Trump asked Comey to SHUT DOWN Mike Flynn investigation | Daily Mail Online: Memo written by then-FBI Director James Comey after February 14 meeting with Donald Trump describes the president asking him to drop his Mike Flynn probe
The White House denies the claim, saying it's 'not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation'
Comey's memo also described a Trump request to prosecute and jail reporters who report on classified information leaked to them
Just five days ago Trump warned Comey that he might have 'tapes' of their conversations
Now it's Comey on offense, with his associates reading portions of his explosive memo to a New York Times reporter
Sen. Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor that he was 'shaken' by the news and Rep. Nancy Pelosi raised the possibility of 'obstruction of justice'
The federal law against obstruction is purposely broad and could form the basis for an impeachment case against Trump
