"I don't think we finish those whole conversations until we just know everything, so I just want more information about everything that can come out", the IL lawmaker said.

President Donald Trump can't be stopped from tweeting and otherwise talking about the Russian Federation investigation. "He is a good guy". "You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry".

Rachel Maddow reviews the latest developments in the Trump-Russia investigations, including indications that the Senate Judiciary Committee will issue subpoenas to investigate Donald Trump for obstruction of justice. Mark Warner, committee vice chair.

"The leaders of the House Russia investigation, Reps". James Risch of Idaho.

Kasowitz blasted Comey for leaking information about his private conversations with the president and said it would be left to authorities to determine whether the leaks should be investigated.

"This, for me, is about (something) bigger than what it means for 2018, what this means for 2020 and what this means - this is defending the institution of democracy", he said. "I took it as this is what he wanted me to do". "He said, 'I hope'". If you have to say it, you are already in serious trouble. "He's new to government".

When Comey said they had not, Lankford said the president's language was "a pretty light touch to drop it".

Trump said that in response to this question: "Why [do] you feel that [Comey's] testimony vindicated you when it really boils down to his word against your word?"

Comey said at the moment he was "a bit stunned and didn't have the presence of mind" to protest the president's remark. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, imagined warning Trump, "You may be the first president in history to go down because you can't stop inappropriately talking about an investigation that, if you just were quiet, would clear you".

That's no small charge: when a sitting president effectively says the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation committed perjury, it requires some follow-up.

"I'm calling for an end to the investigations about President Trump's campaign colluding with the Russians", said Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), during an interview with "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace.

Common sense, Comey said, told him Trump was "looking to get something (for) granting my request to stay".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking member of Senate Judiciary Committee, and a veteran lawmaker with a reputation for an understated demeanor, said on Twitter yesterday, "Release the tapes, Mr. President!" Then, he added, he didn't use the word loyal but pledged he'd be honest with Trump.
