    WASHINGTON — President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

    I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

    Such documents, Mr. Chaffetz wrote, would “raise questions as to whether the president attempted to influence or impede” the F.B.I.

    Mr. Trump fired Mr. Comey last week. Trump administration officials have provided multiple, conflicting accounts of the reasoning behind Mr. Comey’s dismissal. Mr. Trump said in a television interview that one of the reasons was because he believed “this Russia thing” was a “made-up story.”

    Ahem.
    1) If in fact a Nixon type "demand" was made, then Trump is guilty for obstructing justice.
    2) If the above is true Comey is guilty for covering this up as he never reported it until he was fired.
    3) If Trump "requested" it be put to bed because there is nothing there ( in Trump's personal synopsis) then nothing was done improperly.
    4) if Trump is eventually found guilty, good riddance.
    Pence becomes President. Pence has a better chance of reunifying the party and winning in 2020.
