I can't let the media week end without commenting on the incredible irony of President Trump seriously damaging himself in a high-visibility lawsuit by running his mouth in a live, cable TV interview in the friendly confines of Fox News. "Maybe I didn't get her so much". "What people say in the public forum, in a debate, or in a political campaign is not our business".
On Saturday, Trump denied reports in the Washington Post that he privately calls Sessions "Mr Magoo" and Rosenstein "Mister Peepers".
Kennedy said Trump is "way too smart" to fire Mueller, even if the president often vents his frustration about the ongoing Russian Federation probe.
Trump laced into Comey as "a leaker" and "a liar".
Clinton is 'respectful of the norms and traditions that I am so anxious about being eroded today, ' Comey said. "Of course I stayed there", Trump said.
Two of the memos that Comey wrote and then gave to a friend from outside of the government contained classified information, according to the Journal. The memos he kept about his interactions with the president are believed to be evidence in a possible obstruction of justice case against Mr. Trump being pursued by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.
"The question is, would she lie to us", Comey said (emphasis added).
Trump denied ever having that conversation with Comey.
The DOJ's Inspector General is now retrieving some of the missing five months of text messages exchanged between the pair of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents using forensic experts to track "ghost texts", left behind even after they are deleted from the devices, former and current law enforcement officials told this reporter.
Baier played a clip of President Trump in an interview with "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning accusing Comey of leaking classified information to a friend, and asked him to respond to the president's claims. If there was a public interest in keeping the memos secret the day before Comey was sacked, why didn't that public interest matter the day after he was sacked? "He has redefined leaking to mean only disclosing classified information", York said. "He's not making things up", Jordan said.
An FBI director has the power to determine what information is regarded as classified and what is not. "Remember sailor!" Trump tweeted.
On Fox & Friends, Trump again called the Mueller investigation "a witch-hunt" and insisted there was "no collusion".
