"I hope you can let this go", Trump said to Comey, according to Comey's memo on the conversation. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., voting no as well.
The tax legislation now goes to a House-Senate committee, which will try to reconcile the versions passed by each chamber. And frankly, last night was one of the big nights.
