President Donald Trump's private lawyer plans to file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey with the Senate judiciary committee and Justice Department Inspector General for leaking memos according to reports.
After Comey was sacked, he asked his trusted friend to share one of his memoranda with the New York Times so the government may be pushed to assign a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign-Russia connection.
US, Saudis accused of supporting attacks
The attack rippled through the Iranian fabric and shattered the regime's veneer of security and control, analysts say. Newly re-elected President Hassan Rouhani has said the attacks will make Iran more united.
At a press conference on Friday afternoon in the Rose Garden with the visiting president of Romania, Mr Trump rejected Mr Comey's claims.
So far there is no evidence that tapes of Comey and Trump's conversations actually exist outside of the White House, creating an air of mystery around the idea and distracting from the many already damning allegations around the Trump administration. "I will tell you about it over a very short period of time". Their request, submitted via a letter, asked that the copies of any such materials be given to the committee by June 23. On Friday, the leaders of the House of Representatives intelligence committee's investigation said they had asked Comey for his notes and memos about his discussions with Trump, and asked the White House to produce any recordings or memos of conversations between Trump and Comey.
Trump was appearing at the White House with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.
So if there are no tapes, we are to accept that the president of the United States is creating confusion and conspiracy only to debunk his own created confusion and conspiracy because he's a damn mad man! The president also said the investigation is an "excuse" by the Democrats before they lost the election. Tillerson had called on the Arab nations to immediately ease their blockade on Qatar.
New UK election only alternative to deal with DUP -senior Conservative lawmaker
A puppet depicting Theresa May stands in front of the Houses of Parliament in Westminster following the General Election results. It was three years before the next scheduled election, and the conservatives already had a secure, if small, majority.
Earlier on Friday, Trump took to Twitter to declare "total and complete vindication" in response to Comey's testimony.
It is important to note that the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, apparently in consultation with the FBI's senior leaders, decided the Federal Bureau of Investigation was "not going to follow" what Comey called "a direction" from the President.
The president instead allowed surrogates to respond on Thursday, including his son, Donald Trump Jr., who posted dozens of tweets to his own account mocking Comey. Trump wrote at 6:10 a.m. He derisively repeated the "leaker" moniker when speaking to reporters in the Rose Garden.
Mr Trump also asserted that Mr Comey's comments Thursday, in which the former FBI director implied that the president fired him for pressing forward with the Russian Federation investigation, had failed to prove any collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow nor any obstruction of justice.
