Trump warns sacked Federal Bureau of Investigation director, Comey, against leaks

19 May 2017

Donald Trump branded ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey a "showboat" yesterday, an attack that was swiftly contradicted by the agency's acting chief who pledged the FBI's probe into possible ties to Russian Federation would proceed with vigour.

The president suggested on Twitter that there could potentially be recordings of private conversations he had with Comey in the White House raising questions about whether his meetings are recorded in the White House. A member of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee investigating Russia's attempts to influence our election, we'll talk to Sasse about what he calls a "crisis of public trust in this country", and his new book, "The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis - and How to Rebuild".

Democrats and the media have continued to fault the timing for Mr. Comey's sack following ongoing investigations into alleged collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the November 8 presidential election. "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".

On "Special Report ", Krauthammer said Trump likely did nothing illegal, but instead committed a blunder. The embattled president has a love-hate history when it comes to leaks.

But according to Comey's associates, Trump requested the dinner, and pressed him to pledge his loyalty. "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!"

"Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???" In the NBC interview on Thursday, Trump said he would have fired Comey regardless of any such recommendations.The White House has said Comey's firing was unrelated to the Russian Federation probe.

Since Comey's departure on Tuesday, Democrats across the board have urged Republicans leaders to appoint a special prosecutor, arguing Trump's firing was linked to Comey's widening probe of Trump's campaign, and dubbing the move Nixonian.
