After almost five months of living apart, President Donald Trump's wife, Melania, announced Sunday that she and the couple's young son have finally moved into the executive mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
That appears to directly contradict what Trump said during a Friday news conference, when he insisted, "I didn't say that" when he was asked about that portion of Comey's testimony. Both men said that they never "felt pressured" to do so.
As for the timing of Sessions' recusal, Comey said the FBI expected the attorney general to take himself out of the matters under investigation weeks before he actually did. He said under oath at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign.
"We're here, we're queer, get that Cheeto out of here", was among the chants directed at Trump. The White House has repeatedly tried to shift the focus away from the content of Comey's allegations and onto the manner of their release.
That claim is among a number of statements from the president scrutinized in AP Fact Checks over the past week.
The leading Democrat in the Senate on Sunday invited President Donald Trump to tell his side of the story about his contentious relationship with former FBI Director James Comey, as well as shed light on the ongoing probe into Russia's suspected meddling in the general election.
Comey had been leading an FBI investigation into several Trump aides and their s with the Russian government -which United States intelligence agencies say tried to tilt the 2016 election in Trump's favor - before being fired.Читайте также: Golden Knights make move for another first-round pick
She described Mr Comey's testimony as "candid" and "thorough" and said she would support a subpoena if needed.
The House intelligence committee has asked White House counsel Don McGahn whether any tape recordings or memos of Comey's conversations with the president exist now or had existed.
But also, Trumps private attorney Marc Kasowitz noted after the hearing, Comey admitted that he leaked memos of privileged conversations with the president in order to influence the investigation. But now we understand exactly what Comey thinks of the president, and it is a sentiment echoed across social media and cable news stations. He derisively repeated the "leaker" moniker when speaking to reporters in the Rose Garden.
Ari Fleischer, who served as former President George W. Bush's press secretary, also cautioned that Trump should "stop talking" because it could lead to "a perjury trap".
However, the complaints could simply add to the number of investigations under way, increasing the sense of a White House overshadowed by questions about the Trump election campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "There's no, "Hey, I'm hoping".
Comey said on Thursday that he believed that not his alleged incompetence, but the Russian Federation probe made Trump decide to fire him. "Even folks who have been his critics don't question his integrity, his commitment to the rule of law and his intelligence", Warner said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
