"I think it's reaching a point where it's of Watergate size and scale, and a couple of other scandals that you and I have seen".
Former White House counsel John Dean said Wednesday he was not sure whether former FBI Director James Comey's memo was proof of obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, but he noted President Richard Nixon's impeachment offenses in 1974 included interfering with the agency. "The longer you delay, the longer it's going to last".
Those scandals have rocked the White House recently, and has further alienated Republicans in Congress who already appeared to be having a hard time working in sync with the Trump administration to move legislation.
"We have to get to the bottom of this", Kasich told CNN. Shortly after the news broke, House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffez (R-Utah) requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation hand over any documents detailing communications between Trump and Comey.
The associate has also confirmed that Trump asked Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to leave the room before discussing Flynn. Walters delivered the memos to Alexander Haig, then Nixon's chief of staff, who told Nixon that allowing Walters to testify before an upcoming hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee would help damage Dean's reputation.
"He says there's a difference between "'Hey, Flynn's a good guy, it would be nice if you cut him a break" as opposed to "I'm the president.
Remember: Just because Democrats call something a scandal, doesn't make it so.
The memo states that Trump asked his former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to end his probe into Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation. White House officials denied the story but refused to answer specific questions.
Other Republican members of Arizona's congressional delegation have remained silent on the Comey memo.
The Post report says Trump revealed highly classified information about Islamic State militants to Lavrov and Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, during a meeting at the White House last week.
