Trump suggests he might drop daily press briefings

But with Spicer out on US Naval Reserve duty this week, speculation quickly began swirling that his substitute - principal deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders - could be under consideration to replace him.

Under Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation concluded that Russian Federation tried to sway the election in Trump's favor through an influence and cyber-hacking campaign.

A senior congressional official with direct knowledge told NBC News that James Comey briefed Congress in recent days that he had requested more staff and money for the Russian Federation investigation from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

When asked about the tweet itself, Spicer said, "I've talked to the president". "He's a showboat, he's grandstander, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been in turmoil", Trump said of Comey.

"In times of turbulence, the American people should see the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a rock of competence, honesty, and independence", he added.

But once he emerged, Spicer refused to be interviewed on camera, telling reporters to turn off the lights, and answering many questions with, "I don't know". If not, he'd best remain quiet because "I think it's my turn now".

"I have long believed that a president can fire an Federal Bureau of Investigation director for any reason, or for no reason at all".

"He's doing a good job but he gets beat up", Trump responded.

Mills, starting his second game in the series at point guard, finished with 14 points and nailed two 3-pointers. He scored just 10 points on 2-of-11 shooting and committed six turnovers. "Everything falls on my shoulders".

"I am troubled by the timing and reasoning of director Comey's termination", he said in a statement. Later in the dinner, Mr. Trump again said to Mr. Comey that he needed his loyalty.

Did the president discuss Rosenstein's findings with Rosenstein?

The White House has so far declined to produce evidence of the three separate occasions the President referenced.

"We now face a constitutional crisis", said Campaign Director Jo Comerford in response to the news.

The White House denied that Trump asked for Comey's loyalty. "But Lavrov called the Obama administration's expulsion of Russian diplomats from the retaliation late past year "pitiful" and a "dirty" trick".

On Tuesday evening, after President Trump fired James Comey as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, obviously a lot of people within the Trump Administration needed to get in front of cameras and explain why the President made a decision to fire the man in charge of investigating his campaign's ties to the Russians.

The decision, a justice department official said, is expected to come this week.

"Right now, on multiple occasions, they said that the president wasn't under investigation".
