For Trump base, it's easy to shrug off Comey turmoil

John Cornyn of Texas, attorney Alice Fisher and Judge Michael Garcia for the permanent position. Comey had come under intense scrutiny for his role in the FBI's investigation into the email practices of Trump's opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, and the reopening of the investigation just days before the election. Comey would also have an opportunity to go on the record and confirm or deny Trump's claim that the he told the president on three separate occasions he wasn't under investigation.

"Even that is possible", he said before flying to Virginia to deliver Liberty University's commencement address.

James Comey has agreed to testify in a public Senate hearing regarding the investigation into alleged ties between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's campaign team.

Spicer repeatedly said "the president has nothing further to add on that" and eventually insisted: "The tweet speaks for itself".

"It is essential that the next Federal Bureau of Investigation director understand the details of how agents do their important work", Association President Thomas O'Connor said.

"In fact when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won", the Republican president told NBC.

The White House initially said Comey was sacked on the recommendation of the two top officials at the Justice Department.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation probe and parallel congressional investigations have cast a cloud over Trump's presidency since he took office on January 20, threatening to overwhelm his policy priorities.

She also was deputy special counsel to the Senate committee that investigated President Bill Clinton's Whitewater scandal.

In an interview with United States media, President Trump also accused him being a "showboat" and a "grandstander".

That contradicted the White House narrative that agents had lost confidence in their leader.

Comey has not publicly discussed any conversations he has had with Trump.

President Trump tweeted Friday that "Comey had better hope there are no tapes of our conversations", and Press Secretary Sean Spicer refused to answer press questions about whether there are recording devices in the White House.
