Trump allies come up with the wrong response to the Comey bombshell


Either claim on its own - that he divulged top-secret information to Russian FM Lavrov during an Oval Office meeting, or that he pressed Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to drop a probe into ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn - would plunge any White House into serious crisis. Comey was in the Oval Office for a terrorism threat briefing.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer did not dispute the summary, saying in a statement that pressure applied by Comey had affected the President's diplomatic efforts with Russian Federation regarding Syria, Ukraine and the Islamic State.

"We're going to walk and chew gum at the same time".

The letter came after the Intelligence Committee made a similar request for Comey's memos.

Steelers release long snapper Warren after failed physical
Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official website confirmed Green's release, adding it came "with the designation failed physical ". He had 28 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Week 17 action for the Eagles and was waived on May 4.


"A lot of people don't do that", the Maryland Democrat said.

"He learned the president's decision to fire him and then he wrote his memo with his rationale", Senator Durbin said.

Comey's memo - an apparent effort to create a paper trail of his contacts with the White House - would be evidence that president has tried to influence the investigation. According to Trump, he did so specifically because of his dissatisfaction with Comey's investigation into the Russian Federation scandal.

During Thursday's news conference, Mr Trump contradicted both his own account and that of Mr Rosenstein. "I also got a very, very strong recommendation, as you know, from the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein".

Robert Mueller takes Russian Federation case as criminal investigation
Asked if he'd ever done anything that would merit impeachment, Trump said, "I think that's totally ridiculous". There has never been anything like it. "We're going to have a director that's going to be outstanding".


Ten days before the inauguration, Flynn had a conversation with Susan Rice, former national security adviser for President Barack Obama, about the Pentagon's plan to retake Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic state. He called the suggestion he had done anything potentially worthy of criminal charges "totally ridiculous".

"Though Mr. Mueller is well respected, ultimately our nation needs an independent commission that is free from politics and takes the Trump Administration out of the equation". The President's anger contrasted with a more measured written statement released by the White House on Wednesday evening, when Mr Trump declared that a thorough investigation would find "no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity". Mr Rosenstein was "unequivocal" that the panel can and should continue its investigation, according to people familiar with his remarks.

"We need the facts".
