Comey declines to testify before Senate Intelligence Committee

Comey declines to testify before Senate Intelligence Committee

The decision is subject to confirmation by the U.S. Senate, where Republicans have a majority. Trump told NBC he had planned to fire Comey all along, regardless of whether top Justice Department officials recommended the stunning step.

The president tweeted, "Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election".

Trump told NBC News that Comey is "a showboat, he's a grandstander".

Unfortunately for the press and the public it intends to serve, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer provided no clarity. It's also possible Trump suspects someone else made a recording.

Comey to Testify in Open Session on Russia Investigation
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said Trump has shown his disrespect for the presidency if the Times report is accurate. In that same conversation, Trump referred to Comey as "crazy" and "a real nut job", according to the Times .

Trump said in an interview this week that he and Comey had dinner a week after his inauguration, and the president described the conversation as Comey asking him to keep him in his job. "I think sometimes we don't have an opportunity to get in to see him and get his full thinking".

They've distanced the decision from the FBI probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 campaign, only to later suggest Comey's firing would aid the investigation. "The president has nothing further to add on that", Spicer replied.

The controversy began this morning, when Trump again took aim at the investigation into his administration and its potential ties to Russian Federation, while blasting the "fake media" and its coverage of the issue.

Meanwhile, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the full U.S. Senate next week on Comey's firing, according to a spokesman for Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

A California Democrat explained live on CNN the trouble with believing anything said by President Donald Trump. That appears to be a reference to a New York Times report that Trump demanded loyalty from Comey at a January dinner. "The president asked that they put those concerns and their recommendation in writing, which is the letter that you guys have received", Sanders said, describing the president's instructions to Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. John Conyers and Elijah Cummings, both Democrats, on Friday requested copies of any such recordings from the White House counsel.

Fox News quoted a government source as saying they were moving "quickly and expeditiously" to find a replacement, adding: "We're doing our due diligence - we are not going to cut any corners".

President Donald Trump said Saturday that "we can make a fast decision" on a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director, possibly by late next week, before he leaves on his first foreign trip since taking office.
