Cummings Wants White House Docs On Trump's 'Nut Job' Comey Remarks

Cummings Wants White House Docs On Trump's 'Nut Job' Comey Remarks

In a statement in response, White House press secretary Sean Spicer did not deny the report, but said Mr Comey had created "unnecessary pressure" on the US' ability to conduct diplomacy with Russian Federation.

The New York Times reported Friday that Trump told the Russians that recently fired FBI Director James Comey was a "nut job" whose ouster relieved "great pressure" on him.

But he made it clear it was not his intention for Mr Trump or other White House officials to use the document to justify firing Mr Comey, and he drafted it only after Mr Trump told him of his plans to dismiss the Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "The investigation would have always continued, and obviously, the termination of Comey would not have ended it". His testimony provides fuller details about Trump's termination of the top law enforcement official investigating whether his campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

"I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

The New York Times has reported that Trump asked Comey for his "loyalty" during a private dinner and requested he drop the investigation into Michael T. Flynn, his former national security adviser, who is under scrutiny regarding his ties to Russian Federation and Turkey.

It did not deny the Times report that Trump was critical of Comey to the Russians the day after he fired him.

In closed-door meetings with lawmakers on Thursday and Friday, Rosenstein said he wrote the memo after Trump told him one day before the May 9 firing that he wanted to dismiss Comey.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel for the probe on Wednesday. "This renewed my confidence that we should not have confidence in this administration".

Trump, accompanied by wife Melania, walk across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on Friday. Democrats were simultaneously heartened by the selection of a respected former FBI director and prosecutor to lead an investigation that they feared had been tarnished by Trump's interference, while also concerned about the possibility of losing their grip on the information coming out of their own investigations.

He says his memo is not a finding of official misconduct and is not a statement of reasons to justify Comey's firing.

"I don't expect this to be any different", he added.

She said subjects of the investigation could later argue that its results cannot be trusted, but she believes the argument would not stand up in court.

House members and senators said Rosenstein in his briefings steered clear of specifics in answering questions about his appointment of Mueller but made clear the former FBI director, will have wide latitude to pursue the investigation, potentially including criminal charges. Sessions has recused himself from the Trump-Russia probe, citing his close involvement in the Trump campaign a year ago. His role in the probe came to a screeching halt when Trump fired him 10 days ago - though a paper trail of memos he left behind has suggested the administration's attempts to derail the investigation.
