Whether all of this could jeopardize the survival of Trump's presidency is another question, and one whose answer is much farther down the road. "The tweet speaks for itself", Spicer said. Sessions has faced questions over whether his involvement in Comey's firing violates his pledge to recuse himself from investigations into Russian interference in the election.

The Trump administration was criticized this week when Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders struggled to reconcile conflicting statements made by President Trump regarding the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

During the dinner, Comey refused to pledge his loyalty and instead offered the president his honesty.

Soon after Trump's tweets, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., requested that White House Counsel Donald McGahn turn over any recordings of the president's conversations with Comey to the House Oversight Committee.

Details of the dinner were first reported by The New York Times.

"As I've said for the third time, there is nothing further to add on that", Spicer responded.

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Nixon, having lost the support of his own party, resigned after the House Judiciary Committee passed three articles of impeachment in connection with the Watergate scandal; Clinton remained in office after being acquitted by the Senate in articles that stemmed from his alleged efforts to cover up an extramarital affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Trump made the tweet shortly after The New York Times, citing two anonymous sources, reported that Comey believed he was sacked partly because of his refusal to pledge his loyalty to the president. Krishnamoorthi also asked for any recording of Trump's Wednesday meeting with Russian officials, and "any conversations regarding the hiring or firing" former national security adviser Michael Flynn. And while 61% of respondents said Trump's decision did not change their opinion of the president, 30% of respondents said they had a less favorable impression of Trump now, versus just 6% who said they had a more favorable view.

Durbin added, "His credibility has been destroyed".

Durbin, on "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, suggested that the president's move to fire Comey amid its Trump-Russia investigation was "dangerous because he may be obstructing justice". "No one has ever achieved anything significant without a chorus of critics standing on the sidelines explaining why it can't be done", Trump said.

Trump said the candidates to replace Comey were "outstanding people" and "very well known".

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said promoting an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent to lead the agency would allow the nation to "reset".

Late Tuesday, White House officials insisted that Comey was ousted because of his conduct in the probe into Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information previous year. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Republican Sen.

Trump's comments appear to confirm multiple reports that his administration had been shocked at the widespread outrage over Comey's firing.
