Donald Trump feels 'totally vindicated' by James Comey statement: attorney

Irune Rengel | 08 Junio, 2017, 17:29

Comey's claims about being pressured by Trump could become a focus of the probe by Robert S. Mueller, the former FBI director appointed to serve as a special counsel overseeing the investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

In his seven-page testimony, Comey wrote that he found Trump's intervention "very concerning", reported The Guardian.

"He is eager to continue to move forward with his agenda", Kasowitz concluded.

Comey has not spoken publicly since he was abruptly fired by Trump on May 9.

The statement is a series of bombshell revelations that if true, constitute acts of obstruction of justice from the president himself.

"Wray. seems to fit the bill for an independent prosecutor career professional type", Ryan said.

"Because the set-up made me uneasy, I added that I was not "reliable" in the way politicians use that word, but he could always count on me to tell him the truth", Comey said. They key question at hand: Did Trump put pressure on Comey to back off the investigation, potentially obstructing justice in the process?

That morning, Intelligence Committee members heard testimony from Navy Adm. Mike Rodgers, the head of the National Security Agency, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

And yes, one bar, Shaw's Tavern, will be serving a special "covfefe" cocktail, named after President Donald Trump's mysterious Twitter typo.

"He won't answer questions about the ongoing FBI investigation into Russian meddling and the administration being involved", Jacobs said.

The White House dismissed reports about it as inaccurate. Roy Blunt says he will not be satisfied if former FBI Director James Comey tells only what he wants to. Comey said he paused, and said: "You will get that from me", although Comey said it was possible he and Trump "understood the phrase "honest loyalty" differently".

However, Trump felt "completely and totally vindicated" by the written testimony, his private attorney said, as Comey confirmed he had told the president he was not personally under investigation.

The former director of the FBI is expected to tell Congress that the president of the United States asked him to lay off an investigation to protect a disgraced former national security adviser. "He is a good guy", Comey recalls Trump as saying.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Me.), also on the committee, said it would be "inappropriate" for Trump to ask for a pledge of loyalty from an Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and said that "this is an issue we need to learn more about".

Asked if the president stood by earlier assertions that he had neither sought Comey's loyalty nor asked for the Flynn investigation to be dropped, she said: "I can't imagine the president not standing by his own statement".

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifying before the House intelligence committee on March 20.

Mr Comey's testimony on Capitol Hill on Thursday will be his first public comments since he was ignominiously pushed from office. Dianne Feinstein (D- Cali.) indicated that Comey would be asked to produce the memos and notes from the time of his firing and said they could issue a subpoena for such documents.

"I do think he will speak to the details of not just his interactions with Trump, but his perceptions, his judgments".
