Two days later, Trump left his surrogates out to dry when he stated he was determined to fire Comey "regardless of recommendation", and that he had considered "this Russian Federation thing" before making the decision.

Chaffetz and Cummings appeared together in April to announce that they believed Flynn likely broke a federal law by failing to obtain USA government approval to accept foreign payments and failing to disclose them afterward. "Prove it", Schumer said.
