A news report out says that the former FBI Director was asked by President Trump to let the Flynn investigation go. “I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to a memo written up by Comey shortly after the interaction. Is this evidence that President Trump tried to influence an investigation? This is how it’s being played by the media, Democrats, and increasingly uncomfortable Republicans. Representative Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, is demanding all “memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings” of the meeting. Mr. Trump bragged in the campaign how skilled he was in business. But he’s not turning out to be much of a match for experienced Deep State operatives.
