White House: Trump thought about firing Comey since Election Day

White House: Trump thought about firing Comey since Election Day White House: Trump thought about firing Comey since Election Day

As he did across the nation, Trump goaded chants of "lock her up" in Colorado on the campaign trail past year in regards to Clinton's alleged handling of the classified e-mails on her private server.

Trump said he fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director because he "wasn't doing a good job" and on the recommendation of Justice Department officials. "The attorney general has already had to recuse himself from the investigation for being too close to the president".

Though Conway had been absent from CNN for over a month before Tuesday, her interview with Cuomo was her second on the network following Trump's decision to fire Comey.

He went on to criticize a democratic senator who called the abrupt firing "a defiance of the rule of law, and common sense", and slammed as "fake news" a media report that claimed a Trump associate widely believed to be under FBI investigation recommended Comey's ouster.

US stocks were little changed and Treasury benchmark yields retreated on Wednesday as Comey's firing spurred some concern among investors that the fallout could hinder the president's economic agenda.

The Republican chair of the Senate intelligence committee, Sen.

Comey has reportedly been invited to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week.

"His dismissal further confuses an already hard investigation by the committee", Burr said. Trump has ridiculed the probes, calling them a "hoax", and he has denied that his campaign was involved in Russia's election meddling. However, Trump thought Comey should have prosecuted her, so why would Trump now object that Comey had been unfair to his nemesis? "Let's get [these investigations] done. It was spy versus spy", Montoya said.

National security adviser Michael Flynn had to resign after lying about his contact with Mr Kislyak, while attorney general Jeff Sessions faced calls to quit after it had emerged he had failed to disclose two meetings with him.

Sen. Dan Sullivan said the timing "raises questions that will need to be answered by the administration".

These are extraordinary circumstances that dictate a special prosecutor in the investigation.

"That is why there is no need for him to tell us anything, or to give us assurance behind closed doors", Lavrov said, asked if he received any assurances from Mr. Trump about his belief that Russians had meddled in the 2016 election.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said only: "Once the Senate receives a nomination, we look forward to a full, fair and timely confirmation process to fill the director position".

Several senators said they were losing faith in the ability of political appointees at the Justice Department to oversee the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election.

As the story enveloped cable news Tuesday evening, Conway and the White House's deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, were dispatched on television to defend the White House's move.
