May 16, 2017 Comey Memo Reveals Trump Tried to End Flynn Investigation

The New York Times reports that following former National Security Adviser Flynn’s resignation in February 2017, Trump urged then FBI Director Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn.  Trump told Comey, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.”  According to the memo, Trump said, “He is a good guy.  I hope you can let this go.”  During the same meeting, Trump also condemned leaks to the media and suggested that Comey should consider jailing reporters for publishing classified information.  The White House has denied this version of events.
