Trump said firing Comey relieved 'great pressure'

Combative and complaining, Trump fell short Thursday in trying to resolve investigations into his campaign and his first four months in office.

Russian Federation has denied the allegations. Even his enemies, Trump declared, recognize his innocence.

"I would be very discouraged if somehow this new special prosecutor would preclude Jim Comey from testifying in public before our committee", he said.

On Friday, the Post published a story claiming that the investigation of the Trump campaign colluding with Russian Federation has identified a White House official as a person of interest.

"I can't comment on the Justice Department's efforts". Republicans on Capitol Hill hoped the same, reasoning that the appointment of a special counsel could free them to work on a major tax overhaul - and other matters - without constant distractions. "By grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia's actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia", Spicer said. "Zero", Trump said Thursday during a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

Did he urge Comey at a February meeting to drop his probe of the Russian Federation connections of Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn?

Another answer on that subject seemed both more specific and perhaps ambiguous. There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign.

Final Confederate monument coming down in New Orleans
One onlooker, John Renner, a white man and an IL native, said the statue should remain because it represents history. The statues will be put into storage while the city looks for a suitable place to display them, the mayor has said.

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" added Trump, who said in a speech on Wednesday that "no politician in history" had been treated worse or more unfairly than he has. "They either don't understand that they are hurting their own country, and then they are simply dumb, or they understand everything and then they are unsafe and corrupt people", Putin added.

"If I were Mr. Mueller I would jealously guard the witness pool", Graham said.

"We'll get rid of the smoke and see where the actual issues lie", said Sen. But senators present at a closed-door meeting with Mr Rosenstein say the deputy attorney general knew about Mr Comey's impending dismissal the day before he wrote the memo.

Trump cited displeasure with the FBI's Russian Federation probe as a factor in dismissing Comey. Trump said as recently as Thursday that he acted on a "very strong" recommendation from Rosenstein, but Rosenstein made it clear to Congress that he drafted his memo only after Trump told him of his plans to dismiss the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

"That was a poor, poor performance", Trump said.

The Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Trump campaign ties with Russia announced Thursday that Michael Flynn's attorney has informed the committee the fired Naitonal Security Adviser does not plan to honor a committee subpoena issued calling for him to turn over documents related to his contacts with Russians.
