When asked about his Friday morning tweet that Comey "better hope that there are no "tapes" of their conversations, Trump said, "Well, that I can't talk about".

Trump said that in those conversations Comey told him he wasn't under investigation.

It was Trump's first public event outside the White House since Comey's ouster.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer flatly denied a loyalty pledge was ever brought up at the private White House dinner. John Cornyn, South Carolina U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, former MI U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Fisher, who would be the first woman to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation if selected, was the first of the candidates to be interviewed, pulling into the Justice Department in a BMW just before 8 a.m. and leaving a little more than an hour later.

"We can make a fast decision", Trump told reporters Saturday aboard Air Force One before flying to Lynchburg, Virginia to deliver a commencement address at Liberty University.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein still sees no reason for an independent special prosecutor to investigate possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, CNN reported Friday.

Pressed by Pirro on whether he asked Comey for his loyalty, Trump responded: "No, I didn't, but I don't think it would be a bad question to ask".

Wayne Rooney sends message to Jose Mourinho: I want to do this
Jose Mourinho's side have yet to win a game away to their direct rivals, and have yet to even score a goal against them. Sunday's win ended the hoodoo and earned Arsenal only their 13th league win in 50 outings against the Red Devils.

Democrats quickly seized on the dispute, demanding the White House turn over any tapes that might exist of the president's conversations with Comey.

-U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson, a Bush appointee who struck down the centerpiece of the Obama administration's health care law in 2010.

The president said the Democrats were being "hypocrites" for their criticism about Comey's dismissal as they themselves were displeased with the FBI's handing of the investigations into Hillary Clinton's emails.

Almost a dozen people are being considered, including attorneys, law enforcement officials, and lawmakers.

Trump, in an NBC interview on Thursday, said that he had been intending to fire Comey - whom he derided as a "showboat" and "grandstander" - for months and that it had nothing to do with the Russian Federation investigation. Getting to the bottom of exactly why Comey was sacked would go a long way to restoring public trust, but we must go further to remove Washington's toxic partisanship from the investigation.

At least eight candidates for the bureau's top spot headed to the Department of Justice on Saturday to interview for the position, which was vacated when James Comey was sacked this week.

However, as Krishnamoorthi pointed out in his statement, Sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation due to his contact with the Kremlin. Aides later said the president had been considering firing Comey for months, and Trump said he would have made the decision regardless of the Justice Department recommendation.
