In addition to requesting Comey testify, Whitehouse, Graham, Feinstein and Grassley sent a letter to Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe asking for any Comey memos from his Russian Federation and Clinton investigations that detail his talks with top Trump and Obama administration officials, including Trump, former President Barack Obama, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, and Vice Chairman U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, sent a letter Wednesday asking Comey to testify before the committee in both open and closed sessions.

Following requests by multiple congressional committees for former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's memos of conversations between himself and President Trump, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now requesting the White House turn over any of its any recordings of conversations between the two by May 24th.

The New York Times recently made revelations about Trump's request for Comey to end the FBI investigation into the links between the Kremlin and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Congressional committees in the House and the Senate are also conducting investigations.

The request came after The New York Times revealed on Tuesday the existence of a memo Comey had written showing Trump's attempt to obstruct the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

Flynn was forced to resign one day before the conversation between Comey and Trump, after it was revealed that Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence about connections he had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
