of justice". "But I still need to speak with him...evidently has a new #", Chaffetz tweeted.

British gamblers believe Trump is now more likely to leave office before the end of his first term than not, British bookmakers said yesterday, after a week of tumult at the White House.
