India-born former top U.S. federal prosecutor Preet Bharara has claimed that there is enough evidence to begin a case against President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice over his alleged interference in the Russian Federation probe.
"The call came in".
Bhara waved off claims from Trump's GOP allies, such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, who have said the PResident's authority to fire an Federal Bureau of Investigation director is proper justification.
"To this day, I have no idea why I was sacked", said Bharara, who stressed he was not alleging a direct connection between his refusal to speak to Trump by telephone and his subsequent dismissal.
Bharara said Trump called him twice during the transition and once after the inauguration.
And on "Fox News Sunday", Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said that she believes the president's version of events over Comey's - but then she speculated. "But he was not the president".

According to ESPN, the brothers picked up the cornerback and they were off on the four-hour ride. Enter Packers super fans Chad Johnson of Eau Claire and Mike Johnson of Hudson.
Though Bharara conceded Comey might have not have chosen the best way to release his notes, he had "felt a little bit like deja vu" about Comey's interactions with Trump and how his firing played out, tracking closely with his own just a few weeks before.
Bharara's comments came on the heels of Comey's testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, in which the former bureau chief admitted he had leaked the details of a memo about his meeting with Trump in which the president appeared to suggest the investigation into Flynn should be dropped.
He also argued that Trump knew such outreach was problematic. Bharara was one of the 45 attorneys who were asked to resign earlier this year by the Trump administration.
"There is absolutely evidence to begin a case", Bharara said on ABC's "This Week". "But that's a conclusion I'm sure the special counsel will work toward, to try and understand what the intention was there and whether that's an offense". Good prosecutors look at everything.
