According to a BOMBSHELL by the New York Times, Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn in February.
Comey wrote in a memo shortly after the meeting that Trump told him “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” the report said.
The meeting reportedly took place one day after Flynn resigned.
Comey’s memo was part of an effort to create a paper trail documenting Trump’s influence on the investigation.
Comey’s memo says he did not respond to Trump about the probe, but agreed with him that Flynn is “a good guy.”
The White House denied the memo’s version of events in a statement to the Times, writing: “This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey.”
