"It's important to remember nobody's actually seen these documents", Chaffetz said on "This Week" in reference to the notes Comey reportedly kept of his conversations with Trump.

During an appearance on ABC's "This Week" Sunday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz slammed anonymous leakers who have hurt the Trump administration by giving information to the press.

Chaffetz, the Utah Republican who heads the committee, tweeted late Monday afternoon that he "Spoke with Comey". According to Chaffetz, he plans on discussing several issues with Comey, including the recent claim made by one of Comey's associates to the New York Times, that President Trump asked Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Tensions rose last week when The New York Times reported that Trump once called Comey a "nut job" and that his firing relieved the president of the mounting pressure he faced over the Russian Federation investigation.

Mr Cummings's letter came the same day Mr Flynn declined to provide documents to the Senate Intelligence Committee, citing his Fifth Amendment protection from self-incrimination.


Trump's firing of the director in the midst of the FBI's investigation into suspected Russian tampering with the election, possible collusion with the president's campaign and related matters, touched off a firestorm of criticism from both sides of the aisle.

"I hope that's not true", Chaffetz said.

"Director Comey served his country with honor for many years, and he deserves an opportunity to tell his story".

The top senior members of the Senate intelligence committee said they would "vigorously pursue" the evidence of Mr Flynn despite him invoking the Fifth Amendment. "Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it", Warner said. Think about what you say.
