Less than a week after Comey's firing, the explosive news cycle continued Monday night when the Washington Post first broke that Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during their meeting at the White House last week.
Ryan told reporters and members of his conference that he wanted to have the facts before judging the memo. "We need the facts", Ryan said.
President Donald Trump declared himself the victim of the "greatest witch hunt" in American political history Thursday and slapped down accusations he tried to quash a probe into collusion between his campaign team and Russian Federation.
"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know: There was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity", he said. Lawmakers of both parties are demanding that Comey testify before them in public, though the time and place haven't been determined.
USA stocks and the dollar sold off and bond prices rallied as investors fled risky assets amid uncertainty about Trump's ability to deliver on his policy agenda, such as tax and regulatory changes. "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president". Now he's being accused of trying to kill an FBI investigation.
A report by News Max is stating that Representative Justin Amash, republican from MI, says Trump should be impeached if it is discovered that he tampered with the FBI investigation into Michael Flynn by asking James Comey to stop the investigation. Trump's attorney general had to recuse himself from the investigation because he failed to disclose his meetings with Russian officials. Comey wrote the memo after he met in the Oval Office with Trump, the day after the president fired Flynn on February 14 for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about the extent of his conversations previous year with Russia's ambassador, Sergei Kislyak.
Asked on his way out of the news conference whether he still retained confidence in Trump, Ryan replied: "I do".
A key issue Mueller may have to tackle is whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice, an offence that could be used in any effort in the Republican-led Congress to impeach him and remove him from office.

Republicans, frustrated by the president's relentless parade of problems, largely sought to cool the heated climate with assurances they would get to the bottom of scandals.
- The House oversight committee set a May 24 hearing on whether Trump interfered in the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, and invited Comey to testify.
Democrats and a number of Republicans said they wanted to hear from Comey, who was sacked last week a day before Trump met in the Oval Office with the Russian diplomats.
Sharing the information isn't against the law, but it is a profoundly risky move that sets back USA intelligence gathering efforts, especially in the fight against the Islamic State. That was followed by a controversial meeting between Trump and high-profile Russian officials. Two members of the Senate intelligence committee, Senator Richard Burr and Senator Mark Warner, commented on the Senate's request. Putin made light of the matter at a news conference in Russian Federation, saying Moscow was ready to hand a transcript of the meeting to USA lawmakers if that would help reassure them.
Asked how Republicans will still get their work done, Conaway said, "Well, you get up every morning, put your shoes on and go to work".
