Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], June 10 (ANI): House and Senate investigators have triggered off a series of requests after former FBI director James Comey's testimony, and sought for memos of his private discussions with President Donald Trump and any records the White House kept of their discussion, including audio recordings. "The leaders of the House Russia investigation, Reps. Michael Conaway, a Texas Republican, and Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, sent a request directly to Comey for copies of his memos. They sent a separate request to Trump's White House counsel, Don McGahn, for any record the White House had of their meetings," CNN reports. The House requested for the records, including tapes if they exist, by June 23. The Senate judiciary committee sent a request to Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman for Comey's memos. The Senate committee had sent a request for Comey's memos from the FBI on and a separate request to the White House for any records kept by Trump, on May 17. These developments come after Comey testified that Trump asked him to drop an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. Comey repeatedly called Trump a liar to which the latter responded Friday by saying "Comey was a liar." (ANI)
