Rep. Chaffetz’ letter to FBI could be very bad news for Trump
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has sent a letter with a demand to the FBI that could spell a lot of problems for President Trump – it asks for all communications produced between former FBI Director Comey and the president to investigate alleged obstruction of justice.
The request follows upon a report from the New York Times claiming the former FBI Director had documented an interaction in February where Trump allegedly told him to stop the investigation into Mike Flynn’s ties to the Russians.
“Today, the New York Times reported former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey memorialized the content of phone calls and meetings with the President in a series of internal memoranda,” the letter read.
