The White House initially said President Donald Trump made the call at the recommendation of the top two officials at the Justice Department, but in an NBC News interview that aired Thursday, the president said he would have fired Comey even without the recommendation.

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" It's also unclear how much Clapper would know about developments in the investigation after he left office earlier this year.

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that just 29% of Americans approve of Trump's decision to fire Comey, compared to 38% who disapprove.

Comey has not confirmed Trump's account of discussions that included the FBI's probe of Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations of Trump campaign collaboration with the Russians.

While discussing classified matters with an adversary would be illegal for most people, the president has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that Trump's disclosures broke the law, the Post said.

Trump asked Comey to end his investigation of Michael Flynn one day after he fired him, according to a memo written by Comey detailing their discussion.

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign of interference in the election, US intelligence agencies concluded in January, aimed at tilting the vote in Trump's favor.

The New York Times reported on Friday that Comey had resisted a request from Trump that he pledge loyalty to the President.

Even before Trump's provocative tweets, the White House was scrambling to clarify why Comey was sacked.

The shifting accounts of the decision to fire Comey, whom Trump derided as a "showboat" and "grandstander", added to a mounting sense of uncertainty and chaos in the West Wing, as aides scrambled to get their stories straight and appease an angry president.

US President Donald Trump disclosed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister during their meeting last week, potentially jeopardising a source of intelligence about ISIL, The Washington Post reported on Monday, citing current and former US officials.

Comey has not yet responded to the Senate intelligence committee's invitation to testify in closed session next week, Democratic and Republican spokespersons for the committee told CNN Friday. "He's unsafe because he may be obstructing justice in terms of the investigation. and secondly his credibility has been destroyed".

Rod Rosenstein Knew Comey Was to be Fired Before He Wrote Memo
Rosenstein learned about Trump's plan on May 8, Durbin said. "Russia's fine", Trump said. "We are looking at counterintelligence". And I think Jonah's right: The appointment of a special counsel is what the president needs and helps him in the short run.

He also said that he had heard he was not under investigation during a committee hearing.

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!"

The newspaper said the information Trump relayed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak had been provided by a U.S. partner through a highly sensitive intelligence-sharing arrangement.

But he also said, "In fact when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won".

He said he never pressured Comey into dropping the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, adding: "If Russia did anything, I want to know that".

The remark is an extraordinary development in the ongoing feud between the President and the agencies investigating alleged ties between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Steinhaus to become first female referee in Bundesliga
Steinhaus was designated as one of the refs at the Women's World Cup finals in 2011 and 2015 as well as the 2012 London Olympics . The German Football Association ( DFB ) hopes the announcement will encourage more females to become referees.

The initial, official White House version of how Comey came to be fired was that deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, fresh on the job, wrote a memo expressing concern about the way Comey had handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation. "Regardless of recommendation I was going to fire Comey".
