Grassley Seeks Copies of Reported Comey Memos and Possible Trump Tapes

Trump was also asked whether former Connecticut Sen.
The letter from the senators to White House Counsel Donald McGahn, seeks "all White House records memorializing interactions with Mr. Comey relating to the FBI's investigation of alleged ties between President Trump's associates and Russian Federation, or the Clinton email investigation, including all audio recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, or memoranda".
Comey - whom Trump fired May 9 - wrote a memo memorializing a discussion with the president about Flynn and the FBI's investigation, two sources close to the former FBI director who had seen the memo confirmed to NPR.
Asked point-blank if he'd done anything that might merit prosecution or even impeachment, Trump said no - and then added of the lingering allegations and questions: "I think it's totally ridiculous. Zero", Trump said, standing next to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, who was meeting with Trump at the White House, prompting the presser.
Pressed on whether he asked Comey to quash an FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's foreign contacts, Trump grew testy.
He said he respected the special counsel appointment but also said it "hurts our country terribly". Tim Scott, R-S.C. "I do think that the special prosecutor provides a sense of calm and confidence perhaps for the American people, which is incredibly important".
The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for all documents prepared by Comey regarding his conversations with Trump.
He offered new justifications for his decision Thursday, even while referring to the Rosenstein memo as "a very, very strong recommendation".
"That was a poor, poor performance", Trump said. That was the White House's position initially after the deputy attorney general argued in a memo that Comey had erred in handling the FBI's investigation into Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server, even though Trump had praised Comey on the campaign trail past year. "Because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such bad things about director Comey", he said.
And on Tuesday, with that latest report fanning the flames on the growing fallout from Trump's decision to terminate Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced he was appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller to oversee the Department of Justice investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
"We need to get the facts out in the open", Grassley said in a conference call with Iowa reporters.
