Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said he plans to meet with former FBI Director James Comey today and will pursue any records of meetings between President Trump and Comey.

The meeting would be the first between the pair since Comey was fired on May 9 under suspicious circumstances, Bloomberg reports.  [1]

The deposed former FBI director is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee sometime after Memorial Day on May 29.

Chaffetz is looking for documents about meetings between Comey and the president, especially after the former FBI director said he kept meticulous memos on the conversations.

“It’s important to remember nobody’s actually seen these documents,” Chaffetz said on Sunday. “There’s been an awful lot written and said about it, but I don’t even know that the Department of Justice has them. Maybe Director Comey has them. I don’t know where they reside. I don’t know if there are documents. But we’re certainly pursuing them.”
