"Trump feels really, really, really, bad about firing him, and he genuinely thinks if the investigation is over Flynn can come back", a White House official told The Daily Beast. Trump fired Comey last week.
Trump blasted that decision, echoing his Thursday morning tweets and comments he made over lunch with network news anchors that the Russian Federation investigation is a "witch hunt" that "divides the country".
Reporters pressed the Colombian president to comment on Trump's "America First" policy and the proposed southern border wall, but Santos sidestepped controversy by praising cooperation with the USA in ending the decades-long conflict in his country. "Russia is fine, but whether it's Russian Federation or anybody else, my total priority, believe me, is the United States of America". "Believe me. My total priority is the United States of America", Trump said.
Former FBI Director James Comey, who had previously led the investigation, was sacked by Trump on May 9. He also speculaed that Comey may have stayed on, instead of resigning as Trump's Federal Bureau of Investigation director, in order to dig that hole a little deeper. Several members leaving the meeting said the deputy attorney general was aware of Comey's pending termination before he penned the letter to Trump.

Spanish telco company Telefonica and USA delivery service FedEx have also admitted to being targeted. He said this latest attack was a reminder of the importance of good digital hygiene.
"I think it is totally ridiculous", he began.
"There was no collusion", he said. "The FBI has not had that special reputation [after] what happened in the campaign; what happened with respect to the Clinton campaign - and even, you could say, directly or indirectly, with respect to the much more successful Trump campaign".
On Wednesday, a special counsel was appointed by the Department of Justice to oversee the investigation.
The men were memorably cast - mostly via Comey's 2007 testimony - as honorable men standing against government overreach when they talked former President George W. Bush out of pushing ahead the renewal of a controversial surveillance program.

With growing calls from largely Democratic lawmakers that the Trump administration could no longer credibly conduct any investigation into Russian Federation in the midst of Comey's ouster, Mueller was thrust into the picture.
But a report in the New York Times this week that Trump allegedly asked Comey to end the investigation undercut the president's rationale and has led to accusations from some in Congress that Trump was attempting to obstruct justice.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has mocked US news reports suggesting President Donald Trump shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on airplanes.
The White House has denied the allegations of obstruction of justice.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he will not join in with TV debates before the general election unless Theresa May joins him. ICM interviewed 2,024 adults between April 21 and 24.
