Trump tells Russians about firing Comey

Comey will certainly be asked about encounters that precipitated his firing, including a January dinner in which, Comey has told associates, Trump asked for his loyalty.

Meanwhile, Trump says he's very close to selecting a new FBI Director, and has indicated a preference for former Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman.

That day, Comey's attempt to make like a leaf mantis or Hamlet failed, and probably turned out worse than he expected: Trump spotted him, blew him a kiss and beckoned him over for a handshake. But Trump later changed this account.

"I just fired the head of the FBI He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said, according to official meeting notes which were read aloud to the New York Times by an administration source.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer called the president's rhetoric part of his deal-making.

‎He said both Republicans and Democrats both applauded when he responded to a question about the ability of Mueller to decide the contours of the investigation.

Among Trump's senior White House advisers are several former campaign officials, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Kellyanne Conway.

Rosenstein said he also discussed "the need for new leadership at the FBI" with Jeff Sessions - then a senator, now the attorney general - last winter.

The White House initially cited Rosenstein's memo as the basis for Trump's sudden dismissal of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director on May 9.

"He's more famous than me", said Trump, before attempting to hug Comey.

The Justice Department on Friday released the text of Rosenstein's opening remarks for the briefings on Capitol Hill.

Trump said at a news conference Thursday that he had thought firing Comey would be a popular action, and that his decision was at least party based on Comey's "poor performance" in testifying before Congress a few weeks earlier.

"Just came out of the House briefing by the Deputy AG", Rep. Seth Moulton tweeted on Friday. "This renewed my confidence that we should not have confidence in this administration".

Asked if Rosenstein said why he assumed Comey would be fired, Hudson said, "he didn't".

The White House has struggled since Comey's firing to explain the chain of events that led to it and the Justice Department's involvement in that decision. Trump praised that decision at the time, though, saying it "took a lot of guts". "My memorandum is not a statement of reasons to justify a for-cause termination", he said.

"I wrote it. I believe it. I believe it. I stand by it".

In the memo, Rosenstein wrote that Comey had been fired for poor handling of the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton, namely Comey's announced days before the Presidential election that the case had been reopened.

"Rosenstein testimony to Senate was profoundly disturbing", Sen. And that the reason behind Comey's dismissal was how irritated Trump had become over ... the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump, combative and complaining, fell short Thursday in trying to resolve investigations into his campaign and his first four months in office.
