Donald Trump warns James Comey over 'leaks' in explosive Twitter rant

A sign announces

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy!" Trump's firing of Comey already has left him with the dubious distinction of being the first president since Nixon to fire a law enforcement official overseeing an investigation tied to the White House. The amounts involved in respect of the latter were "immaterial", the letter said.

Across Washington, Trump's allies have been buzzing about the staff's competence as well as the president's state of mind. Later, however, they said that Trump had planned to fire Comey regardless. He said that working with Comey was "the greatest privilege and honor of my professional life".

Mrs Clinton's supporters cried foul when it emerged that the Trump election team was also under investigation by the FBI, but Mr Comey never divulged that until a long time after the election. "I don't know if there was evidence of collusion or not, nor should I have". Trump told Holt that Comey had confirmed he was not under investigation at the dinner and twice on the phone. "Would I personally like that? I'm not talking about anything else".

That's far different from the White House's initial account in the hours after Comey's firing.

Hewitt did critique Trump's suggestion that the White House cease holding briefings. The veiled threat added to the storm over Trump's abrupt firing of Comey on Tuesday. She now works at a law firm. "The president followed it and he made a quick and decisive action to fire James Comey". Adam Schiff of California, said that Trump should hand over any such tapes to lawmakers - or publicly admit none actually exist. If true, that would be a breach of Federal Bureau of Investigation norms against discussing ongoing cases.

Trump loyalists were particularly upset that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., organized a news conference Tuesday and got other Democrats to parrot the same message before a full explanation came out of the White House - despite the fact that the White House controlled every variable of the story.

Pollster Patrick Caddell, a longtime confidant of Bannon who served in Jimmy Carter's White House, said he was pained to watch the Trump White House struggle. Moscow has denied interference in the election, and the Trump administration denies allegations of collusion with Russian Federation.

"The director was wrong to usurp the Attorney General's authority on July 5, 2016, and announce his conclusion that the case should be closed without prosecution", Mr Rosenstein's letter says.

Defence lawyer Alice Fisher was the first candidate interviewed at the justice department, U.S. media report.

The New York Times reported Thursday that during that dinner, Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty. But when he stepped aside for spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, the focus quickly turned back to Trump and Comey.

Trump warned Comey Friday saying he "better hope" there are no "tapes" of the conversations between the two of them.

And she insisted that the details didn't matter. "I don't see it as a conflict of interest", Sanders said. "The president chose to fire Director Comey". But the president made the decision to fire Jim Comey. "He stands by it, as so do the rest of us". "I went off of the information that I had when I answered your question". McCabe promised to tell lawmakers if he comes under any political pressure that interferes with the inquiry.

But Trump blew up that narrative on his own Thursday during his sit-down interview with NBC.

In one of his most memorable morning tweet blasts of his still-young presidency, Trump also lashed out at Democrats and the media, while trying to give Spicer and Sanders cover after a rough week.

The fact Mr Comey had not publicly talked down links between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation was also a source of tension, the Journal reported.

"It is my opinion and belief that the FBI will continue to pursue this investigation vigorously and completely", he said.
