Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. is challenging President Donald Trump to prove he didn't try to stop a federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, The Hill reported.

"Providing the Congress the tapes and the memos may be the only way for this administration to credibly make a case to a justifiably skeptical America public about its version of the story ... The president says what Comey said was wrong. Prove it," Schumer said.

The New York Times reported Trump tried to get James Comey to end his investigation into Flynn during a February meeting, according to a memo the then-FBI director said to have written.

Administration officials have denied the report. Now, Schumer is telling them to provide the necessary information to prove it wrong, according to the Hill.

"If Trump is right, he'll have no problem releasing memos, tapes, transcripts that collaborate his story," Schumer said. "But if he fails to release them, the American people will justifiably tend to side with Mr. Comey, not what the president had to say."

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has already said he intends to review Comey's memo.
