Trump Denies Pressuring Comey to End Flynn Probe

19 May 2017, 11:00 | Terri Saunders

President Donald Trump on Thursday categorically denied pressuring former FBI director James Comey to end the FBI's investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

"No", Trump told a reporter during a joint press conference with his Colombian counterpart, before trying to shut down the line of inquiry with this: "Next question".

The day after the Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to the congressional investigations into Democrats' claims of Russian interference in United States elections, Trump said he respected the decision, but added: "I think that divides the country".

Hours after former FBI director Robert Mueller was tapped to take over the investigation, Trump took to Twitter in the early morning to scrub the White House's earlier, more measured, response.

Trump blasted that decision, echoing his Thursday morning tweets and comments he made over lunch with network news anchors that the Russian Federation investigation is a "witch hunt" that "divides the country". "I think it divides the country".

Democrats had slammed Comey's "poor" handling of the Clinton email investigation as recently as this month, but then later decried his firing as an attempt to stymie the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the elections and any collusion with Trump's campaign.

"The drug epidemic is poisoning too many American lives, and we're going to stop it", Mr. Trump said.

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week, prompting some to call for an independent prosecutor to lead the investigation.

In the memo, which ABC News has not seen, Comey wrote that he was asked by the president to let the Flynn probe go in February.

Trump slams Comey, once more dismisses Russia probe as "witch hunt"
During his late afternoon press conference in the White House he took a slightly more measured approach. I think he represented Ukraine or people having to do with Ukraine, or people that - whoever.


In his first press conference since he fired Comey, Trump defended his decision to do so, saying he thought it would actually draw bipartisan praise.

Trump told the reporters at Thursday's luncheon that "we are very, very close to announcing" a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says, "I don't think that's the case" when asked if tax reform could slip beyond this year.

"Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion", he said.

Meanwhile, at home, other investigations into Russian Federation will move forward.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has mocked USA news reports suggesting President Donald Trump shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on airplanes.

"That was a poor, poor performance", Trump said. The president's anger contrasted with a more measured written statement released by the White House on Wednesday evening, when he declared that a thorough investigation would find "no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity".

"It shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country", Trump told the group.
