Trump says he will make 'fast decision' on Comey replacement

Burr said because there has been no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russian Federation it is unlikely FBI Director James Comey was sacked to impede the ongoing investigation, media reported.
Critics have assailed Mr Trump for abruptly dismissing Mr Comey just as the agency is investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election, and possible Moscow ties to the Trump presidential campaign. "Democrats say it looks like he was trying to provide legitimacy and the power of his reputation to cover for a decision the president made for other reasons".
Here are eight things that happened after Comey was sacked.
Rosenstein met with Mr. Trump Monday before writing a memo criticizing Comey for his handling of the investigation in Hillary Clinton's email use. Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was filling in for Spicer while he was off with the Navy, but of course, even she fell victim to the incessant leaks of the Trump administration.
But on Thursday, Mr Trump told NBC that "regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey".

Things got pretty testy Friday morning when Donald Trump threatened to end all daily White House press briefings because "it is not possible" for his staff to speak with "perfect accuracy" to the American public.
Trump sent out two tweets Friday that suggested he would cancel White House press briefings and instead hand out written statements to communicate with the public.
During a Thursday interview with NBC's Lester Holt, Trump said he made the decision to fire Comey on his own, and that he would have done it regardless of what Rosenstein recommended, adding that he had been thinking of "this Russian Federation thing with Trump" when he came to his decision to fire Comey.
In perhaps another sign of mixed messaging from the Trump administration, Vice President Mike Pence said that when Mr Rosenstein "brought the recommendation to the president that the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation should be removed, President Trump provided the kind of strong and decisive leadership the American people have come to be accustomed from him".
The Trump administration is looking to fill the job, which requires Senate confirmation, after Trump abruptly fired Director James Comey on Tuesday. However, the original article was amended for the sake of accuracy: Spicer and his staff had been standing "among" the bushes, apparently.

Trump said the candidates under consideration to lead the FBI - White House officials have identified 11 of them so far - are "outstanding people". "In one case I called him, and in once case he called me".
Comey has not confirmed Trump's account.
Mr Comey reportedly said he hopes there are tapes of his various conversations with Mr Trump. David Cohen, the former deputy director of the CIA, is among those alarmed by the decision to allow a Tass news agency photographer into the Oval Office, which some argued could present a security risk.
