Trump just conceded he was lying about why he fired Comey

In his own letter to Comey, Trump indicated that his firing had nothing to do with Clinton and everything to do with the investigation into possible collusion between Trump campaign officials and the Russian government.

"I actually asked him", Trump said.

While Warner called the meeting a "productive session", he told reporters he still had concerns about Rosenstein in terms of his exact role in Comey's departure. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said that while he couldn't be certain the request triggered Comey's dismissal, he said he believed the FBI "was breathing down the neck of the Trump campaign and their operatives and this was an effort to slow down the investigation".

When pressed about the administration's previous narrative that Trump was operating under the recommendation of the Justice Department, Trump reiterated that the decision came from him.

NBC broke into the network's regularly scheduled programming to report on Holt's interview with the President, who has come under fire in recent days.

He also reportedly said he wanted it to move ahead without pressure from the White House . "I said we'll consider it". Warner said he was offended at Trump's remarks.

"There were folks within our agency who were very frustrated about the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case, and some of them were very vocal about that", McCabe said.

Burr said he hoped that openness would continue under acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who appeared before the committee on Thursday.

Within the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the firing of James Comey has left raw anger, and some fear, according to multiple officials. Trump's comments demonstrated his striking deviation from that practice.

Trump abruptly relieved Comey of his duties Tuesday. Comey found the allegations confounding, according to his associate, and wondered what to make of what he described as odd thoughts coming from his new boss.

He said Comey made that assurance twice more in phone conversations.

"I strongly support President Trump's decision to fire James Comey for gross misconduct during his tenure, and only wish he had done so on January 20th".

"That was just another one of the many reasons that he no longer had the confidence of the president or the rest of the FBI", Sanders said.

"I'll tell you this", Trump said, repeating, "if Russian Federation or anybody else is trying to interfere with our elections I think it's a frightful thing and I want to get to the bottom of it and I want to make sure it will never ever happen".

The White House tried to move past the controversy, announcing that the president had signed an executive order creating a voter fraud commission and another on cybersecurity.

Those conservations could amount to obstruction of justice, some legal analysts said on cable news as the interview clips went public.
