'LIAR': The New York Daily News Calls Out Trump

Trump is spending the weekend at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

Mr Trump also told the former FBI director that he hoped Mr Comey "could let it go", referring to the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. But it was a battle nobody won, however many troubling questions it raised and answers it brought to light. The former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief has said the decision was now in the hands of special counsel Mueller.

Comey said he refused on all points, told senators of the detailed memos he had written after his conversations with Trump and said he hoped those conversations were taped because he is confident of their veracity.

A committee member, Democratic Sen.

Kasowitz also maintained that the testimony made clear that Trump "never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone". "The subject matter: I was talking about matters that touch on the FBI's core responsibility and that relate to the president, president-elect, personally".

When asked by MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski in 2016 which experts he speaks with, Trump replied, "I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain".

Whatever Comey's feelings about the news media, leading press outlets undercut his position.

Reed spoke on "Fox News Sunday".

"Did I miss something or did Comey just say he asked a friend to leak information to the press?" asked Trump Jr.

"I think the last 24, 48 hours were all good for the president, confirmed he was telling the truth all along, that he wasn't under investigation", GOP Rep. Jim Jordan of OH said Friday, referring to Comey's confirmation that he had informed Trump that the president wasn't being personally investigated.

Bharara says he found it "very weird and peculiar" to be drawn into private conversations with the president.

His jurisdiction included Trump Tower.

But Republican President Donald Trump prefers to play the victim. Bharara was asked for his resignation, along with other USA attorneys, but he refused and was sacked. "And this is a classic case where the reactions by the accused are getting the accused into more and more trouble", said Suri.

A USA president is given a wide array of immunities from criminal prosecutions.

Susan Collins said that President Donald Trump should reveal whether or not he has recordings of conversations with former FBI Director James Comey during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday. Trump says on Twitter, "Totally illegal?"

Separately, the Senate Judiciary Committee has asked Columbia Law School professor Daniel Richman to turn over his copies of Comey's memos about his meetings with President Trump.

While disputing Comey's testimony, Trump castigated the entire hearing as "just an excuse" for Democrats to blame their election loss on a false narrative about Russian Federation.

Detailing one-on-one talks with a sitting president - which under normal circumstances are private - Comey said he took painstaking notes for fear Trump might "lie" about the unusual encounters.

Lawmakers will get another chance to hear from a top administration official, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, when he testifies Tuesday before the Senate Appropriations Committee.

In reality, Trump has enjoyed tremendous advantages throughout his life, having been born into wealth, and having succeeded in business, entertainment and last fall's presidential election. He wanted the Flynn investigation to go away, and he wanted a public declaration that the Russian Federation investigation was not focused on Trump.
