White House struggles to straighten its story on Comey

Clapper, who retired in January, says he didn't know about the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The spokesman would not confirm or deny if the White House has recording devices that Trump alluded to in a separate tweet on Friday morning. In a three-page memo to the president, Rosenstein had criticized Comey's handling of the FBI investigation into Secretary Clinton's private email server. "After watching Director Comey s testimony last Wednesday (at Capitol Hill), the President was strongly inclined to remove him".

Look at a given day's worth of White House reporting. "You can not stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution", said Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Later, Ms Sanders said, "We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity".

Six hours after President Donald Trump implied that he could be taping phone calls with now-deposed FBI Director James Comey, White House press secretary Sean Spicer refused to rule that possibility out. One example: Trump's tweet that he was being wiretapped by President Obama during the 2016 campaign has been debunked by everyone in a position to know.

He added, "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???" Whereas Spicer, Vice President Pence and others insisted early on that Trump was acting on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, Trump told NBC News's Lester Holt that he'd been committed to the dismissal for some time.

"President Donald Trump is considering?making changes to his communications team, which he blames for failing to contain the controversy surrounding his firing of former FBI Director James Comey, according to multiple administration officials", the journal reported.

Tuesday: "It was all him".

But Trump himself on Thursday contradicted initial statements, claiming he was going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendation. Democrats quickly accused Trump of using Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as a pretext and called for a special prosecutor into the Russian Federation probe. "The president, over the last several months, lost confidence in Director Comey".

Sanders also told CBS News' "This Morning" that Trump is "very likely" to visit Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters soon.
