Trump to respond publicly to Comey's testimony

President Donald Trump speaks to a Faith and Freedom conference at the Omni Shoreham Hotel Thursday

Mueller had gone so far as to meet with Justice Department leaders and White House officials about the Federal Bureau of Investigation job, which opened after President Trump fired Director James Comey on May 9.

In what Ladbrokes have dubbed their "Donald Trump Specials", gamblers can also bet on the former Apprentice star not being re-elected as President in 2020 (2/7), leaving office via impeachment or resignation before the end of his first term (4/7) and serving a full first term (5/4). It was not, as the president tweeted the next day, "total and complete vindication".

"I'll tell you about it over a short period of time". For their efforts, they were praised and thanked by Trump himself. Comey said his gut told him he couldn't trust Trump.

"I don't understand why the president just doesn't clear this matter up once and for all", Collins said.

Mr Comey's testimony came immediately after two Democrat congressmen, Al Green and Brad Sherman, began impeachment proceedings against the President. When Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., asked why he hadn't rejected outright Trump's "hope" that he close the Flynn investigation, Comey answered: "Maybe other people would be stronger in that circumstance".

He accused the administration of spreading "lies" and bluntly asserted that President Donald Trump had fired him to interfere with an investigation of Russia's ties to the Trump campaign.

Trump also denied ever asking Comey to "let" the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn go or asking for Comey's loyalty, both of which Comey said under oath during testimony at the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday. Standing with Iohannis, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partner, Trump at last confirmed his commitment to the alliance's mutual defense pact, Article 5, uttering words he deliberately did not say when he spoke at NATO's gathering in Belgium last month.

Asked if he would be willing to give his version of events under oath, Mr Trump replied: "100 per cent".

Trump's acts constitute probable cause that he engaged in obstruction of justice.

Comey's statement lays out a case against the president that consists of a tidy pattern, beginning with the demand for loyalty, the threat to terminate Comey's job, the repeated requests to turn off the investigation into Flynn and the final infliction of career punishment for failing to succumb to the president's requests, all followed by the president's own concession about his motive.

It's clear that Trump wanted at least two things from his Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and he got neither.

On Thursday, Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he showed copies of his unclassified memos to a friend outside the DOJ after Trump fired him and tweeted that he better hope that there are no tapes of their conversations before he starts leaking to the press. As pointed out by many, Comey's memos may not be considered "classified" information. "But I did not say that". Mueller could do the same.

Griffin posed with a vacant-eyed stare to the camera, holding a replica of President Trump's detached, bloodied head by the hair. They continued: "We found what she did disgusting and offensive". "It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate".
