Trump says he did not ask Comey for his loyalty

13 May 2017

Trump not only fired Comey, but appeared to issue a public threat Friday morning to release "tapes" of their conversation if Comey were to speak to the press.

Warner added that Comey "is going to tell his side of the story" once "the appropriate time and place" are figured out.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, principal deputy press secretary at the White House, has been holding daily press briefings this week while Sean Spicer is fulfilling his Navy Reserve duties at the Pentagon - the timing of which was scheduled before Comey's firing. The FBI director also dismisses the president's tweets alleging that Obama ordered Trump Tower to be wiretapped during the election. "I would find that very inconsistent with what I know of Jim Comey", Clapper told MSNBC, adding it would have been "out of character for him to ask to stay on". "That's clearly an impermissible question". Amid conflicting accounts of the Comey firing, Trump also suggested canceling White House news briefings and said it may be better to provide written responses to questions. The White House initially cited a Justice Department memo criticizing Comey's handling of last year's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails as the impetus. Trump said there was no "collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians", and that "the Russians did not affect the vote".

"So, either Trump's own account of the discussion is true, in which case he's guilty of obstruction of justice", Mr Tribe said.

Sanchez's goal keeps Arsenal's top-four PL finish alive
The former Manchester City boss has no new injury concerns apart from long-term absentees Ibrahim Afellay and Stephen Ireland. Mark Hughes' men are also unbeaten in their last six home games against Arsenal , a run that stretches back to February 2010.

"Either way, as with the first article of impeachment against Richard Nixon, this is a series of high crimes and misdemeanors", Mr Tribe said.

Mr Spicer later said that the president had not asked for a pledge of loyalty. Comey, even if he were inclined to, couldn't say: "'You're cleared'".

Ousted FBI Director James Comey will not be testifying before Congress on Tuesday, Sen.

After a meeting earlier this year with the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Trump announced that Cummings had called him "one of the great Presidents in the history of our country".

NBA Executive Thinks James Harden Might Have Been Concussed Vs. Spurs
The Spurs took the win 114 to 75 Thursday night, sending them to the conference finals against the Golden State Warriors. One of the key players for San Antonio was Jonathan Simmons , the guy who started in place of Leonard.

In an angry early morning tweet storm, Trump warned that "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Trump referenced the allegation that he coordinated with Russian hackers in an NBC interview, saying it was one of the reasons he chose to fire Comey, following a recommendation from Rosenstein.

The president was no kinder to Comey on Thursday, calling him names and saying he'd left the Federal Bureau of Investigation in "virtual turmoil".

The FBI probe and parallel congressional investigations have hung over Trump's presidency since he took office in January and threaten to overwhelm his policy priorities. But he also said, "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".

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spotted kissing
Vanity Fair wrote that for a British royal couple, the "first polo-match outing together-that means... everything". Born in Los Angeles, she is best known for her role on legal drama " Suits ", in which she plays Rachel Zane.

Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.
