Comey invited to testify at House Oversight Committee hearing

The request was made after The New York Times reported that Comey detailed in a memo a conversation he had with Trump a day after former national security adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign. 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. The FBI is investigating to determine whether Trump or his associates colluded with Russian Federation, although no evidence to support the allegation has surfaced.

"We do not have that problem", said a Senate intelligence committee source. "We can't just rely upon selective leaks and reports".

"We are writing to request that the Oversight Committee and the Judiciary Committee launch an immediate joint investigation into whether President Donald Trump and his top officials are engaged in an ongoing conspiracy to obstruct the criminal, counter-intelligence, and oversight investigations now being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and Congress into members of his presidential campaign and their contacts with Russian officials", they stated.

This is the latest effort in a newly invigorated push from congressional Republicans to investigate the scandal-plagued White House.

The Judiciary Committee letter to the White House mentioned the Times article, saying "the article alleged that Mr. Comey had memorialized a conversation with the President in which the President made statements that have been interpreted as asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to clear Mr. Flynn of alleged wrongdoing".

The Senate Intelligence, Senate Judiciary and House Oversight panels have also issued requests for Comey's memos.
