The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein came out Sunday morning against President Trump, who said Friday he would be willing to testify under oath to refute claims made Thursday (also under oath) by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.
Feinstein referenced testimony Wednesday before the Intelligence Committee by DNI Director Dan Coats and NSA Director Mike Rogers.
She also urged the Judiciary Committee to use its subpoena power "in those cases where we do not receive cooperation".
Former FBI Director James Comey could have to return before Congress, as The Hill reports several leaders on the Senate Judiciary Committee are considering issuing him a subpoena.
She even added that she wants to determine whether U.S. President Donald Trump asked Coats or Rogers to take any action on the Russian Federation investigation.
Trump fired Comey last month.
Trump denied that he had asked Comey for his loyalty, though, adding, "There would be nothing wrong if I did say it".
President Donald Trump has welcomed Romanian President Klaus Iohannis to the White House for talks.
"I'll tell you about that sometime in the very near future", Trump said.
Following Thursday's Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in which Comey testified that he had asked his friend to leak the conversation details, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman confirmed to reporters that he was that friend and then disappeared, the New York Post reported.
The move would mark a dramatic escalation of their effort to dig into Russia's election interference and potential ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had discussed the idea of compelling Comey to testify before them. I have observed him the longest.
Iohannis says he's honored to be at the White House.
