He said he would release a record of the meeting to the US Congress if they requested it. Several Democratic politicians have since called for the president's impeachment, including Texas Congressman Al Green, who made the call for a House inquiry on the floor of Congress Wednesday morning.

Despite the insistence of White House officials that he was sacked at the recommendation of the Justice Department over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email affair, the president himself told NBC's Lester Holt that he had already chose to get rid of Comey because "this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".

"The American people can make up their own minds, and the chips can fall where they may". And he is a member of the Democratic minority, which has little power to move ahead on investigations or to begin proceedings to remove the president from office. A president who believes that reporters should be criminalized for holding government to account is a president who brazenly disregards the bedrock principles of the First Amendment.

Putin told a news conference that he would be willing to turn over notes of Trump's meeting with the Russian diplomats if the White House agreed.

The Senate intelligence committee first requested from the Federal Bureau of Investigation copies of his memos, said the panel's top Democrat, Sen. Bill Cassidy and U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, R-Port Barre; and U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson, R-Bossier, did not grant interviews.

Vladimir Putin has waded into the growing row surrounding US President Donald Trump and his links to Russian Federation.
