A United States House of Representatives committee has considered asking President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to provide documents related to the president’s firing of FBI Director James Comey in May.
The House Judiciary Committee said on Tuesday this week it will consider a resolution of inquiry asking Trump to hand over to the House documents on Comey’s termination, and directing Sessions to do the same.
On May 9, Trump fired Comey who was overseeing the investigation into potential Russian interference into last year’s US presidential election, and an alleged collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russians.
Trump has dismissed the allegations of collusion between anybody close to him in his election campaign and the Russians, describing the reports as “fake news” and calling the probe a “witch hunt.”
Moscow, for its part, has denied any effort to influence the election, as well.
