Trump Warns Comey, Blasts Media, Asks 'When Does It End' on Russian Federation

Trump Warns Comey, Blasts Media, Asks 'When Does It End' on Russian Federation

When questioned about the statement that the director informed the president he wasn't the subject of an FBI investigation, Trump told Holt that Comey informed him over dinner.

Spicer did not respond to question that whether the White House taped the conversation between Donald Trump and James Comey, which the president was referring to.

Donald Trump is denying recent reports that he asked for former FBI Director James Comey's loyalty a few days after he was sworn in as president.

Asked, then, if the president thinks "it's appropriate to threaten someone like Comey", Spicer said, "I don't think, that's - that's not a threat".

The top Senate Democrat said Rosenstein had asked to meet with him when the deputy attorney general visited Capitol Hill Thursday to discuss the Senate Intelligence Committee's ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the USA election with that panel's top two members.

Trump tweeted, "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

"In fact, when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story; it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won", Trump said. Trump's tweet came the morning after he asserted Comey had told him three times that he wasn't under FBI investigation. "That would be flawless".

Press aides have repeatedly insisted that Mr Trump chose to dismiss Mr Comey on the advice of Rod Rosenstein, the U.S. deputy attorney general.

The White House also changed its narrative about whether the president had made a decision to fire Mr Comey based on the recommendations by Mr Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The president said a new director could be named by Friday, the day he departs for his first presidential foreign trip.

When asked whether he could announce a nominee by Friday, when he is scheduled to leave for the Middle East and Europe on his first trip overseas as president, Trump responded, "Even that is possible". He later said he was "not aware" whether any White House official had recordings of the conversation and wouldn't comment on whether the president regularly recorded conversations in the Oval Office. A sad moment for even this White House.

Wednesday: "He did have a conversation with the deputy attorney general on Monday where they had come to him to express their concerns".

Spicer declined to say whether canceling briefings was a real possibility. "He's a showboat, he's grandstander, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been in turmoil", Trump said.

In a separate development, the Associated Press is reporting that Trump's lawyers have released a letter saying a review of his tax returns over the past 10 years did not show "any income of any type from Russian sources", with two major exceptions.
