US Deputy AG Unlikely to Appoint Special Prosecutor in Russia Probe

19 May 2017

-Adam Lee, special agent in charge of the FBI's office in Richmond, Va.

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

Tapper reported earlier in the week that Trump had fired Comey because he refused to pledge his loyalty to him and due to the Russian Federation investigation. And he said he feared the world would no longer take Trump at his word. Mark Warner (D-VA) affirmed that it was, but said "he won't be testifying on Tuesday" as he was invited to do.

Other candidates include former NY police commissioner Raymond Kelly, former Republican senator Kelly Ayotte, and South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) also called for a special prosecutor this past week.

When pressed, Trump threw his Justice Department and spokespeople - who had maintained the cover story for two days - under the bus.

Pirated Windows led to WannaCry's spread in China and Russia
Then there's the USA government, whose Windows hacking tools were leaked to the internet and got into the hands of cybercriminals. Users who are vulnerable to attack use older versions of Windows, including Windows XP that the company no longer supports.

"Let them do it", Trump said.

Clapper and Schumer made their comments on CNN's "State of the Union"; Graham spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press"; Haley and Warner appeared on ABC's "This Week" and Warner also spoke on "Fox News Sunday" along with Lee and Holmes.

March 20, 2017: Comey testifies at the same hearing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department have no information to back up Trump's unsubstantiated claim on Twitter that Obama wiretapped him before the election. But he wound up creating new headaches for the White House, including with an apparent threat to Comey.

First, it contradicted not only what the attorney general said in 2016, but Donald Trump's many public statements about his confidence in Comey.

Rosenstein, it turned out, authored the memo that was used, the Times said, to "justify the firing of Mr. Comey". Trump said Comey wanted to have the dinner because he wanted to stay on in the job.

Saudi says Trump visit to bolster security, trade ties
Talks between Israel and the Palestinians have stalled in recent years - the most recent round fell apart in April 2014. Secretary of Defense James Mattis will accompany Trump for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting and dinner.

Spicer was responding to questions on a tweet by Trump early in the morning.

Even before Trump's provocative tweet, the White House was scrambling to clarify why Comey was sacked.

He tweeted, "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy!" This week, a senate committee undertaking its own investigation asked the US Treasury for detailed financial information on transactions of Trump, his family, and his associates. A report by Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman of The New York Times this week has revived some questions about the notoriously edgy press secretary's job security, and named a potential challenger for the gig. The senators said the meeting had been scheduled before Comey's ouster to discuss "deconfliction" - keeping the FBI's and committee's investigations of alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government from stepping on each other's toes. Russian Federation denies the claims and the White House says there was no collusion. She also served as deputy special counsel to the Senate special committee that investigated President Bill Clinton's Whitewater scandal.

"I've talked to the president".

"I was going to fire Comey", Trump said.

WikiLeaks was a major player during the presidential campaign, releasing emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton aides, as well as Clinton's Wall Street speech transcripts, but it was resoundingly silent about the Republican Party or Trump. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Republican Senator John Cornyn, New York Appeals Court Judge Michael Garcia and former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher will be interviewed on Saturday for the post, an administration official said. She would be the FBI's first female director, if chosen by Trump and subsequently confirmed by the Senate.
