Trump denies that he requested Comey end investigation into Flynn


This week, the New York Times published excerpts from a memo Comey wrote, indicating that Trump had asked for the FBI to drop its investigations into Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser who resigned amid a previous bout of Russia-related scandals.

He also said he thought that Comey's firing would be bipartisan.

The poll found that a 50 percent of respondents disapproved of Trump's decision to dismiss the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, while only 36 percent approved of the move.

Comey has been in high demand in the two weeks since Trump abruptly fired him, reportedly for pursuing an investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged ties with Russian Federation.

The man tasked with investigating possible meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election - a probe that will likely encompass President Trump's recent firing of FBI Director James Comey - once called Comey "one of the finest people I've ever met".

Mr. Trump called his meeting with Santos "productive", as he said future meetings will be.

During a speech at the Coast Guard Academy commencement Wednesday, an aggrieved Trump aired his mounting frustrations, declaring that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly". "You can't let them get you down, you can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

"As President I wanted to share with Russian Federation which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline safety", he defensively said in two postings on his Twitter account.
