Former FBI director James Comey wrote in a memo that he was asked by Trump to end the investigation against national security advisor, Michael Fylnn.
Comey shared his documents with senior FBI officials and apparently commonly documented his conversations with the President. Comey noted “everything he could remember” according to a source close to the officials.
According to a source familiar with this subject matter, the Comey’s memos are likely to be subpoenaed.
The meeting in which Trump put the pressure on former FBI director, was held on February 14, but Comey made note of it all due to how shocked he was by the request.
While Democrats are using this new found information as proof that the President tried to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation, the White House continues to deny allegations.
“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,” said a White House official in a statement.
