I was going to fire that 'showboat' Comey no matter what

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's reputation is in jeopardy because of his role that led to the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
A previously-scheduled Senate Intelligence Committee hearing today on "Worldwide Threats" became the object of unexpected excitement given the recent dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey, as Comey's interim replacement Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe came before the Committee instead.
His comments deepen the credibility crisis facing an administration that has made lying a habit. There was no "collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians".
Shortly afterwards, on Tuesday, Rosenstein wrote in a memorandum to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that that Comey had erred in disclosing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had not found sufficient evidence of wrongdoing to charge Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server while secretary of state, and calling for Comey's ouster.
"I can tell you that I worked very, very closely with Director Comey", McCabe said on Thursday, pointing out he had worked as his executive assistant director of national security and then his deputy.
Meanwhile, acting FBI Director McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday, "You can not stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution", when asked about pressure from the White House to shape the investigation.
But Trump gave an entirely different explanation to Holt.
Republicans Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas) also weighed in, expressing approval of Trump's decision.
"He's a showboat. He's a grandstander", Trump told NBC News in his first interview since firing Comey. "There's no good time to do it, by the way".
Days before he was sacked, Comey requested more resources to pursue his investigation, U.S. officials have said, fueling concerns that Trump was trying to undermine a probe that could threaten his presidency. "One Republican senator said the president's move raises questions".
"We had a very nice dinner and at that time he told me you're not under investigation", Trump said.
Rod Rosenstein, a man more used to beavering away in obscurity over case law, has been thrust into the middle of one of the biggest U.S. political upheavals in years by a three-page brief he wrote for President Donald Trump.
In an open letter to Rosenstein Thursday, the New York Times said his spotless record had been tarnished by Trump's decision, and the fate of the explosive probe now rested on his shoulders.
May 10, 2017 - Trump tweets that Comey had lost everybody's confidence, adding that he aims to "bring back the spirit and prestige of the FBI".
He conceded that some FBI employees were angry at Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of State. The following day, Feinstein questioned the timing of Comey's firing and whether it was due to the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.
"What the White House was saying on why Comey was sacked on Tuesday was different from Wednesday and is now different again", said Bays. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the top Democrat on the committee.
Trump's advisers have repeatedly tried to downplay the Russia-election matter, with Sanders saying Wednesday the FBI was "doing a whole lot more than the Russian Federation investigation".
Widespread reports in the United States media suggested that Comey was asking for more resources for that investigation. The White House informed Comey by sending him an email with several documents, including Rosenstein's memo.
