Comey friend: Trump repeatedly tried to compromise former Federal Bureau of Investigation director

Are Republicans starting to turn on Donald Trump? The answer is partway between

"And Comey - he might have had two motives here". "It is obvious - there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

Also Tuesday, in an extraordinary turn of events, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions with the diplomats.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan cautioned against "rushing to judgment".

The White House initially said that letter prompted Trump to fire Comey, but Trump later said he had already made a decision to dismiss him and was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing". A memo reportedly penned by Comey after a February meeting with Trump suggested the president had asked him to halt a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation.

With Trump only eight percent of the way through its term, his advisers spend their days swapping rumours of mass White House firings.

Republicans and Democrats alike were eager to hear from Comey, who has increasingly emerged as a central figure in the unfolding drama. Trump defended himself against backlash from his critics, the media and Democrats alike during a rambling commencement speech Wednesday at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. "It's special. All over the world wherever you go, the FBI is special", he said, before adding: "The FBI has not had that special reputation with what happened in the campaign, what happened with the Clinton campaign, and even you could say, directly and indirectly with respect to the much more successful Trump campaign".

The top lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee invited Comey to testify in both open and closed hearings regarding the investigation he was heading. Adversity makes you stronger.

Mr Flynn, a retired general, is under scrutiny in multiple federal investigations into financial links to foreign governments and whether he helped Russian Federation interfere in the presidential election. "Russian Federation is fine", the president said. "But it's also important that we hear direct testimony from him that would describe the context, the tone of voice the president used and the actual words that was said".

On Wednesday, the Department of Justice named former FBI Director Robert Mueller to be special counsel investigating Russian efforts to influence the USA presidential election.

Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, requested the documents be delivered by May 24 and said he would subpoena the information if necessary.

The Times reported that Comey wrote in a memo that Trump told him that "He is a good guy".

Republican Senator Pat Toomey wants a Democrat to be nominated to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation because "changes are needed at the White House", a spokesman said, according to the "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette". The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

The White House vigorously denied it all.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow did not have official contacts with Trump's team during the electoral campaign.

"While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", a White House statement said.

Trump is preparing to leave town Friday on his first foreign trip, and aides have been hopeful the journey will be a chance for the administration to get back on track after weeks of chaos and distractions. Tim Scott, R-South Carolina.
