Burr: No evidence so far of Trump campaign-Russia collusion

19 May 2017

Trump said in an interview with NBC that the Russian Federation investigation factored into his decision to fire Comey.

As Trump works to fast-track Comey's successor, lawmakers from both parties urged him to steer clear of any politicians for the job and say he must "clean up the mess that he mostly created".

The White House said on Thursday that Trump encouraged the Justice Department to complete the ongoing investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the November 8 election.

"I actually asked him, yes".

After the victory, Sobral and his sister attended the press conference at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv. This year there were no nil pointers but Portugal's neighbor Spain was the unlucky last place finisher with 5 points.

"I'm not aware of that being a standard practice", McCabe said of an FBI director hypothetically telling the president or anyone else if they're the target of an investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation probe and parallel congressional investigations have clouded Trump's presidency since he took office on January 20, threatening to overwhelm his policy priorities. "You know, it depends on how you define loyalty, No. 1; No. 2, I don't know how it got out there because I didn't ask that question". I won't talk about that. "I'm not under investigation".

"America First does not mean America alone", McMaster said, referring to Trump's Inauguration Day promise to priotize America's interests.

Spicer also denied reports that Trump solicited a loyalty pledge from Comey during their dinner earlier this year.

U.S. presidents are normally at pains to avoid any suggestion of interference or even commenting on ongoing investigations. The FBI typically does not confirm their existence.

Those people also describe him as deeply frustrated by what he views as unfair media coverage - irritation that emerged in a separate tweet in which he suggested he may shut down the regular press briefings at the White House.

Asking such a question "would come close to bribery... or at least obstruction of justice, which Comey would've had to be an idiot to fall for by offering the assurance sought", Tribe said.

Despite Campaign Promises, President Trump Sticks To Iran Deal
However, Washington also separately extended wider sanctions relief for Iran called for under the nuclear accord. This may be meant to "undercut the impression that Trump is softening on Iran", The Associated Press wrote.

"I don't see it as a conflict of interest", Sanders said.

These reasons contradicted the White House's assertions - and even the widely disseminated termination letter Trump sent Comey - that the dismissal was based on the recommendations of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who criticized Comey's handling of the email investigation into Hillary Clinton a year ago.

"If so, we request copies of all recordings in possession of the White House regarding this matter", they said. "He's a showboat, he's a grandstander".

In fact, Trump wants investigators to get to the bottom of Russian involvement in the election, Spicer said, including debunking the "false narrative" that the Trump campaign was somehow involved. "Instead, Mr. Comey has recounted to others, he told Mr. Trump that he would always be honest with him, but that he was not "reliable" in the conventional political sense", the Times reported. "All of the agents involved in the investigation are still in their positions".

The FBI has never had a female director.

"Director Comey enjoyed broad support within the Federal Bureau of Investigation and still does today", he told the committee.

Gisele Bundchen Says Husband Tom Brady Suffered Concussions in 2016
The league also said that they are working on gathering more information from the club, medical staff and Brady himself. But he does have concussions. "I don't really think it's a healthy thing for your body to go through that".

The Republican senator from Texas is the Senate's second-ranking member. US intelligence agencies concluded in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign of interference in the election aimed at tilting the vote in Trump's favor. His name was floated as a possible replacement for then-FBI Director Robert Mueller in 2013, and he received support from an association of FBI agents before President Barack Obama chose Comey.
