Even the White House's timeline for Trump firing James Comey is suspicious

There has been speculation for months about whether Christie will eventually land a job in Trump's administration. The now former Federal Bureau of Investigation director laughed, believing the reports were a prank.

"If you are referring to the Russian Federation investigation, I do". He said acting FBI directors have limited abilities to derail an ongoing investigation. President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday evening. This week it was confirmed that US officials issued grand jury subpoenas seeking business records of associates of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The memo did not mention the ongoing Russian Federation investigation involving Trump associates. If Hillary Clinton had won the election, which thank God she didn't, but if she had... she would have fired Comey immediately. "I think also having a letter like the one that he received and having that conversation that outlined the basic just atrocities in circumventing the chain of command in the Department of Justice", Sanders said. The firing happened the night before, which made it impossible for late night hosts to react, as they film their shows earlier in the day.

Most Democrats have said they prefer the appointment of a special counsel at the Justice Department to oversee the probe since it is the only agency that can bring a criminal case.

Members who aren't on the ballot in 2018, but had been critics of Trump in the past, also said they wanted more answers about how - and why - Comey's dismissal went down. And then he was gone.

Minutes later, Trump welcomed to the Oval Office Henry Kissinger, who served as Secretary of State under Richard Nixon. Democrats have accused the Republican president of trying to foil the FBI's probe into Moscow's actions and many have called for a special prosecutor to look into the Russian Federation matter.

"Perhaps the most startling claim is that Rosenstein threatened to resign after the narrative emerging from the White House on Tuesday evening cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey". He was part of the campaign. "I don't see the crime, so I don't see how it's closing in on Trump". In defending the decision, officials leaned heavily on a memo from Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, that criticized Comey's handling of the Clinton investigation.

"His dismissal further confuses an already hard investigation by the committee", Burr said.

But it's mostly Democrats, including Sen.

"Because one thing we've learned from the last two years of Donald Trump is what it seems like he's doing is exactly what he's doing", Colbert continued.

It's a weak statement from a man who once stood up to Trump during a contentious presidential election, calling him "a con artist" and saying he was too erratic to have access to nuclear codes.

"It is my opinion and belief that the FBI will continue to pursue this investigation vigorously and completely", McCabe said, adding that he saw no "crisis of confidence within the leadership of the FBI". He's wrong. The probe needs to be independent and free of politics.

Current and former officials have said that the president became increasingly dissatisfied with the FBI's response to concerns raised by Trump administration officials about a number of issues, including how the agency was investigated alleged leaks.
