Trump Says It's a Good Idea Not to Have Press Conferences!

Trump Says It's a Good Idea Not to Have Press Conferences!

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says the United States' political institutions are now "under assault" both externally and internally, in the wake of President Donald Trump's firing of ex-FBI Director James Comey.

As Republicans asked for Comey's evidence, there were bipartisan voices also calling for the former FBI Director to come before Congress and tell his story publicly. Referring to a White House dinner in January at which Comey associates have told several media outlets that Trump asked him for a loyalty pledge, Graham added, "And if there are any tapes, they have to be turned over".

Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., says he too wants more details, but he also notes that Trump's standing with South Carolina Republicans has "actually grown". "If you said he did it because Comey is 6'8" and Trump feels like a tiny little man standing next to him, I would believe you.

Calling Trump's remarks about possible taped conversations "outrageous", Sen.

Trump fired Comey, not yet four years into his 10-year term, last week and admitted later he was thinking about the Russian Federation investigation when he made the decision.

Worldpay Group (LON:WPG) Receives Overweight Rating From Barclays Analysts
After $0.03 actual EPS reported by Photronics, Inc. for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 66.67% EPS growth. The shares were bought at an average price of GBX 4,138 ($53.43) per share, with a total value of £206,900 ($267,140.09).

Firing James Comey has barely affected Donald Trump's approval rating. Democrats have accused Trump of attempting to thwart the FBI's probe and have called for some type of independent inquiry into the matter.

Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday and later said Comey was a "showboat" and "grandstander" who was not doing a good job. Lindsey Graham said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump should stop talking or tweeting about the ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the election.

On ABC News' This Week on Sunday morning, Clapper said that Russia's "first objective" was to "sow doubt, discord, and dissension in this country" during the 2016 election.

The Senate's top Democrat is raising the possibility his party may try to stall President Donald Trump's Federal Bureau of Investigation nominee until his administration agrees to have a special prosecutor investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign.

Asked if he had considered returning that call, Bharara said there are lots of regulations regarding how contacts should be made between the White House and the Justice Department.

Former Liberal leader John Hewson weighed in on Tuesday night, claiming the government had "consistently overestimated tax revenue".

Comey was "concerned" that the President was trying to "stop the investigation", the source told CNN.

"I want to get to the bottom if Russian Federation or anybody is trying to tamper or play with our election", Trump told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro. He told NBC that Cornyn, a former judge and former Texas attorney general, would be a "superb choice" at another point in history but that "these are not normal circumstances". And few administration officials appeared on television programs to face questions about Trump's firing of Comey.

Mr. Trump signaled over the weekend that he could nominate a new director as soon as this week.

"The key here, of course, is getting some of our Republican colleagues to join us". Graham said there may come a time when a special prosecutor is needed but not now.

The White House has repeatedly crossed lines that other administrations have been reluctant to cross when discussing politically charged criminal investigations. "(Prime Minister) Nawaz (Sharif) has the same thought process as the Americans when it comes to waging wars", the former President said while addressing a rally in Peshawar.
