Comey not anxious about possible Trump tapes

Comey not anxious about possible Trump tapes

He's simply stated a fact.

Trump has revealed he asked Comey on three occasions whether he was a target in a probe into alleged Russian election meddling, stoking allegations of presidential interference.

Clint Watts, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent, said on MSNBC that Trump's tweet threatening to leak conversations with Comey is causing government officials to say they can't trust the President's judgment. "If I get called to the White House, I'm going to take my attorney that works at my agency and another agent with me". Since then, a lot of controversy has surrounded the president's decision.

He added, "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???"

"Yes, that's true", Trump said.

Trump addressed questions over the timing in his interview with Pirro, arguing that there was "no right time" to fire Comey.

Trump said an agreement struck with China will allow the U.S.to sell its beef and other major products to that country once again. "And he made a decision based on that", Sanders said in an interview with MSNBC.

Chinese complaints come despite worldwide recognition of the destabilising effect both Iran and North Korea have. United States officials have declined to give a timeline for when the Iran review would be complete.

The White House said Mr Comey was sacked over the FBI's mishandling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices.

Ousted FBI Director James Comey will not testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday about the circumstances of his firing, as top members of the panel had invited him to do. "I hope", added Trump in the Fox News interview. "Did he order Comey to end the investigation?"

Trump also said that he'd asked Comey on three separate occasions, twice by phone and once over dinner, whether the FBI was investigating him.

Two close associates of Comey told the New York Times on Thursday that during a January 27 dinner, Trump had pressed Comey to pledge his loyalty.

While speaking to reporters on Air Force One Saturday, President Donald Trump explained that he could nominate a replacement for now-former FBI Director James Comey sooner than anyone may have thought.

The Trump administration is defending the comments that have been made by the president and his aides regarding the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
