Twitter criticizes Trump's dinner with Senators who will question James Comey

A new chapter is about to be opened in the up-and-down relationship between President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey.

"He's not going to take an attack by James Comey laying down", he said.

Republicans are trying to walk a fine line as Comey's testimony looms.

Most major USA television networks plan to carry the event live.

Trump fired Comey last month andappeared to say that he dismissed the FBI director because he disagreed with the direction of the bureau's probe into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Trump was asked directly at a press conference last month if he had "in any way, shape or form" asked Comey to "back down the investigation into Michael Flynn", and he strongly denied it.

Comey may also be asked questions relating to meetings with the president, whether or not any evidence surfaced during the campaign investigation, and also to comment on any specific directives Trump gave Comey during his time at the FBI.

President Trump has scheduled a speech addressing religious conservatives around the same time that former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey is expected to testify before Congress.

Police raid another property over London Bridge terror attack
Speaking to the BBC's Asian Network, an unnamed man said one of the attackers had become more extreme over the past two years. The second terrorist was named as Rachid Redouane , 30, who police said had claimed to be both Moroccan and Libyan.

Trump has consistently pushed back against suggestions that his campaign coordinated with Russian Federation and has called the investigation a hoax.

The tweets do more than simply distract from the administration's attempts to highlight Trump's policies. In the days since Comey's Senate appearance was announced, the person familiar with the former director's account, said Comey has been preparing for his testimony relatively alone, with input from only a few confidants. People are tweeting about places to watch and whether they'll offer morning cocktail specials.

During a public appearance Tuesday, Trump was asked for his message to Comey.

I wish him luck.

Party lines are sharp: Eighty-eight percent of Democrats and almost two-thirds of independents think Trump fired Comey to protect himself; 71 percent of Republicans think it was for the country's good. In the memo, according to sources close to Comey who reviewed it, Trump said: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", during a February meeting.

Trump's White House and its allies are crafting a strategy aimed at undermining Comey's credibility. Across the administration, a sense of mayhem prevails as Trump's staff find themselves unable to plan and are constantly playing defense because of uncertainty over what the president may next say on Twitter or elsewhere, with his positions constantly shifting, one former administration official said.

"National media very much hoping Comey will hammer Trump during his testimony". Ron Wyden, of OR, said Tuesday. Comey may testify about his confidence that Russian hackers targeted American institutions past year, but he's expected to steer clear of details about the ongoing Russia investigation in his hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Groups Distrust of Trump is widespread; as noted, even 48 percent of Republicans express just some or no trust in what the president says about possible Russian influence in the election and related issues, as do 60 percent of conservatives, 65 percent of middle-aged and older adults, 68 percent of men and 71 percent of whites.

Can Apple's HomePod Compete With Amazon's Alexa?
It will block videos that start playing automatically, for instance, and can also prevent ads from following and profiling users. Despite Amazon's dominance, the smart speaker market is still considered a worthwhile investment due to its growth prospects.

Trump had reportedly asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to him, which Comey had declined to do.

"And the conversations that the president had with each of them about investigations are not classified in any way".

"The president's power to assert executive privilege is well-established".

SEAN SPICER: "I have not had a discussion with him about that".

Trump praises Comey: "I respect the fact that Director Comey was able to come back after what he did". Like Coats, Rogers refused to comply with the president's request. Comey is said to have responded only by promising his honesty.

"Regardless of how you feel about Comey, that's not how he should be treated", Warner said Monday. He particularly shouldn't ask about that ongoing investigation that is connected to affiliates of the president.

His words reveal just how quickly things change in Washington politics.

In a memo prepared for Trump's consideration, Rosenstein cited Comey's disputed handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of State as grounds for his dismissal.
