Trump tweets warning to Comey about 'leaking to the press'

Trump tweets warning to Comey about 'leaking to the press'

Liberty's president, Jerry Falwell, Jr., was a key early supporter of Trump during his campaign and helped rally support among religious conservatives.

Mr Trump said it was "possible" he could name someone by Friday, before he leaves for his first foreign trip.

"I think the President wants loyalty to his country and to the rule of law", Spicer said. "[The candidates] have been vetted over their lifetime essentially, but very well-known, highly respected, really talented people".

US media quoted an unnamed White House official as saying that 11 candidates are being considered, including acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. They said his firing has "the appearance - if not the reality - of interfering" with the FBI's ongoing probe into whether Trump's campaign associates colluded with Russians to sway election results.

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.

"Under normal circumstances, we would not consider credible any claims that the White House may have taped conversations of meetings with the President", the letter stated.

The president's Twitter storm yesterday also included threats to do away with popular White House press briefings, which cable networks have carried live since Trump rode into office.

But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the full Senate next week, as the fallout over Comey's termination threatened to consume more time on Capitol Hill.

Joe Biden says he could be open to presidential run

Ford updates its 2016 vehicles to support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
To get the update over-the-air, a Ford SYNC 3-equipped vehicle must have Wi-Fi compatibility and automatic system updates enabled. Android Auto is compatible with Android-powered mobile devices with version 5.0 or higher of the operating system.

The FBI director serves a 10-year term but can be replaced by the president.

On Friday, Trump waded back into the Federal Bureau of Investigation controversy, warning Comey against talking to the media and suggesting on Twitter there may be recordings of conversations between them.

Lawmakers from both parties also criticized Trump's actions last week, which included changing explanations from the White House for the firing and an ominous tweet by Trump that warned Comey against leaks to the press because he may have "tapes" of their conversations.

The other two candidates named in the United States press are New York Appeals Court Judge Michael Garcia and senior lawyer Alice Fisher.

The Illinois lawmaker asked for confirmation of any taping system in any location, and any tapes or recordings of White House conversations, particularly with Comey, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whom Trump fired on February 13, and with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

"No, I didn't, but I don't think it would be a bad question to ask", the president told Pirro.

Fisher was assistant attorney general for the department's criminal division under President George W. Bush.

Clapper also told MSNBC that he didn't know if there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, contradicting the president's assertion that the former director had cleared him of wrongdoing.
