Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House oversight panel, is seeking copies of memos from James Comey due to a report that Trump asked the now former-FBI director to end his probe into Michael Flynn.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said in a tweet “@GOPoversight is going to get the Comey memo, if it exists. I need to see it sooner rather than later. I have my subpoena pen ready.”
Chaffetz has ordered staffers to draft a letter to the Justice Department seeking the memos.
The move by Chaffetz came hours after the New York Times reported Comey wrote the memo shortly after an Oval Office meeting on Feb. 14, the day after Flynn resigned from the Trump administration.
