Russian Federation investigation identifies White House official as person of interest

Meanwhile, Comey is set to give evidence regarding Russian meddling in the USA election in an open hearing of the Senate intelligence committee after US Memorial Day on 29 May.

"It is a candid internal memorandum about the FBI director's public statements concerning a high-profile criminal investigation", he said. No date has been set.

He says his memo is not a finding of official misconduct and is not a statement of reasons to justify Comey's firing.

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia and committee vice chairman, said, "Comey served his country with honor for many years, and he deserves an opportunity to tell his story".

Barkley declined to talk when asked about his exclusion after the game. Everton finished in seventh place and booked a Europa League spot.

He then embarked on a vitriolic attack on his former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, claiming Comey had been "very unpopular with most people" who had had "a poor, poor performance in Congress". In his briefings with lawmakers, Rosenstein said that he knew Trump was going to fire Comey prior to writing the memo in question, according to McClatchy.

Democrats said the new stories underscore their belief that Trump fired Comey in order to shut down the Russian Federation probe.

Comey's highly anticipated testimony, which will be slated after the Memorial Day congressional recess, comes after he was sacked by Trump May 9 amid a mounting investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election and possible ties between Trump campaign associates and that country. That comment caused speculation that Trump may have secret recording devices in the Oval Office.

Reports of a memo said to have been written by Comey details the former FBI director's discomfort during a meeting with the president in which he asked Comey to "let it go" in regards to the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. "That's taken off", the president reportedly said. The House Oversight Committee sent a letter requesting the memo referenced in the report no later than May 24.

Former FBI director James Comey, who was sacked by Donald Trump amid an agency probe into alleged Russian meddling in the United States of America election, has agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee at a public hearing. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump was documented saying, the Times reported.

Rosenstein, who on Wednesday appointed a special counsel to investigate possible Russia-Trump campaign coordination during the 2016 presidential campaign, made his appearances before Congress as Trump was preparing to leave for his first foreign trip as president.

Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak at the White House on May 10, one day after firing Comey.

Trump's alleged pressure on Comey - denied by the White House - has exposed the president to accusations of obstructing justice.
