Comey prepared extensively for his conversations with Trump

Trump went to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London Conn. where he gave the commencement address

Asked about Mr Trump's tweets, she said the president should "get some thick skin".

The president's son-in-law Jared Kushner is among those whose contacts with the Russian government have come under scrutiny.

The Senate intelligence committee also asked acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to turn over any notes Comey might have made regarding discussions he had with White House or Justice Department officials about Russia's efforts to influence the election.

"He knew that Comey was going to be removed prior to him writing his memo", Sen.

Comey prepared extensively for his discussions with President Trump, out of concern that the president was unlikely to respect the legal and ethical boundaries governing their respective roles, according to associates of the now-fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief. "I hope you can let this go", referring to the inquiry into Flynn's actions.

The Times cited a White House document that "has been circulated as the official account of the meeting". "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said, according to an official summary of the meeting that a United States official read to The Times. The others were former Connecticut Sen.

- Speaking at a conference in Las Vegas, former Vice President Joe Biden addressed numerous topics, including his thoughts on running for president, his time serving under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy.

Senators who attended the closed-door meeting said Mr Rosenstein said he knew on Monday, May 8th, that Mr Trump was planning to fire Mr Comey before he wrote the memo that was initially used by the White House to justify the decision.

The Justice Department on Friday distributed prepared remarks that Rosenstein delivered to Congress in separate briefings.

Hearse stolen from McDonald's, body dumped by the side of the road
Police said a passerby found a gurney with a body a few hours later in the 6000 block of Dick Elliott Rd in Brazos County. A body was dumped on the side of a Brazos County road Friday morning amid the theft of a hearse, according to KXAN .

Republicans have largely stood behind Trump in the first months of his presidency as FBI and congressional investigations into Russia's election meddling intensified. Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Trott says lawmakers pressed Rosenstein on the memo but he declined to respond.

While Mueller begins his investigation, Congress has its own ongoing probe into Russian Federation.

"I wish the president would stop tweeting", said Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) told The Hill, potentially voicing the concerns of other members.

"That was a consistent statement of his throughout", Murphy said.

Massachusetts Democratic congressman Seth Moulton says Rosenstein didn't "do a lot to bolster our confidence in him".

Trott says Maryland Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings asked something like, "So you woke up one morning and made a decision to write a memo?"

The revelation undercuts President Donald Trump's insistence that his campaign had nothing to do with the Kremlin. "Even my enemies have said, 'There is no collusion'".

But Thursday morning, Trump tweeted a more aggressive tone, calling the investigation into potential ties between Russian Federation and his presidential campaign a "witch hunt", a sentiment he reiterated later Thursday during a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

Mr Trump on Thursday piled onto his mounting reasons for firing Mr Comey, mentioning his "very poor performance" at a recent Senate hearing, and the FBI's declining reputation.
