Donald Trump Gives A Typically Bullshit Answer About Firing James Comey!

Russian President Vladimir Putin Receives Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko

The White House appeared caught off guard by the intense response to Comey's firing, given that the FBI director had become a pariah among Democrats for his role in the Clinton investigation. I hope you won't either.

"Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey", said Trump. You take a look at the Federal Bureau of Investigation a year ago - it was in virtual turmoil, less than a year ago.

Burr added that the goal of the meeting was to establish "a way forward" between the Department of Justice and the Intelligence committee, which is also investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Mr McCabe also vowed not to update the White House on the status of the investigation and to notify the Senate panel of any attempt to interfere with the inquiry.

And he requested significantly more resources, briefed key senators of that Monday and was sacked Tuesday.

When asked by Senator Marco Rubio whether Comey's abrupt dismissal would impede the work of the FBI, McCabe was adamant.

He's an inherently braggadocious individual who's said things like, "I know words, I have the best words". "My decision", Trump told NBC News on May 11.

Thursday's hearing was scheduled to address global security threats, but there were frequent questions about Comey and the FBI's Russian Federation probe.

He also confessed to receiving "blood transfusions" and "going to the laboratories and so on and so forth". Moreover, The Guardian reported that he was also missing the Juma'at prayer at Aso Villa mosque last week.

In latest airline video, Delta boots family from flight
Brian told the Delta employee that his son flew out to Hawaii in a auto seat, and the employee called that "unfortunate". The Schear family told ABC7 the airline reached out to them after the incident to find out more about what happened.

On Thursday, acting FBI director Andrew McCabe declined to tell a Senate Intelligence Committee whether he ever heard Comey tell Trump that the president was not a target of their investigation, Reuters reported.

"I said, 'If it's possible would you let me know am I under investigation?' He said, 'You are not under investigation, ' " Trump said. "We consider it to be a highly significant investigation", he said instead. However, Democratic senators repeatedly returned to the issue, arguing that Comey's sacking made it even more relevant.

"He's a showboat, he's a grandstander", Trump said of Comey. I can tell you that I hold Director Comey in the absolute highest regard, ' said McCabe. Trump has reportedly fumed privately about negative media attention and criticism from Democrats who he thought would welcome Comey's dismissal after he took the extraordinarily unusual step to speak out about the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's email days before the election.

Opening the hearing on global threats that heard evidence from the heads of the main U.S. intelligence agencies, Burr, insisted that it would not be exclusively focused on the Trump-Russia enquiry.

Trump himself seemed to contradict the official White House narrative in an interview that was just made public this afternoon (May 11). The senators said later that the Russian Federation investigations were discussed but Comey's firing was not.

Asked at an oversight hearing whether it was accurate that rank-and-file members no longer backed Comey - as the White House claims - McCabe replied: 'No sir, that is not accurate'.

President Trump defended his actions on Wednesday, saying Mr Comey was sacked "because he was not doing a good job".
