Comey: GOP's 'criminal allegations' against him are false

Those encounters include a Trump Tower discussion involving allegations of prostitutes and Russian Federation; a White House dinner at which Comey says Trump asked him for his loyalty; and a private Oval Office discussion where the ex-FBI head says the president asked him to end an investigation into Flynn.

Yates is under scrutiny, along with Comey, McCabe, Lynch and former acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente, for their connections to the compilation of the anti-Trump dossier authored by Christopher Steele, which the Federal Bureau of Investigation used to renew surveillance warrant applications to spy on Trump campaign official Carter Page.

The redacted documents were sent over on Thursday evening to the chairs of the House Judiciary, Oversight and Intelligence committees.

Former FBI director James Comey arrives at a Barnes & Noble book store to speak to an audience Wednesday, April 18, 2018, in NY.

News of the referral comes less than a week after Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz issued a scathing report concluding that McCabe allegedly mislead internal investigators and former FBI director James Comey about a 2016 Wall Street Journal piece on an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Eshwarappa, the party's leader in the state Legislative Council, also filed his nomination from Shivamogga Assembly segment. Before the elections in the state, it is considered to be very important to meet Amit Shah to Shukumar Swami.

Horowitz's business office has really sought to ascertain whether such escapes influenced Comey's decision 11 days just before the election to announce the reopening of their Clinton e-mail investigation.

"Here's the issue. If they are going to go after people like [former national security adviser] Michael Flynn for a false statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on really a tangential fact that wasn't material to any criminal offenses, but yet, you have the deputy director. lying under there going to be a similar case brought against him or do we have two different sets of rules for people?"

In the book, Comey describes Mr. Trump as "untethered to truth", and Mr. Trump's leadership style as "ego driven and about personal loyalty".

Boyd writes that the department "consulted the relevant parties" and concluded that releasing the memos would not adversely affect any ongoing investigations. He revealed a year ago that he had written the memos after conversations with President Donald Trump, who later fired him.

The Justice Department has agreed to provide three House committees with copies of several memos written by former FBI Director James Comey, according to a person familiar with the agreement. The president approved the transmission after reviewing the recommendations from top Justice Department officials, Garrett reports.
