"Comey is a leaker!" - Trump fights back against former Federal Bureau of Investigation head's testimony

10 June 2017

Congressional investigators have asked the White House to provide any recordings or notes of conversations between Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey.

Trump's tweet said: "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication. and WOW, Comey is a leaker".

A Department of Justice spokesman denied several claims made by former FBI Director James Comey in a Senate hearing Thursday. But if Trump were to lie under oath, and Mueller and his team were able to prove that subsequently, it would constitute perjury.

Comey's testimony in the most widely anticipated congressional hearing in years will put at centre stage a high-stakes clash between two men with vastly different personas.

Competing Dodd-Frank visions make rollback uncertain
President Trump had said he wants to do "a big number" on Dodd-Frank, and the House vote has moved that effort along. To be freed from some rules, the legislation requires banks to raise hundreds of billions of dollars in new capital.

President Donald Trump (R) and President of Romania Klaus Iohannis (L) meet in the Oval Office of the White House, on June 9, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Comey's one-on-one discussions with Trump were the focal point of his testimony Thursday before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee.

Legal experts questioned whether Trump's private encounters with Comey could be considered privileged, given that Trump had previously spoken publicly about his conversations with Comey, and that he had not invoked executive privilege to block the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief from testifying. He painted Trump as a chief executive dismissive of the FBI's independence and made clear that he interpreted Trump's request to end an investigation into the former national security adviser as an order coming from the president.

"We also were aware of facts that I can't discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a Russia-related investigation problematic", the former FBI director said. He also said that he took it as a "directive" when Trump asked him, in a room he had cleared of a cabinet member and senior advisers, to "let this go" regarding an investigation of Flynn. This is arguably the most moonwalking-ass administration ever in the history of president-ing, so I don't believe anything that the president says.

With President Trump backing out of the Paris Agreements , there was stiff opposition from the rest of the USA against Trump's decision.

Shortly afterwards, a personal lawyer for President Trump returned fire, suggesting the ousted lawman should be prosecuted for leaking "privileged information". Two days after firing him, Trump said it was because of "this Russian Federation thing". "There'd be nothing wrong if I did say it, according to everybody I've read today, but I did not say that", Trump said. I'm not going to say I want you to pledge allegiance. That could serve to rebut Comey's testimony.

Comey said that after his firing he actually tried to spur the special counsel's appointment by giving a damning memo he had written about a meeting with Trump to a friend to release to the media.

"I was sacked in some way to change, or the endeavour was to change, the way the Russian Federation investigation was being conducted".

The top Democrat in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, on Friday repeated a call for Sessions to resign.
