House Oversight Chairman on NYT Report: ‘First of All, Let’s See If It’s True’

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – “Well, first of all, let’s see if it’s true,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Tuesday night after The New York Times reported that President Trump asked F.B.I.

Director James Comey to shut down the federal investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security director.

“I hope you can let this go,” President Trump reportedly told Comey, according to a memo written by Comey after the meeting in February.

“This is one where we can actually find out the truth behind it,” Chaffetz told Fox News Tuesday night. “If there are such memos, documentation, we would like to see that from the FBI.”

Chaffetz sent a letter to the FBI on Tuesday, giving the agency one week to produce any notes about Comey’s conversation with Trump. “If true, these memoranda raise questions as to whether the President attempted to influence or impede the FBI’s investigation as it relates to Lt.-Gen. Flynn,” he wrote.

Chaffetz said if needs to issue a subpoena, he will. “But I think they will cooperate,” he added.

“Let's see if the documentation is there, then we need to talk to the person who wrote those -- that would be Director Comey -- and get his take on it.

Was the NYT sighting an anonymous source again...??? Do they have possession of the memo's...??? Or are the NYT just making stuff up again...personally I don't believe a word they say unless they can prove it at the time the crap falls out of their mouth's....Also their are no laws against hoping & wishing for something...

The Devilcrats are totally overloaded with hate for Pres Trump to the point they cannot tell the difference from the truth and a liberal lie. All this hat will come back to haunt them if they Ever get a Pres in office. All of thishate and lies will lead this country into a violet uprising never seen before in this country and the end of the once Great America. Devilcrats are not what they once were as today they are the Communist Party of the country thanking on the roll that was once German Nazi Party and the Russian uprising for Communism in the past. This is what our future holds? God only knows.

One of the MSM had a round table discussion yesterday with one conservative sitting on the panel. He brought up "who are the anonymous sources" and he was literally shouted down by a female liberal who kept shouting, "How dare you attack a fellow journalist?! That is just not done! How dare you go on an attack like that?!" Gees, she literally had her panties in a wad-should have got a Pulitzer Prize. Or maybe a pullet prize. lol
