It’s pretty warm in Toronto but it’s a lot hotter in Washington.
The U.S. Senate intelligence committee wants former FBI director James Comey to appear before the panel in both open and closed sessions.

The committee’s also asking Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to give the committee any notes that Comey might have made regarding discussions he had with White House or Justice Department officials about Russia’s efforts to influence the election.

Comey reportedly wrote a memo after one February meeting at the White House stating that the president had asked him to shut down the FBI’s investigation of ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn.

If there is such a memo, it would be an apparent effort to create a paper trail of his contacts with the White House, would be evidence that president’s tried to influence the investigation.

Political strategist Mike Van Soelen of Navigator Ltd. was asked by Zoomer Radio’s ”Fight Back” with Libby Znaimer if this is the ”straw that breaks the camel’s back.”
”I don’t think we’re at that point yet but the pieces of the straw on the camel’s back are growing.  And this is a significant one.  It does feel different.”
Van Soelen adds he does not believe it’s reached the point where Congress triggers impeachment hearings, but points out fellow Republicans are becoming increasingly nervous.
House Republican Justin Amash of Michigan says it could be grounds for impeachment … saying ”if the allegations are true … everybody … gets a fair trial … whether it’s the president or anyone else.”
Meanwhile, the president told graduates at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut no politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly than him.
