Trump Pledges To Move Swiftly To Nominate New FBI Chief

15 May 2017

"If there are any tapes, they have to be turned over", Mr.

Forty-six percent of Americans, including 74 percent of Democrats, say they agree with the statement that Trump fired Comey to slow down the FBI investigation of Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.

"Trump is so desperate to appear dominant, he will rush to take the credit for anything, no matter how bad it is", Oliver snarked. His tweet warned Comey that he had "better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Trump is "frustrated, and angry at everyone", one source told Axios, and said that the president is also upset with Cabinet officials, like commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, attorney general Jeff Sessions, and health and human services secretary Tom Price.

Cho Yoon-je, one of new President Moon Jae-in's economic policy advisers during his recent campaign, will travel to Germany. Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada speculated that it was probably a new model and reached a height of some 2,000 km.

Capping the week, on Friday Trump threatened the man he fired as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, tweeting, "James Comey better hope there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press".

Sen. Lindsey Graham says President Trump needs to stop tweeting and talking about the investigation into Russian meddling in the USA presidential election.

For a White House accustomed to bouts of chaos, Trump's handling of Comey's firing could have serious and long-lasting implications.

He also said Sunday that Trump firing Comey was "very disturbing" and "unacceptable", while acknowledging he doesn't know exactly what the president was thinking. The truth is that they can't keep up with him because, amid all the Twitter arson he's guilty of, he's kept them out of the loop on major decisions like the Comey firing, then grossly contradicted them after they've developed a message in his defense. Still, Priebus was among the tight circle of staffers Trump consulted about Comey's firing. He's viewed even senior advisers suspiciously, including Bannon and Priebus, when stories about internal White House drama land in the press.

Watch It! - Celtics at Wizards
Avery Bradley did the heavy scoring lifting, going off for 14 of his playoff career-high 29 points in the first quarter. Game 6 is Friday night in Washington , where the Wizards easily won their two games.

Trump is "mulling expanding the communications team and has eyed hiring producers from Fox News", said an unnamed White House official.

Trump spent most of the week out of sight, a marked change from a typically jam-packed schedule that often includes multiple on-camera events per day. (Presumably that's a reference to Guilfoyle, but what about Hannity?) Feeling beset on all sides, crippled by the perceived incompetence of his communications team, and distrustful of people like Priebus and Bannon who only became strong allies during the campaign, he's reaching back to his pre-candidate days to find loyalty - Ivanka, Jared, Hicks, Schiller, and of course his friends at Fox News, the most doggedly Trump-loyal outlet on television.

According to the AP report, sources within the Trump administration that enjoy personal contact with the president assert that he "increasingly sees himself as the White House's only effective spokesperson".
