Would Trump request to end Flynn probe have broken law?

"It is obvious there are some people out there that want to harm the president", Ryan told reporters at a news conference.
The White House denied that Trump ever asked Comey or anyone else to end any investigation.
Democrats say reports that the president asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop a criminal investigation into one of his former top aides amount to obstruction of justice, if true.
While the Europeans are deeply unsettled by news that Trump shared secret information with the Russians - and without the consent of the ally that provided it - they are too dependent on cooperation built up over decades to even think of cutting off intelligence.
One question is now gripping much of the U.S.: Did President Donald Trump commit a crime in his first month in the Oval Office? And if those other memos do come to light and show similar exchanges with Trump, that's going to be very hard for the White House to combat in the court of public opinion. Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. "Each member of Congress has to make his or her decision".
European governments preparing for a looming round of major summits with Donald Trump are resigned to the fact that they will just have to learn to deal with a US president whom they see as increasingly erratic.
They also said they have written to Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, "seeking any notes or memorandum prepared by the former director regarding any communications he may have had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to investigations into Russia's efforts" to influence the 2016 elections. "I rise today Mr. Speaker to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice". Mark Warner, as well as asking Comey to testify. "You can still see blood on the floor here for what it cost them to get that through the House", Himes told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" in an interview from the U.S. Capitol. Don't give in, don't back down.
If the Republican Florida senator had gotten angrier during the debates a year ago, he might have been president. Those allegations are already very much in the news thanks to Trump firing Comey - the man leading an investigation into his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation - last week.
John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said late on Tuesday that the developments had reached "Watergate size and scale".
The Times pointed to that famous incident back during the George W. Bush administration when Comey testified that there had been a race to reach the bedside of an ill Attorney General John Ashcroft as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and senior White House officials fought over warrantless wiretapping.
ABC News has not seen the memo, and Comey has not commented on the matter.
The news that Trump might have leaked classified information to the Russian government, as the Washington Post reported Monday, was perhaps the first time in his scandal-soaked presidency that Republicans on the Hill did not immediately rise to Trump's defense.
The "things that have swirled around this White House" - from allegations that Trump shared classified information with the Russian foreign minister to Trump's firing of Comey amid an FBI investigation into the president's associates - are what Kasich feared when he refused to endorse Trump, the OH governor said.
President Trump fired Gen Flynn on February 13, on the grounds that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russians.
