So is Donald Trump secretly recording conversations or not?

So is Donald Trump secretly recording conversations or not?

President Donald Trump's outside attorney plans to file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey with the Justice Department Inspector General and the Senate judiciary committee, two sources with knowledge of the situation told CNN.

The nation waited with bated breath for Trump to live-tweet during Comey's testimony on Thursday, adding even more potential drama to Comey's dramatic appearance - but the tweets never came. Trump scheduled a joint news conference with visiting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis. Comey replied that he concluded it was because he was refusing to take the clue that Trump wanted him to end the investigation into Russia's interference in the election and the possible collusion with members of the Trump campaign, including Flynn. Trump later contradicted his own staff and acknowledged on May 11 he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation probe.

Trump spent Thursday morning meeting with his secretary of state, secretary of defence and national security adviser, discussing North Korea, the Persian Gulf region and other matters, said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Comey's friends later told CNN that the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director was 'not anxious about any tapes.' One said that 'if there is a tape, there's nothing he is anxious about'.

It has had a major, lasting impact on the conflict between the Jewish state and the Palestinians which remains unresolved to this day.

Questions to Comey ranged from the status of investigations to how many times he met with previous presidents, the interactions he had with Trump, and a wide variety of other subjects.

Despite that happy news (and Comey has confirmed that he did tell Trump that he was not at that time a target of the Russian Federation investigation), Trump said he fired Comey because Comey was "a showboat".

Trump also retweeted a comment from attorney Alan Dershowitz, who had written: "We should stop talking about obstruction of justice". Trump's personal lawyer then suggested that Comey's involvement with the leak might be cause for investigation. But Comey ultimately made a decision to oblige if the president asked.

'I had to call my wife and break a date with her, ' Comey said. I was so stunned by the conversation that I just took in.

The Protestant unionist party also had links with outlawed paramilitary groups during the years of Northern Ireland's "Troubles". Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom where same-sex marriage is not legal, after DUP exercised a veto.

Comey said he was shocked when he learned that President Trump had fired him, saying, "The shifting explanations confused me and increasingly concerned me".

"The big story has always been the assumption of the critics of the president - of his pursuers, you might say - is that somewhere along the line in the past year, the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians".

"It's a great question", Comey replied. 'I was supposed to take her out to dinner that night'.

Many Democrats still blame Comey for Clinton's loss, leading Trump to apparently believe they would applaud him for firing Comey. He also recused himself from the FBI's investigation into Russia's election meddling. Is it that the evidence connecting Russian Federation to Trump is proving particularly hard to find, or is it that the evidence just doesn't exist?

However, the consensus among pollsters remains that May's party, who have been in government since 2010, will win a majority. On the following day after the terror attack that killed seven people, 12 people, seven men and five women, were detained.

Trump has begrudgingly accepted that assessment.
