At a meeting in the Oval Office, Donald Trump asks FBI Director James Comey to end federal investigations into Michael Flynn.

Flynn resigned as Trump’s national security adviser the previous day after lying to White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

The documentation of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia…

Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

Knowledge of this meeting and of Comey’s memos from conversations with the president are revealed to the public a week after Trump fires Comey.
