Comey's 'smoking gun' could take out Trump

The brief news conference - where each President will take two questions from the press - comes the day after James Comey's bombshell Capitol Hill testimony in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director accused the White House of "lies".

In a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis Friday, Trump picked on ABC News' Jonathan Karl to ask a question. Comey said that Trump asked him specifically whether he could drop the investigation with respect to Flynn, the former national security adviser whom Trump fired for withholding information about his contacts with foreign governments.

Trump Jr. declined to comment Friday about his tweets, leaving unanswered questions as to whether they were urged by the White House, which outsourced its Comey response to the Republican National Committee and the president's personal lawyer. Then, according to Comey's contemporaneous memo, the president said, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go". A Wall Street Journal editorial even said Mr. Comey "should have resigned if he believes what he now says".

In a later conversation with Sessions, in which the attorney general shared Trump's concerns over leaks, Comey said he "took the opportunity to implore the attorney general to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me".

Trump also denied asking Comey for a pledge of loyalty.

The White House also highlighted the fact Mr Comey stopped short of accusing Mr Trump of obstructing justice - a potentially impeachable offence. "I knew that there might come a day where I might need a record of what happened".

Trump's lawyers are sifting through additional information and preparing at least one submission, and a meeting scheduled for Wednesday may clarify the proper avenue for the complaint, he said. Asked if he would make that denial under oath, he said, "100 percent".

Former NBAer Dennis Rodman Is Back in North Korea
A senior administration official said the Trump administration did not authorize Rodman's trip. "We are aware of his visit", Mr. He made headlines after befriending North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on previous trips to Pyongyang in 2013 and 2014.

It is understandable that James Comey would throw Donald Trump under the bus.

"I'm not hinting at anything", Trump said, but then he teased, "You'll be very disappointed".

Mr Comey had first recorded details of his interactions with the President in a series of memos. The goal of the call was to have Comey publicly announce that Trump wasn't personally being investigated. That led the Senate Judiciary Committee to ask Richman for the memo on June 9.

Trump made the remarks while responding to questions on Comey's explosive testimony in which he accused the president of trying to stop a probe into the alleged Russian interference in the United States elections previous year. But we were very, very happy and, frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said.

"He gave his notes to a Columbia law professor because he wasn't man enough to give the notes directly to the media when he wanted them out to the media", Lewandowski told NBC's morning show "Today".

"In August 2016, when the Trump campaign announced the hiring of Steve Bannon as campaign CEO and the appointment of Kellyanne Conway as campaign manager, its statement quoted Trump as saying: "'I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years".
