Fired FBI Director Comey To Testify Publicly About Trump, Russia Probe

Fired FBI Director Comey To Testify Publicly About Trump, Russia Probe

The Times reports that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer did not dispute the version of events. "Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations".

The Times reported that the document has been circulated as the meeting's official account, read to the newspaper by one official and its general points confirmed by another. Trump was leaving for his first foreign trip, visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel, Vatican, and a pair of summits in Brussels and Sicily.

He also reportedly said, "I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation". Calls for a special counsel to investigate escalated after Trump fired Comey.

Trump fired Comey, who was leading the Justice Department's Russian Federation inquiry, last week.

The day after firing Comey, Trump hosted Russia's foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, in the Oval Office, along with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey I. Kislyak.

A third major story dropped on Friday afternoon, with respect to President Donald Trump and the Russian Federation investigation. He is known as someone who doesn't toe the line and instead stands for principles as he did in 2004 when he had threatened to resign if the then US President George Bush went ahead with domestic surveillance plans without approval of the US Department of Justice.

Mr Trump said he was about to name a replacement for Mr Comey, another effort to settle the waters, with former senator Joe Lieberman seen as the front-runner. This was obviously a sham, which Trump revealed the next day when he told Lester Holt he would've fired Comey regardless of what Rosenstein had to say.

Syrian Kurdish official praises U.S. decision to provide arms
The YPG militia said the decision is "historic" and a "sign of confidence" in the group, in a statement released on Wednesday. Tabqah served as a base for planning such attacks after ISIS lost other territories in northern Syria.

No date has been set as yet for Comey's public appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but it likely will be next month, the committee said. Mark Warner of Virginia, who head the Intelligence Committee, had previously invited Comey to speak in a closed session as part of the committee's own investigation into Russia's interference.

Burr says the committee wants to hear from Comey on his role in the development of the USA intelligence agencies' assessment that Russian Federation interfered in last year's election.

Asked if he urged Mr Comey at a February meeting to drop his probe of the Russian Federation connections of Mr Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, the president said: "No. No".

"As to Mr. Comey, the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, coming before the committee, if I were Mr. Mueller I would jealously guard the witness pool".
