A separate letter, addressed to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, sought notes or memos written by Comey about conversations he had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to the Russian Federation investigation.
"We are writing to request that the Oversight Committee and the Judiciary Committee launch an immediate joint investigation into whether President Donald Trump and his top officials are engaged in an ongoing conspiracy to obstruct the criminal, counter-intelligence, and oversight investigations now being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and Congress into members of his presidential campaign and their contacts with Russian officials", they stated.
Senators said Wednesday they want former FBI Director James B. Comey and his replacement, acting Director Andrew McCabe, to return and testify about the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The memo reportedly states that Trump asked Comey to drop the bureau's probe into former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

House oversight committee chairman Jason Chaffetz hopped in front Wednesday, saying that he has scheduled a hearing with Comey for next week - even though he hasn't talked with him yet.
"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Mr. Trump told Comey, according to the memo. "And as I've said so often, we need to get the facts out in the open. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Comey", said a White House official.
Chaffetz also questioned the appointment of a special counsel to take over the investigation into possible Russian interference during the 2016 USA election, which Comey had been leading until he was sacked.
In a separate letter, Rosenstein argued that it was his transgressions over the Clinton email investigation that were the cause of his dismissal, while laying out the reasons for Comey's firing.
