White House responds to Comey tape inquiry with Trump tweet

For the same reason, Trump thinks they are friends and it’s wrong of Mueller to investigate Comey’s case.”This investigation should not be centered around President Trump, as multiple high-ranking officials, including Mr. Comey and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, have stated that they have not seen any evidence that he colluded with Russian Federation or that he was under investigation”, he said. A former federal prosecutor, David Kelley, says Mueller and Comey haven’t visited each other’s homes and rarely shared a meal together. In response, #Senator Mark Warner wrote, “This organization never stops to stun me”.Trump’s social-media missives prompted Comey to share with an associate a memo documenting Trump’s request that the FBI “let go” of its investigation into his ousted national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Trump was asked, whether Mueller should step down into the examination, on account of his friendship with Comey? He told Fox News he hasn’t ruled out firing Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.The president then tweeted that Comey had “better hope there are no “tapes” of our conversations”.”It’s an unbelievable thing”, Trump said in another Fox interview that is scheduled to air on Sunday, excerpts from which were released Friday afternoon.President Trump told Fox News on Friday that Mueller’s friendship with Comey “very bothersome”, nothing they were “very, very good friends”.Legal experts say whatever connection they do have doesn’t come close to meriting Mueller’s removal as special counsel.White House spokesman Sean Spicer said at a news briefing that the administration would respond.”Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russian Federation a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it”, Trump said, according to excerpts from a Fox News interview to be broadcast on Sunday.He said, Trump’s tweet has no impact on the advisory group’s examination of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
