"I don't think we're there yet", Arizona Sen.

"I guess you could argue that stuff like [acquisition reform] is bipartisan, and it can press on regardless of that, but yeah, I am concerned that when it comes to budget, when it comes to some of the other things, that it makes it harder", Thornberry said.

Trump came under strong fire following revelations that he revealed intelligence secrets, which were obtained from an ally, when he met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak at the White House last week. According to the story, Comey documented the conversation in memos.

March 20, 2017: Comey testifies to Congress that the FBI has been investigating possible links between Trump associates and Russian officials since July, the same month he held an unusual news conference to discuss the investigation into Clinton. The Flynn investigation was part of a broader probe into Russian interference in last year's presidential election.

Republicans in the House and Senate are giving Democrats there wish and asking former FBI Director James Comey for the memo he took of a meeting with President Donald Trump, but there's one catch. Why isn't it likely that Trump was saying "let it go" in the sense of "finish it"?

Citing anonymous officials, US media reported on May 15 that during his May 10 meeting with Lavrov, Trump had disclosed highly classified information received from a USA ally - reportedly Israel - about a planned operation by the extremist group Islamic State (IS). If the official in question is the president, then the chief justice of the US Supreme Court is the presiding judge, otherwise it is the vice president in his role as president of the Senate.

Freeland said she expects the administration to send its notice soon announcing the upcoming renegotiation of NAFTA. Although top aides on Monday had declared reports about Trump's discussions false, National Security Adviser H.R.

More questions: Why did Mr. Comey not alert his superiors about Mr. Trump's comments on the Flynn investigation?

REPUBLICANS TO TRUMP: We will do our very best to put up with your tweets, shenanigans and general tomfoolery in service of that goal. Angry over the steady stream of leaks from within his administration, he suggested that Comey jail journalists for publishing classified information and expressed his hope that the FBI director would drop the ongoing investigation into Flynn.

Donald Trump's beleaguered White House was rocked Tuesday by a pair of explosive allegations - that he personally tried to quash an FBI investigation, and that he disclosed highly classified information to top Russian officials.

"If these interactions really happened the way they are detailed in the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's notes, then why didn't Congress and the American people know about this sooner?" "You can weigh in at", Green said.

May 16, 2017: A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Comey wrote in a memo after a January 27 dinner with the president that Trump had asked him to shut down the FBI investigation into Flynn. First, as NPR reported, Comey's memo needs to be published in its entirety, so there can be no doubt as to its contents. Really, if a freshman can refuse to spin for the White House, why can't lawmakers with years of seniority in no danger of losing their seats?

Trump's plea on Flynn's behalf - perhaps it was prompted by the belief that his aide was a "good guy", perhaps by fear about what goods that good guy might have on him - is the mirror image of his debate pronouncement that "if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation".
