Comey Hid Among White House Curtains to Avoid Trump


Given that Comey reportedly made a habit of taking notes, the committee also asked the FBI for any notes Comey took from interactions with former President Barack Obama, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, regarding the Clinton email investigation or Trump associates' alleged ties to Russian Federation.

Lavrov's recounting of the White House talk skipped over the part that raised the most alarm - that Trump allegedly not only discussed the terror threat, but also revealed the USA learned about it from an Israeli intelligence source, potentially compromising the security relationship between the two nations.

Also Wednesday, in an extraordinary turn of events, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to turn over to Congress records of Trump's discussions with the diplomats.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has refused to say whether such recordings exist. Gen. Jeff Sessions recused himself after news reports revealed he had failed to disclose in his Senate confirmation hearing that he'd had meetings with Russia's ambassador to Washington.

But according to Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck , the team already seems set on what to do with that prized pick. He's 6'5 with a lot of athleticism, and NY might take him because his game is an ideal fit for the triangle.


On May 10, Trump fired Comey and said in several subsequent interviews that he had chose to remove him months ago.

"It's true, I get the impression, that many USA media are working in this vein", he said.

Under the law, Mueller will have authority to choose his own staff and request his own budget from the Justice Department.

Mueller will decide the scope of his inquiry - for example, whether it will include a federal grand jury in Virginia that has subpoenaed documents involving Michael Flynn, who served as Trump's national security advisor until he was forced out in February for lying to officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, about his conversations with the Russian ambassador.

That could worsen if the Malloy administration lays off state employees in response to state government's chronic budget deficit. The U-6 rate for Washington through the first quarter 2017 was 10 percent compared to the national rate of 9.5 percent.


The White House has denied reports that Trump pressed Comey to drop an investigation into Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. The House Oversight and Government Reform and Senate Intelligence committees have already requested any Comey memos.

In a speech in Baltimore this week, Rosenstein said he didn't spent much time worrying about the controversy.

"I think in the light of day in a public setting he should be able to tell us about the materials, if they're there, and I question whether or not they're actually there", Chaffetz said.

The investigation stems from the work Flynn did for Inovo BV, a Dutch company owned by Alptekin, the Turkish businessman. Not only did he remain loyal to President Trump; he indicated that he and the president were still in communication.
