Trump says he might cancel all 'press briefings'

19 May 2017

"And the former senior FBI official said Comey would never have told the president he was not under investigation - also contradicting what Trump said".

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

Former director of national intelligence James Clapper said Friday that he did not "know if there was collusion or not" between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian operatives working to influence the USA presidential election, saying he was not privy to the details of the FBI's investigation.

Trump also appeared to be unhappy with press reports about shifting White House explanations of Comey's firing.

President Donald Trump's sour relationship with recently axed FBI Director James Comey just got worse.

Why WannaCry ransomware attack is a win-win for Microsoft
Close to 150 countries have been affected by this pandemic, which is infecting older versions of the Windows operating system. In March, Microsoft unveiled a patch to address the issue, but several users are yet to have their systems updated.

Mr Trump has faced a backlash for dismissing Mr Comey on Tuesday.

The FBI chief had confided he was concerned it might compromise his Trump-Russia inquiry, said Mr Clapper.

The White House Correspondents' Association was quick to object to Trump's threat to potentially do away with pressers.

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!" he tweeted. Yes, on the day after firing FBI Director James Comey, President Trump met with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and Henry Kissinger. As senior politics editor Paige Lavender at HuffPost points out, if Comey ever has to testify in the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign's connections to Russian Federation, the president's latest tweets could be seen as "witness intimidation".

"On the dinner with James Comey, does anyone in this White House have an audio recording of what unfolded during the January 27th dinner between the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director and the president of the United States?" he was asked. "I think it's really important that the Congress, and more broadly the American people, hear Director Comey's side of the story".

On Monday morning before the BBC interview he was accosted by reporters outside his home, but he cycled away without a reply. Some patients have had their appointments cancelled or have been unable to schedule a new appointment.

When asked by Pirro about the implications of tape recordings, Trump said "I can't talk about that".

He added, "The Fake Media is working overtime today!"

Later in the dinner, Mr. Trump again said to Mr. Comey that he needed his loyalty. Trump says no; later in the interview he claimed that he wanted the investigation "to be absolutely done properly" and "speeded up".

"Wolf, the I-word that I think we should use right now is 'investigation, ' and we have investigations in the House, the Senate and the FBI, but hurdles keep getting put up for the investigations", the congressman replied.
