According to the Times story, which has now been confirmed by several other outlets, Comey's memos allege that the president once asked him to halt his investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser and campaign staffer who is suspected to have close ties with Russian Federation.

Asked what he thinks of the Trump presidency, Mr Putin said it is up to the American people to judge but his performance can only be rated "only when he's allowed to work at full capacity", implying that someone is hampering President Trump's efforts. In a press release on Green's website, he specifically called out the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating possible ties between Russian Federation and Trump.

"We've tried tonight to get Republicans to come out and talk to us, and there are not Republicans willing to go on camera tonight as of yet", host Bret Baier said.

Ryan told reporters Wednesday that Congress "can't deal with speculation and innuendo".

"I think we've seen this movie before", the Arizona Republican said at a dinner to receive the International Republican Institute's Freedom Award.

"Amid all the noise and distractions emanating from the Oval Office, no one on Capitol Hill is hitting the pause button on tax reform and we believe it is premature to argue a Constitutional crisis will kill tax reform until 2019", Peter Cohn of Height Securities said in a Wednesday note. "And that means, before rushing to judgment, we get all the pertinent information". "And we'll see if that changes". But given the bombshell news events since Ryan last went before the Washington press corps almost two weeks ago, the questions did not focus on the major legislative effort he's trying to pursue.

Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who oversaw the investigation into Hillary Clinton's conduct during the Benghazi attack when she was secretary of state, sent a letter to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to release Comey's notes on the conversation when Trump made the request about Flynn.

The White House has played down the importance and secrecy of the information President Trump gave to the Russians, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement. "This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey", the statement said.

Leaving their meeting Wednesday, a number of conservative House Republicans said they and their constituents remained firmly supportive of the president, and they questioned why there are so many leaks coming out that are hurtful to Trump. CNN confirmed the details of that memo.

Trump fired Comey, not yet four years into his 10-year term, last week and admitted later he was thinking about the Russian Federation investigation when he made the decision. "Because that could be considered a crime, and as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he had an obligation to make that known". He faced similar questions on Friday when he appeared at an event in Wisconsin, just hours after Trump put out a string of headline-making tweets.

"But we're a long way away from anything like that", Mr. Kasich, a strong critic of the President, said, of impeachment. "I hope you can let this go". "Those are the things that are within our purview in Congress".
