Trump Attacks James Comey on Twitter

The White House said Trump is weighing options for replacing Comey, a decision that could have broad implications for the future of the Russian Federation investigation.

We call on right-minded members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and concerned people across the nation to stand up and say American democracy is not for sale. The Democrats know they are fabricating this whole thing, but they figure this is the best way they can thwart Trump's efforts to move the country forward and out of the multiple quagmires Obama landed this country in.

"Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein must immediately appoint a special counsel to continue the Trump/Russia investigation", Casey said in a release. The third ranking justice department official at the time then complied with President Nixon's order and fired the special prosecutor.

Among those interviewed was McCabe, though it's not clear how seriously he's being considered.

Trump says Comey had told him three times he was not under investigation in the Russian Federation probe. The FBI has never had a female director.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said Sessions and Rosenstein are involved in the interviews because the Federal Bureau of Investigation director reports to them as attorney general and deputy attorney general. His predecessor, Robert Mueller, was a US attorney in San Francisco.

One contender who could prove politically palatable is Michael Garcia, a former US attorney in Manhattan with significant experience in terrorism and public corruption investigations.

According to him, the airline operated its normal schedule flight to London amidst the misinformation about the restriction. Med-View Airline has been barred by the European Commission from operating within its airspace over safety reasons.

In fact, Mr Comey confirmed that such an investigation existed only on 20 March, when he spoke before a congressional intelligence committee.

Details of the dinner were first reported by The New York Times.

One Republican whose name had been mentioned as a possible candidate, Rep. Trey Gowdy of SC, said Monday that he had taken himself out of the running.

Comey's replacement requires Senate confirmation.

"I have no investments in Russian Federation, none whatsoever", Trump said Thursday in an interview with NBC News. Luttig clashed with the Bush White House on a prominent terror case, rebuking the administration for its actions in the case involving "enemy combatant" Jose Padilla. Trump said he would not talk about the existence of any tapes. Graham said under the circumstances he wouldn't be able to support his colleague Sen.

Democratic former presidential contender Bernie Sanders also highlighted the fact the decision came a day after former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates told a Senate committee of the concerns she had over Mr Flynn's Russian Federation ties.

Some House Republicans, who technically have no role in the pick, have spoken out about the need for non-partisanship and independence.
