The President would have left American students in a foreign jail because their families didn't lavish sufficient praise on him. How can someone in such a big office be so small?feedback

You know, the real challenge, I think, and job for the chief executive, in a country where race has always been such a difficult conversation, is to do everything possible to bring our country together, to help make us a more perfect union. And what the president did this week was as if he stood on a line dividing the country and pushed to separate one America from another with all his might. And that is not what this country

I wasn't aware of it, and I don't think Mr Conaway was either. But the reality is we do want to meet with Mr Steele, would like him to come before the committee. If he's not willing to do that, we'd be happy – Mr Conaway and myself – to go to London to sit down with him. He does have, certainly, very relevant information that would assist our

My initial reaction [to Trump's tweet] was I felt like Bill Murray in Ghostbusters–that I'd just been slimed. After being kind of amused by it, it really distressed me that the office of the presidency had sunk to this. I feel like I'm joining a proud society along with Meryl Streep and the cast of

Jul 14 2017 - Kremlin

Donald Trump, Jr.'s denial of any such meetings, his misleading initial representation that it dealt only with adoptions – a statement evidently approved by the White House – and his later admission that the whole purpose of taking the meeting was to receive the support of the Russian government in the form of damaging information about Hillary Clinton paint a portrait of consistent dissembling and deceit when it comes to the campaign's meetings with Russian officials and

I think they were concerned about being perceived as having interfered in the election and trying to tip the scales for Hillary Clinton. I think they were also concerned about not wanting to play into the narrative that Donald Trump was telling, that the election was going to be rigged, even though Donald Trump was talking about a completely different kind of rigging than foreign

Jun 12 2017 - US, Russia relations

Since the chairman has recused himself from the Russia probe, he shouldn't be signing subpoenas or having any say in subpoenas related to the Russia investigation, but he has not been willing to delegate that authority to [his Republican colleague Mike] Conaway. And so that is a problem that we have raised. It hasn't prevented us from issuing the subpoenas we need to issue, but nonetheless, if he's going to honor his request to step aside, to recuse himself, he needs to delegate that authority to Mr.

The intelligence agencies have been complying with our requests in the Russia probe, I think very completely.

And it certainly took us by surprise, since the agencies have been fully cooperative with us. I don't understand why they were

It is not the [FBI] Director's job to lift the cloud of suspicion over the President's conduct or that of his associates.

This is not a recommendation I make lightly, as the chairman and I have worked together well for several years.
