Spicer dodges questions about Trump recording in the White House

Trump, in an interview Thursday with NBC News, had this version: "I said, 'If it's possible, would you let me know, am I under investigation?' He said you are not under investigation". Question: Can we think of one individual whose reputation for personal and professional integrity has not been sullied or diminished by that individual's close identification with the Trump White House?

When he was asked, "Internally, from the president?" Luttig clashed with the Bush White House on a prominent terror case, rebuking the administration for its actions in the case involving "enemy combatant" Jose Padilla. "Or in 2019 after Dems win the House", he tweeted from his campaign account shortly before 3 a.m. "The president is the CEO of the country. He can hire and fire whoever he wants", she said.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he could announce a replacement for FBI Director James Comey by May 19, when he is due to begin his first overseas trip as president.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said selecting an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent to lead the agency would allow the nation to "reset".

In a separate interview with ABC News, the former spy chief described Comey's firing as "another victory on the scoreboard" for the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Former Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers was endorsed by the FBI Agents Association, which said his diverse background makes him the best choice for the job. Multiple officials, including Pence, said the president was acting at the behest of Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump, facing Democratic accusations that he fired Comey on Tuesday to hinder the FBI investigation into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 US presidential election, said he would have taken the action even without a recommendation to do so by the two top US Justice Department officials.

Garland was President Barack Obama's pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia after Scalia's death past year. A former top aide to Sen. Mitch McConnell, Josh Holmes, said McConnell is interested in the suggestion. Mr. Trump later said he had decided previously to fire Mr. Comey. In testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday, McCabe said he was unaware of the request - and that he believed the FBI had adequate resources for the investigation.

Justice Department officials on Saturday will interview four candidates to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey. Republicans hold 52 seats in the chamber to Democrats' 48. The former FBI director had been leading the agency's investigation into the USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Trump campaign aides and Russian officials.

Trump's defenders have said Watergate comparisons are overwrought and that there is no evidence of collusion between Mr. Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during last year's election. He said at that dinner, Comey told him he was not under investigation.

S. Korea's Moon warns high chance of clashes with North
Disarmament Ambassador Robert Wood said on Tuesday that China's leverage was key and Beijing could do more. Trump has called for an immediate halt to North Korea's missile and nuclear tests and U.S.

"Did the president ever say anything to the director of the FBI that would be construed as trying to impede the investigation?"

So far 14 people have emerged as candidates.

Alice Fisher, a former head of the Justice Department's Criminal Division, was the first to arrive on Saturday morning.

Among those interviewed was Adam Lee, special agent in charge of the FBI's Richmond, Virginia, office.

Nixon was forced to appoint a new special prosecutor.

Nonetheless, the arrival of Rosenstein and his entourage - during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that dealt extensively with Comey's firing - served only to heighten the political intrigue surrounding the deputy attorney general's enigmatic role in the controversial Comey affair.

Garcia served as assistant secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. attorney under former president George W. Bush.

Trump's threat about tapes has intensified calls from Democrats for an independent probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
