In light of the information that has come out on Tuesday regarding Donald Trump asking former FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into Michael Flynn, Republicans now seem to finally be turning towards sanity and justice.
The New York Times reported:
“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.”
With that information being revealed, House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has not only requested, but demanded that all documents concerning Trump and Comey be revealed.
According to NBC News:
“Chairman Jason Chaffetz of Utah sent the letter (PDF) a few hours after The New York Times first reported that Trump allegedly asked Comey to end the FBI’s investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who resigned in February following reports that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.”
Not only that, Chaffetz tweeted that he has his “subpoena pen ready.”
.@GOPoversight is going to get the Comey memo, if it exists. I need to see it sooner rather than later. I have my subpoena pen ready.

Thus showing that he’s ready to move forward.
“Chaffetz said that if the memo exists and accurately recorded the conversation, “that seems like an extraordinary use of influence to try to shut down an investigation being done by the FBI.””
“Chaffetz will also have the support of Democratic members of his committee.
All Democrats on both the Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee sent a separate letter Tuesday demanding an investigation into whether Trump and other top officials “are engaged in an ongoing conspiracy to obstruct” FBI, Justice Department and congressional investigations.”
This may be the nail in the coffin for Trump and his shenanigans. The GOP is now turning on him and now that this has happened, he better start practicing his resignation speech.
