Russia Probe Names Current White House Official as 'Significant Person of Interest'

Malita Javier | 21 May, 2017, 17:31

The developments were a blow to White House efforts to tamp down interest in the Russian Federation investigation as Trump and his staff boarded Air Force One for Saudi Arabia, first stop on his first foreign trip as president. It appears to be another incidence of Trump claiming he fired Comey because of the Russian investigation, contradicting the official reason given by the White House. Comey was just completely disgusted by.the episode.

Wittes added that Comey was uncomfortable with the president's attempts to build a personal relationship, which he considered to be inappropriate.

Before the dinner in which Trump reportedly asked for a loyalty pledge, Comey "practiced Trump's likely questions and his answers with a small group of his most trusted confidants".

Numerous interactions between Comey and Trump were detailed in the extensive memos that Comey kept and distributed amongst his staff.

"Donald Trump should start every morning with a tweet about what he is doing that day to help working-class Americans", said Republican strategist Alex Conant.

Trump told Russia's ambassador and foreign minister last week that James Comey, the ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was "a real nut job" whose departure would make life easier for him.

May says United Kingdom to continue to share intelligence with US
The report notes that Trump disclosed the information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U. Later, White House officials went into damage-limitation mode with calls to the CIA and National Security Agency (NSA).

The election interference aspect, which was first alleged in October in a report by the United States intelligence community, appears to be an accepted fact, said Democratic representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who has been at the centre of some of the more explosive congressional revelations about the Russian Federation probe.

Before the latest reports, the White House had hoped to shift attention away from the political firestorm in Washington to foreign policy as well as the president's ambitious pro-business economic agenda in Congress.

You'd never know from the video, for example, that Comey was dreading attending the reception. But with almost 30 million Twitter followers, Trump has resisted giving up his ability to battle the news media and investigators through a tool that he believes allows him to cut through the filter of the mainstream media.

"I think it's totally ridiculous".

JOHNS: Wittes says Comey tried to establish boundaries with the President.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment on whether it is reviewing the ethics rule in order to undermine Mueller's credibility.

MICHAEL SCHMIDT: Comey's in the Blue Room, Comey's standing there, and he is very concerned about being at the White House.

SCHMIDT: Comey loves his independence, he's obsessed with it.

James Comey sits beside a blue curtain while wearing a blue suit.

SCARBOROUGH: And he's on the other side of the room, too. "Democrats, you got what you wanted". Comey's friend, Benjamin Wittes of the Brookings Institution, tells the Times he had lunch with Comey in March. Waters went on MSNBC's Morning Joe, where she went on a unsubstantiated screed about how the strategies employed by the Trump campaign during the election were from Putin's playbook, and that all the dots need to be connected, and all the facts need to be analyzed, but in the end-all roads lead to Trump.

"Nixon was much more circumspect than Donald Trump and, frankly, much more aware of what his own legal exposure was", said Ken Hughes, a scholar at the University of Virginia's Miller Centre. "He's become more famous than me".

WITTES: Comey was just completely disgusted by the episode.
