Majority believe Trump fired Comey to hinder Russian Federation investigation

"No. No. Next question", Trump interrupted tersely.

"I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt, and there is no collusion between - certainly myself and my campaign, but I can only speak for myself and the Russians".

President Trump in the joint press conference emphasized that Colombia is a key partner in the war against drugs. "If I get what I want it'll be the biggest tax cut in the history of our nation".

Trump was also asked about his thoughts on the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Muller to lead the probe.

But during the news conference, Trump contradicted both his own account and that of Rosenstein.

"We need a great director of the FBI", Trump said.

Trump fired Comey one week ago, in what the White House initially said was based on the recommendations of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I rise today Mr. Speaker to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice".

"There was no collusion", he said.

He said he ended the habit, but it resurfaced in 2013, leading him to pull out of the race for NY mayor that year. Clinton has said that Comey's announcement was part of why she lost the election.

"Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion", he said.

The White House on Tuesday sought to tamp down the controversy with national security adviser HR McMaster telling reporters that what the president shared with the Russian officials "was wholly appropriate to that conversation and is consistent with the routine sharing of information between the president and any leaders with whom he's engaged".

Miller agreed with the president that Comey is a "showboat", which is another reason he believes Comey may be coming after Trump. "And the acting director just said the other day that no one has tried to impede that investigation", he told reporters at a news conference.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has mocked USA news reports suggesting President Donald Trump shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on airplanes.

President Trump watches as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan departs at the entrance to the West Wing of the White House in Washington, May 16, 2017.

Trump fired Comey May 9, in part, Trump said later, because the Russian investigation was dragging on. "I hope you can let this go", referring to the inquiry into Flynn's actions.

Trump said the issue is dividing the country and he wanted to get to work running the country.

"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity. When I made that decision I actually thought it would be a bipartisan decision because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such awful thing about Director Comey".
