Trump Won't Release Meeting Transcript, So Putin Says He Will


Instead, the White House press office released an emailed statement denying Comey's version of events.

Democratic politicians have been making the case for impeachment across the mainstream media ever since Trump's interview last week with NBC News's Lester Holt, when he said the decision to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director was his alone and that he was considering "the Russian Federation thing" when he handed down the dismissal directive via a letter delivered by the president's longtime security guard. "Each member of Congress has to make his or her decision".

The Russian president dismissed reports that Trump shared classified intelligence with Moscow.

He and other Russian officials have portrayed such stories as an internal US political issue.

Flynn, as well as former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, are emerging as the subjects of the ongoing investigation into Trump campaign official's ties to Russia and possible collusion with the Russian government.

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said he would ask Comey for additional material as part of that panel's investigation. "Memos, transcripts, tapes - the list keeps getting longer", he said. "He is a good guy". This has become a national security threat to us in and of itself,"he explained".

Trump and Comey in January. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the president's comments were "wholly appropriate".

"It's hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next", said Putin.

Vladimir Putin offered Wednesday to help settle the controversy over claims President Trump shared classified intel with Russian diplomats.
