Trump warns ex-FBI director Comey about 'leaks' in explosive Twitter rant

  • Odds of Donald Trump getting impeached slashed after he sacked James Comey

Trump's displeasure with Comey has escalated rather quickly.

The announcement comes amid growing scrutiny from lawmakers and the media over Trump's decision to remove former FBI Director James Comey from office as the bureau investigates potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The White House also changed its narrative about whether the president had chose to fire Mr Comey based on the recommendations by Mr Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Sessions forwarded Rosenstein's memo to Trump and recommended that he remove Comey from his role. The tweet speaks for itself.

The White House also shifted its stance on whether Comey's termination had anything to do with the Russian Federation investigation, at first saying it was not linked.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the top Justice Department official at the center of the firestorm over the firing, will provide a briefing to the entire U.S. Senate after requests from Capitol Hill.

"The president has nothing further to add on that", Spicer repeatedly said, rejecting the notion it was any kind of warning.

The disorderly firing process and shifting rationales have shredded what was left of this White House's credibility. "That was a DOJ decision".

"Oh I was going to fire regardless of recommendation, " he told Holt. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the deputy press secretary, filled in for him.

Mr McCabe said he would refrain from discussing the Russian Federation investigation with the White House, pledged to report to the committee any efforts to interfere in it, and said the dismissal of the director would do nothing to impede the probe. He made it. He moved forward. "No, he just gets beat up by these people, and again you know they don't show the 90 questions that they asked and answered properly".

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are reportedly changing their Facebook profile photos to pictures of James Comey - or pictures of them with Comey - to show their support for the sacked Federal Bureau of Investigation director. She has stuck to her story despite acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe's testimony directly contradicting her remarks. Then he suggested doing away with the daily press briefing, the one place almost every day where his staff can respond to critiques, correct misinformation, and push a positive message.

The timeline directly contradicted the White House's assertion that the president had acted exclusively based on the recommendations of Rosenstein and Sessions.

During the interview Trump said he had been previously told by Comey that he was not under investigation, a total of three times, Trump said.

HOLT: You had made the decision before they came into your office (ph).

"I was going to fire Comey". Trump told Pirro that he thinks it is a "good idea" to not have press conferences, making the suggestion for the second time in one day.

"I said: 'If it's possible, would you let me know: am I under investigation?'" And the Democrats like him, Republicans like him.

Comey has not publicly discussed any conversations he has had with Trump. It's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won.
