On Sunday Schumer also said he would like to clear up the matter of whether Trump does indeed have tapes of his conversations with Comey, as the president has suggested.

The Russia "cloud" is growing over President Donald Trump and threatening to wreck another week for the embattled White House as one of his closest allies tries to avoid a public spectacle on Capitol Hill.

The leading Democrat in the Senate on Sunday invited President Donald Trump to tell his side of the story about his contentious relationship with former FBI Director James Comey, as well as shed light on the ongoing probe into Russia's suspected meddling in the general election.

The first lady has said she wishes he would give up tweeting. "Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'"

Trump has publicly disputed some of Comey's version of events, including allegations that he asked Comey to potentially drop an investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Comey's recounting of a private White House dinner where he allegedly asked for "loyalty".

And it comes a day after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a letter that he would be appearing before the committee on Tuesday to answer questions raised by Comey's recent testimony.

The president also took a swipe at the news media and Democrats Sunday morning.

Two sources familiar with what Comey said in the closed door gatherings told NBC News about the confirmation. "There is an opportunity to look at the law with respect to obstruction of justice, to hold a hearing, and also to have those relevant people come before the Judiciary Committee".

Conway stressed that Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in the Senate dining room a few years ago and did not think anything of it. Just days later, former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed to oversee the investigation. "You end up with the only crimes being found in some investigations are those that are committed during the investigation itself and have nothing to do with the original offense under investigation", Hume said.

Trump's allies attempted to move the national storyline away from Russian Federation on the Sunday talk shows, arguing that Comey's testimony about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to call the Hillary Clinton email investigation a "matter" was more compelling.

Soon after, Chuck Schumer issued a public challenge: "President Trump: if you disagree with anything the Director said today, play the tapes for all of America to hear".

Comey testified that the FBI investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign did not extend to Trump himself during the time Comey was leading the FBI.
