Donald Trump contradicts his own White House about James Comey firing timeline

12 Mai 2017

Speaking to CNN " s Jake Tapper on Thursday afternoon, Senator Kamala Harris of California renewed Democratic calls for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign over the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. The speaker says the investigation involves deeply classified intelligence collection and should not be turned over to independent investigators.

"This is a continuing pattern of disrespecting the men and women who serve in the intelligence community", Warner said.

"I can't really answer those sorts of questions in this forum".

Trump said that during a dinner about Comey's future, the FBI director told him "you are not under investigation".

Not surprisingly, most of the questions posed to McCabe were about the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"If it's possible, would you let me know, am I under investigation?"

The more James Comey showed up on television discussing the FBI's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, the more the White House bristled, according to aides to President Donald Trump.

They're also curious to learn about "any other constraints that might limit the FBI in conducting a thorough investigation". Wednesday, Huckabee Sanders claimed that "countless" agents had lost confidence in Comey.

Days before he was sacked, Comey requested more resources to pursue his investigation, US officials have said, fueling concerns that Trump was trying to undermine a probe that could threaten his presidency. Rather, it was about setting rules of the road for moving forward without him.

He brought that recommendation to the President, the attorney general concurred with that recommendation, and I personally am grateful that we have a President who is willing to provide the kind of decisive and strong leadership to take the recommendation of the deputy attorney general and the attorney general.

He added, "There has been no effort to impede our investigation to date".

Trump called the ex-FBI director "a showboat" because of course the White House is a middle school cheerleading competition in which Steve "Big Poppa" Bannon assured Trump that he would be the lead!

Trump's claim contradicts the initial version of events presented by the White House - including Vice President Mike Pence. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the principal deputy White House press secretary, said Wednesday she wasn't going to get into specifics about their conversations.

"The reason I'm here today is not that he was sacked but because it was so clearly because Trump was afraid of something", Mr Davis said. "He made a recommendation, but regardless of recommendation I was going to fire Comey". You can ask him.
