Trump denies urging former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief to drop Flynn inquiry

Trump denies urging former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief to drop Flynn inquiry

The remarks will be Trump's first live, on-camera remarks since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein tapped Robert Mueller to be a special counsel overseeing the Justice Department's Russian Federation probe.

Trump responded by tweeting that as president, he had the authority to disclose whatever he'd like.

The investigation into his campaign's possible collusion with Russian officials, Trump said, was the last thing he wanted to focus his attention on.

Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday mocked U.S. news reports suggesting President Donald Trump inappropriately shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on aeroplanes.

"Trump feels really, really, really, bad about firing him, and he genuinely thinks if the investigation is over Flynn can come back", a White House official told The Daily Beast. The White House had said Mr. Trump made the decision to fire Comey only after receiving the recommendation from Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I don't think I'm in a position to give any advice to President Trump". Former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman was seen as the front-runner.

The FBI is also investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, which many believe to be the reason Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week.

Turkish ties hit rough patch after rough Erdogan visit
Last year, Turkish security officials manhandled several journalists at a Washington think tank where Erdogan was set to speak. Nine people were injured in the violence, some of whom were kicked and stamped while on the ground.

That means he can issue subpoenas, present evidence to a grand jury and bring charges - all the powers of a federal prosecutor.

Markets have been roiled by the uproar in Washington on the risk that Trump's plans for tax cuts and infrastructure spending will get stalled while the controversies played out.

But Republicans in Congress are trying to soldier on if Ryan has anything to say about it.

Trump referred to Comey's testimony at a recent Capitol Hill hearing after which the Justice Department ended up having to amend part of his testimony regarding last year's probe of Hillary Clinton's email practices.

The deputy attorney general notified the White House of his decision to name a special counsel only after he signed the order designating Mueller for the job. All that was in the last seven days. He leaves Friday (May 19) for meetings in Saudi Arabia and Israel followed by summits with US Nato allies and with other leaders of the world's major economies. Not only did he remain loyal to President Trump, he indicated he and the president were still in communication.

The campaign on Thursday said that it generated US$314,000 online, mostly through small donations.
