Sen. Schumer Invites Trump To Do Something Few Presidents Have Done

14 Juin, 2017, 12:09 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Donald Trump Jr. appeared to confirm on Saturday that his father indeed suggested that former FBI Director James Comey should shut down the FBI's investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The president and his aides have complained about leaks, purportedly from the intelligence community, throughout the investigations by the FBI and Congress into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA presidential elections and the Trump campaign's contact with Russian officials.

"Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction", Mr Trump said in the White House Rose Garden during a news conference with the Romanian president, Klaus Iohannis.

The issue is whether Trump tried to direct Comey to stop investigating former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation. If we can not agree that something is happening, asked Fair, "then how are we going to have a fact-based policy" to address it?

"Well, I didn't say that".

"I'm not hinting at anything", Trump said, but then he teased, "You'll be very disappointed".

The pledge came as Trump accused James Comey of lying to Congress about their private exchanges.

Bharara, in an interview with ABC News' "This Week", said Trump as president-elect called him twice.

"I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you, Jon", Trump responded. Both men, though, said they never "felt pressured" to do so.

Comey's testimony was the most eagerly anticipated US congressional hearing in years. Trump wrote on Twitter just after 6 a.m. on Friday.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, did not make any major disclosures about any links between Trump or his associates and alleged Russian meddling. The New York Democrat added that the Senate would also consult with special counsel Robert Mueller, who has taken the lead on a wide-ranging investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections. In his caustic testimony, Comey accused the Trump administration of spreading lies, though he acknowledged telling Trump that he wasn't personally under investigation.

Trump, when asked about the possibility of those tapes during a press conference on Friday afternoon, would not rule out his earlier claim that his conversations with Comey may have been recorded.

Asked if he had taped their conversations, as he implied in a threatening tweet shortly after he fired Comey, Trump said he would reveal that answer soon.

"Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future", Trump said.

Comey's testimony Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee was "a pretty powerful statement" in support of an obstruction investigation, said Harvard University law professor Mark Tushnet, a legal history expert. Instead, their point of view so far has seemed to be: "Nothing happened to cause the president's arrest today so we're winning, we're vindicated, and it's a Democratic plot".

Comey said he refused on all points, told senators of the detailed memos he had written after his conversations with Trump and said he hoped those conversations were taped because he is confident of their veracity.
