On Thursday, the Justice Department sent Congress redacted, unclassified memos written by former FBI Director James Comey detailing private conversations he had with President Trump, and someone in Congress almost immediately shared the documents with The Associated Press. The Republican chairmen of the House Judiciary, Intelligence, and Oversight committees had demanded the memos. In one memo, Comey said that Trump had confided he had major concerns about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's judgment, and in another, he wrote that Trump said he was told by Russian President Vladimir Putin that his country has "some of the most beautiful hookers in the world." Late Thursday, the chairmen released a joint statement, claiming the memos show Trump "wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated."
