WikiLeaks offers $100k bounty for alleged 'tapes' between Trump and Comey

WikiLeaks offers $100k bounty for alleged 'tapes' between Trump and Comey

Donald Trump said he expects to make a "fast decision" on a replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey, perhaps before he departs the us on May 19 for his first foreign trip as president.

Critics have assailed Trump for abruptly dismissing Comey, who was leading the agency's investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, and possible ties between Moscow and the Trump presidential campaign.

Democrats have pushed for a special prosecutor nearly universally, saying Trump fired Comey to short-circuit the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. But very well known, highly respected and really talented people.

Trump also claimed Thursday that he asked Comey at one point if he was the subject of an FBI investigation, and that Comey said no.

Several candidates were interviewed on Saturday, including New York Court of Appeals Associate Judge and former prosecutor Michael Garcia. And while 61% of respondents said Trump's decision did not change their opinion of the president, 30% of respondents said they had a less favorable impression of Trump now, versus just 6% who said they had a more favorable view.

"Relish the opportunity to be an outsider", Trump said.

Andrew McCabe was the FBI's deputy director until the abrupt departure of his boss. The deputy attorney general was reportedly chagrined that the White House attempted to pin Comey's firing on him.

"I think the process is going to go quickly", said Trump, before delivering the commencement address at Liberty University in Virginia. Russian Federation denies the claims and the White House says there was no collusion.

Some FBI investigators are anxious the Trump administration could try to interfere with probes, including on Russian Federation, by shifting resources and priorities away from counterintelligence investigations, FBI sources tell CNN.

He continued, "Across Washington, Trump's allies have been buzzing about the staff's competence as well as the president's state of mind".
