President Donald Trump pushed ex-FBI director James Comey to scrap the investigation into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn's Russia ties, the New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times cited a memo consisting of Comey's notes from his conversation with Trump. James Chaffetz, Republican chairman of the House oversight committee, said on Tuesday he will seek copies of Comey's memos. We'll talk with UC Berkeley political scientist Thomas Mann and Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky about the latest news out of the White House and about whether the president may have obstructed justice.
