Trump says new Federal Bureau of Investigation 'possible' by Friday, ahead of Saturday's commencement speech

Trump says new Federal Bureau of Investigation 'possible' by Friday, ahead of Saturday's commencement speech

But the White House has denied those reports.

Pearson and Lemire reported from NY.

But these days news moves fast.

The president dismissed allegations that he had removed Mr Comey to blunt an FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election. Details of the dinner were first reported by The New York Times.

"That I can't talk about", the president would only say.

Kellyanne Conway in CNN interview with Anderson Cooper: "I think you're looking at the wrong set of facts here".

Trump's statements, through a tweet and later television interview, threaten a Washington institution that is the most high-profile forum for journalists to question the government about policy and the news of the day. Today, journalism is at the level of, if not better than, the height of Watergate.

Burr directed his first question of the hearing to McCabe, referencing Trump's dismissal letter to Comey, in which the president claimed Comey had assured him "on three separate occasions" that he was not under FBI investigation. Not only are they digging for what is happening, but they are examining why it is happening, and what else may happen.

"I want to get to the bottom if Russian Federation or anybody is trying to tamper or play with our election", Trump told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro. Most journalists realize their work-both individually and collectively-often makes them part of the story. The Comey firing story is a flawless example. Conflicting stories were the topic of much media discussion.

The New York Times reported Thursday that Trump had pressed Comey for his loyalty in a January 27 dinner meeting, but that he only promised that "he would be honest with him always".

Mr Trump was said to be considering Mike Rogers, a former congressman, as Mr Comey's replacement. Hillary Clinton, and many who have analyzed the 2016 election, believe Comey's behavior cost Hillary the win.

Trump fired Comey Tuesday night. "We don't believe this to be an accurate account", deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told The Times.

Raging against a political firestorm, President Donald Trump on Friday shot a sharp warning at his ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director about possible "tapes" of their disputed private conversations, raising the provocative possibility that recording devices have been installed in the White House. But he called Trump's tweet "inappropriate".

Trump's threat came the morning after NBC aired an interview in which he called Comey a "showboat" and a "grand-stander" and said that the FBI has "been in turmoil" and hasn't recovered from Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Lester Holt was fully prepared, and asked all the key questions. Trump told NBC on Thursday that he was looking for an excuse to fire Comey, who was leading an investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "Holt also asked him why he added to the letter firing Comey the following: "... "So I'll see you over at the school".

When the new president then asked whether it would be "honest loyalty", Comey responded, "You will have that".

But Trump also told Holt his reason for firing Comey, "In fact, when I chose to just do it [referring to firing Comey], I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.'" It was an extraordinary admission.
