Trump hints he may end daily White House press briefings

Lawmakers urge Trump to avoid picking a partisan for FBI job

Spicer did not respond to question that whether the White House taped the conversation between Donald Trump and James Comey, which the president was referring to. Late Thursday, The New York Times cited two unnamed Comey associates who recounted his version of a January dinner with the president in which Trump asked for a pledge of loyalty.

Schiff on Sunday said Trump "needs to come clean" about whether his claim was "yet another fabrication" or whether he did indeed record his conversations with Comey.

The White House initially cited a Justice Department memo criticizing Comey's handling of last year's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails as the impetus for Trump's decision. Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason said.

The US President told reporters "we can make a fast decision" and that it was "possible" it could be by Friday.

How can we tell whether Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey was meant to ensure competent leadership of the FBI, as Trump claims, or to prevent Comey from digging deeper into Trump's potential connections with Russian Federation, as many Democrats claim. NY state judge Michael Garcia, acting FBI Director James McCabe, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn and the former head of the Justice Department's Criminal Division, Alice Fisher, will be interviewed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein.

Also Friday, Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) said he hopes to have Mr. Comey testify next week in an open hearing of the intelligence committee, which is conducting a broad investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election and possible contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

"I think the process is going to go quickly", he said, adding that the candidates under consideration were mostly well known.

The 49-year-old McCabe, a career FBI agent, has taken part in a number of high-profile investigations, including probes into the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 and the attacks against U.S. installations in Benghazi, Libya in 2012.

"I$3 t is a crime to intimidate or threaten any potential witness with the intent to influence, delay, or prevent their official testimony", they say in the letter. If she is selected, Fisher would become the first female Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

"These White House tapes could accelerate current investigations as previous tapes have aided past inquiries", Mr. Krishnamoorthi wrote.

In an interview with United States media, President Trump also accused him being a "showboat" and a "grandstander".
