"...This Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story", the President said last week, explaining his decision to fire Mr. Comey as the Federal Bureau of Investigation director on May 9. "It is obvious there are some people out there that want to harm the president, but we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House", Ryan told reporters.
Ryan says a House committee has "appropriately" requested a Comey memo describing a February meeting he had with Trump.
Ryan raised questions about Comey's account of that meeting. "It is time for you to let us know where you stand", he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has lashed out at USA politicians whipping up what he described as "anti-Russian sentiment" for being either "stupid" or "dangerous".
Putin dismissed the US politicians, whom he did not identify, as either being "stupid" or "dangerous and unscrupulous" who are wittingly "causing the damage to their own country". "We need to get to the bottom of it and on the broader question people have asked about where does this all lead, I think the we ought to keep our focus on finding out the facts in the first instance and no one ought to, in my view, rush to embrace the most extraordinary remedy that involves the removal of the president from office". Staffers and aides inside the White House are also frequently quoted in stories.

Putin joked that that he would reprimand Lavrov because "he hasn't shared those secrets with us".
Russian President Vladimir Putin then responded, saying that no classified information had been shared with his officials.
"If this is true, it is disconcerting and it opens up a new chapter of scandal and controversy in this country", Curbelo told NBC News Tuesday of reports that President Doanld Trump urged Comey to drop his investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
"The Americans implied that their Israeli colleagues should "be careful" as of January 20, Trump's inauguration date, when transferring intelligence information to the White House and to the National Security Council (NSC), which is subject to the president", Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
The White House issued a furious denial after the notes were disclosed late Tuesday, near the end of a tumultuous day spent beating back potentially disastrous news reports from dawn to dusk. "The President must be impeached", Green said.
