"I think the process is going to go quickly", Trump said. He wanted to have dinner because he wanted to stay on.

IL 8th District Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi has requested President Donald Trump turn over to the House Oversight Committee any recordings of conversations with recently fired FBI Director James Comey.

"So I don't know if there was collusion or not", said Clapper.

After four months in office, President Donald Trump has become distrustful of some of his White House staff, heavily reliant on a handful of family members and longtime aides, and furious that the White House's attempts to quell the firestorm over the FBI and congressional Russian Federation investigations only seem to add more fuel. Warner broke the news during an MSNBC interview on Friday afternoon, adding that he hoped Comey would still eventually testify so Americans will be able to hear his side of the story.


Dismissing the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation at a time when the agency probes alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election has overshadowed Trump's push to boost jobs through tax reform and a massive infrastructure program.

President Donald Trump has offered additional insight into his thinking about former FBI Director James Comey.

The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Richard Durbin, went further on Friday and said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should appoint an independent special prosecutor to pursue possible criminal charges in relation to Comey's firing, although he did not specify if he meant such charges should be against Trump.

But the Comey version, according to associates who spoke to the media, is that Trump summoned him to the White House and the FBI Director found it impolitic to decline the invitation.


"U.S. President Donald Trump gestures while attending a “celebration of military mothers" at the White House in Washington, D.C., on May 12, 2017.

"Here in Pennsylvania we know all too well the damage done when people lose faith in the justice system", Shapiro said, adding that "no one is above the law". "The more that a broken system tells you that you're wrong, the more certain you should be that you must keep pushing ahead". The White House disputed that account. "Instead, Mr. Comey has recounted to others, he told Mr. Trump that he would always be honest with him, but that he was not "reliable" in the conventional political sense", the Times reported. "It was not." Trump said to NBC's Lester Holt.

The first candidate to arrive was Alice Fisher, a high-ranking Justice Department official in the George W. Bush administration.

The president's original dismissal letter to Comey indicated that he was being fired for his handling of the Clinton email probe.
