Trump signs off on sending Comey memos to Congress

There are not adequate people around Donald Trump to stop his impulsive behaviour James Comey said

Comey's memos, some of which he leaked to a friend for release to the media, influenced Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's decision to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the Russia investigation into Russian election meddling and any ties to Trump associates.

The 15 pages of Comey memos contain new details about interactions he had with Trump in the weeks before his May 2017 firing.

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

There is a "growing body of evidence" that suggests former FBI Director James Comey lied to Congress when he said there was no coordination between the Department of Justice and the FBI while they investigated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said Thursday. "In this brand new letter they highlight how Comey spent 14 minutes back in July 2016 laying out the case for criminal prosecution about Hillary Clinton, but then said 'nevermind'". "Unfortunately, the cover-up continues, the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation are playing shell games and refusing to turn over McCabe text messages in Judicial Watch FOIA litigation".

The release of the memos comes as the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director is on a publicity tour touting his new book, rehashing his interactions with Trump and the events that led to his firing.

One memo recounts a February request from Trump, during a private meeting in the Oval Office, that Comey end an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. He revealed previous year that he had written the memos after conversations with President Donald Trump, who later fired him. The person familiar with the agreement spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the documents had not yet been sent to Congress.

Earlier this week, House Judiciary chair Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia), Oversight chair Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) and Intelligence chair Devin Nunes (R-California) told the Justice Department there was "no legal basis for withholding these materials from Congress".

Justice officials had allowed some lawmakers to view the memos but had never provided copies to the House committees.
