GOP lawmaker raises option of impeaching Trump over Comey

"Comey had the foresight to write that email and then, when he left the DOJ, to print it out and put in into the file and hold onto it until four years later, when The New York Times went to write about his", said Miller.

The river of congressional concern over Trump's actions turned to a flood after House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, a Trump loyalist, demanded Tuesday that acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe produce within a week all information it has related to the Comey-Trump meeting at the White House.

"My view is that there are a lot of pieces coming together", said Peter Zeidenberg, a former public corruption prosecutor. Chaffetz said Wednesday he was inviting Comey to appear before the committee when hearings begin May 24.

Striking a defiant stance, he added: "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

Russian President Vladimir Putin says that Moscow is prepared to provide a record of a White House meeting in which U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly shared classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The development comes as the Trump administration faces questions over why and how the president fired Comey last week as the FBI was investigating whether Trump's presidential campaign was connected to Russian meddling in the election. "It's reaching Watergate size and scale", Mr McCain said previously at a dinner for the International Republican Institute. He said he would give the Federal Bureau of Investigation a week and then "if we need a subpoena, we'll do it".

"Last week, the President tweeted a message implying that the White House may have recordings of interactions with Mr. Comey", wrote the ranking members of the committee, seemingly referring to Trump's May 12th tweet warning about "tapes" of conversations with Comey.

The White House has denied any improper conduct. Mr Flynn was forced to step down form his post in February after it was revealed that he had misrepresented a conversation he had with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.

The members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who sent the letters - Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) - asked McCabe to provide them with any documents "memorializing interactions [Comey] had with Presidents Trump and [Barack] Obama, Attorneys General [Jeff] Sessions and [Loretta] Lynch, and Deputy Attorneys General [Rod] Rosenstein, [Dana] Boente, and [Sally] Yates regarding the investigations of Trump associates' alleged connections with Russian Federation or the Clinton email investigation".

"Obstruction of justice in the case of Nixon, in the case of Clinton in the late 90s, has been considered an impeachable offense", Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) said on CNN Tuesday night, while cautioning that he wants to know the facts before suggesting impeachment was on the table. He is a good guy.
