Comey believes Trump was trying to influence him

Comey believes Trump was trying to influence him”

"He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said, according to a document summarizing the meeting read to the Times.

"This new report that President Trump openly admitted to the Russians that he "faced great pressure" from the FBI's criminal investigation that was "taken off" when he fired Director Comey is astonishing - and extremely troubling", he said. He said the post-election scrutiny was making it hard to work with Russian Federation.

The Post's February 9 report that national security adviser Michael Flynn, contrary to the Trump administration's claims, talked with the Russian ambassador about USA sanctions before Trump took office.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post is reporting that a current senior White House adviser is under scrutiny as part of an investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Trump, for example, told NBC News last week that McGahn did not convey that it was an "emergency" to remove national security adviser Michael Flynn from his post.

Comey, he said in a statement, had put unwarranted pressure on the president's ability to conduct diplomacy with Russia, Syria, Ukraine and ISIS.

Monaco eager for Mbappe to stay amid Madrid links
You have to come here and do the business". " You know, (Anthony) Martial, it was he who wanted to leave and we can understand ". Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev wants Kylian Mbappe to stay for at least another season.

Rosenstein's appearance in the Senate was originally meant to allow him to explain why Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey last week, but the focus changed when Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel Wednesday night. Committees in both houses of Congress have invited Comey to testify publicly. The White House is defending Trump's words and actions, claiming that letting Comey go was a negotiating tactic aimed at allowing the U.S.to better engage with Russian Federation.

Comey's memo about Trump's comments on the Flynn investigation has only added to concerns about the White House's shifting explanations for Comey's dismissal.

Trump, whose administration has offered conflicting accounts of Comey's dismissal, left Washington on Friday for a nine-day global trip that will take him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican, as well as to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and G7 summits in Belgium and Italy, respectively. President Trump has been narrowing a short list and interviewing candidates to replace Comey, whom Trump fired on May 9.

Comey's view of Trump's intent in their conversations is nuanced, sources say.

One striking piece of news emerged from Rosenstein's briefing: He told senators that he had already known Comey was getting fired even as he wrote the memo that Trump cited as a significant justification for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's dismissal.

At Google's I/O developer conference , it was mentioned that a Daydream VR user allots 40 minutes a week, on the average. The technology is called WorldSense and is based on an expanded form of Google's existing Daydream platform.

White House lawyers have begun researching impeachment procedures in an effort to prepare for what officials still believe is a distant possibility that President Donald Trump could have to fend off attempts to remove him from office, two people briefed on the discussions tell CNN.

At this point, Trump would be far better served offering a real defense of himself rather than tying all of this to some deep-state conspiracy to make him look bad.

As The New York Times has reported, after numerous encounters with the administration, Comey felt he had to set the parameters of appropriate protocol very clearly.

Another day, another White House scandal... The White House initially claimed that Trump made the move on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

On Thursday, Rosenstein told the full Senate at a closed briefing that he knew the president would fire Comey before he wrote his memo.
