Trump's broadside at 'showboating' Comey

Trump's broadside at 'showboating' Comey

The interviews are being conducted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein.

Andrew McCabe, testifying before Congress Tuesday in place of his fired boss, contradicted the administration's characterizations of an investigation into potential co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer found himself playing defense - yet again - Friday for tweets President Trump sent earlier in the day.

"This is not going to end well for this administration", the former official said. "And I've talked to the president, the president has nothing further to add".

The top Democrats on three House committees are calling Trump's bluff on the recordings.

In the termination letter to Mr Comey, Mr Trump thanked him for telling him "three times" that he personally is not under investigation for collusion with Russian Federation during his 2016 campaign.

McCabe, a career FBI agent who ran the Washington field office and oversaw national security investigations out of headquarters, was a target of Trump's on the campaign trail following reports that his wife had accepted campaign donations from a close ally of Hillary Clinton during a failed bid for the state Senate.

The interview was broadcast shortly after the acting director of the FBI flatly contradicted the White House's claims that Mr Comey had lost the support of his bureau before being fired on Tuesday. The president told NBC that Comey did that once in person and twice on the phone.

The New York Times reported that Comey slammed similar statements as unrealistic, and that during a conversation with his assistants he allegedly described Trump as "an outside the realm of normal" and "crazy".

At the same time, 54 percent of respondents believe that the dismissal was carried out improperly, while 38 percent called the President's decision on Comey a correct move.
