On Wednesday, May 17, all 34 Democratic Members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the House Committee on the Judiciary sent a detailed letter to their respective Republican Chairmen outlining their demand for an immediate investigation into the actions of President Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and top White House aides.
House oversight committee chairman Jason Chaffetz hopped in front Wednesday, saying that he has scheduled a hearing with Comey for next week - even though he hasn't talked with him yet.
The Justice Department announced Mueller's selection late Wednesday a day after the disclosure that former FBI Director James Comey wrote in a memo that Trump pressured him to shut down an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. In the other letter, the committee asked McCabe for "any notes or memorandum" Comey prepared about any communications he had with senior White House or Department of Justice officials about Russia-related investigations.
Republicans, meanwhile, have continued asking questions about the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server previous year.
Chaffetz has refused to initiate probes into potential financial conflicts of interest in the Trump White House, as well as into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's cozy ties to Russian Federation.
"And in fact when I made a decision to just do it I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won, ' " Trump said in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt after the dismissal.
"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Mr. Trump told Comey, according to the memo. "This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Comey", said a White House official.
Chaffetz rose to national prominence as a public face of GOP efforts to probe Clinton's activities in advance of the 2016 election.
