"It's important to remember nobody's actually seen these documents", Chaffetz said on Sunday. In an interview on ABC's "This Week", the Utah Republican, who will step down from Congress next month, said he had not yet spoken directly with Comey.

Chaffetz has asked the former FBI Director for any notes or other memos about conversations he had with President Trump before his firing. The FBI is also investigating.

The deposed former Federal Bureau of Investigation director is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee sometime after Memorial Day on May 29.

Since Comey's dismissal on May 09, the Trump administration has faced a barrage of criticism and never-ending questions regarding the decision and whether it was made in any relation to slow down or completely halt the FBI's investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

"I don't know how to read it except that, I'm almost speechless because I don't know why someone would say something like that", McCain said, adding that the United States of America president should never have met with the Russian officials. Maybe Director Comey has them. "We're certainly pursuing them, and I hope we find them sooner rather than later".

Rubio said he wouldn't use the term "witch hunt" to characterize the investigation as Trump has.

"And that's what has to be before the American people clear and distinct", Feinstein said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

Comey had also declined to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which also extended him an invitation to testify, according to that committee's chairman and ranking member. Think about what you say.
