"But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House".

The House Republican leader, Speaker Paul Ryan, said the three probes already under way were sufficient.

"I spoke to him (Lavrov) today", a smiling Putin told a news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. But she said if the process went in that direction, "we expect that odds would increase dramatically of a deficit-financed tax cut as opposed to a controversial tax reform bill".

Matheson said Republicans are growing exhausted with the Trump administration because the distractions are keeping them from reforming government when they control the White House and Congress.

Trump is reeling from a bombshell report in the New York Times that he asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop a probe into ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Cory Gardner added, "The bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has asked James Comey to appear in front of the committee, and they have asked acting FBI Director McCabe for any notes or memos prepared by Comey regarding communication with the Department of Justice and White House on the ongoing Russian Federation investigation". Mark Warner, as well as asking Comey to testify.

But if Comey had gone public in February, the defense from Republicans would have been that Trump just talks like that, and he wasn't trying to obstruct justice, and you shouldn't take him so literally.

A defiant President Trump on Wednesday told a graduating class at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that no politician has been treated more unfairly by the media and advised them "to put your head down and fight, fight, fight" when facing such adversity.

Top Russian lawmakers also have vented frustration and anger over the latest commotion over Trump's relationship with Russia. On Tuesday evening, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) noted that if Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice, then that could and should be considered an impeachable offense.

Citing unnamed sources, the Washington Post had reported that Mr Trump had shared intelligence with Mr Lavrov regarding an Islamic State group terror threat related to the use of laptop computers on airplanes.

Amash's staff declined to comment further.

Trump allegedly asked Comey to stop his investigation into Flynn.

"What else will the people generating such drivel and nonsense think of next?" he said. "The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations".

Putin went on to say that Russian Federation was ready to provide the notes taken at Trump's meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak to Congress, if the White House approves.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that said that Moscow could provide a recording of a controversial exchange between Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US President Donald Trump that has plunged the White House into turmoil.
