Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Moscow could provide a recording of a controversial exchange between Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US President Donald Trump that has plunged the White House into turmoil.

Pressure on the White House intensified after Trump fired Comey, who had been leading a federal probe into the matter, and allegations that Trump had asked Comey to end the FBI investigation into ties between Flynn and Russian Federation. Comey was in the Oval Office for a terrorism threat briefing.

In his letter to McCabe, Chaffetz says that the memo raises questions "as to whether the President attempted to influence or impede the FBI's investigation as it relates to Lt. Gen. Flynn".

"We're going to walk and chew gum at the same time". "That gives me confidence and should give the American people some confidence".

"He could have shared what he told us in a public hearing", the senator said.

Why Mr Rosenstein felt compelled to write the memo remains unknown.

"A lot of people don't do that", the Maryland Democrat said.

According to a person close to the White House, Mr Rosenstein was upset about the narrative that emerged from the White House on the evening of May 9.

Also Friday, The Washington Post dropped its own bombshell, revealed that a current White House official who is "close to the president" has been identified as a significant person of interest in the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"The appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller is an overdue but constructive first step in ensuring a proper investigation of Trump Administration ties to Russia and Russian interests occurs within the Department of Justice".

During Thursday's news conference, Mr Trump contradicted both his own account and that of Mr Rosenstein. "I hope you can let this go". "This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey".

Adam Shaw is a political reporter for Breitbart News. Rep. Al Green reiterated the call in a House floor speech on Wednesday after he accused the president of obstructing justice.

Republican Senator John Cornyn said: "Clearly Russia was very much involved in trying to undermine public confidence in our elections".

"We need the facts". We are not the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Department of Justice. "That is what Congress does in conducting oversight of the executive branch".
