Trump has repeatedly tweeted about the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race - notably since he fired Comey, who had been investigating whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russian officials to help influence the election.

In the initial moments after Comey's firing, Trump's press secretary, deputy press secretary and Vice President Mike Pence all said Trump's decision was based on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

One law enforcement source said Comey's actions were sometimes the subject of debate among agents, but most respected him as a leader and believed that "his decisions were made with good intentions".

McCabe said that the FBI will not update the White House on the Russian Federation investigations and promised to tell Congress if the White House tries to interfere. The New York Times reported Thursday that Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to the president and that Comey refused.

Trump said it is "possible" that the new Federal Bureau of Investigation director will be announced before he leaves for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
