How Trump's Comey 'Tapes' Trick Led to Special Counsel Appointment

Pro-Trump group launches new attack ad against Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Pro-Trump group launches new attack ad against Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Great America Alliance Continues Scorched Earth Anti-Comey Brigade The super PAC behind this ad has been one of the leading voices trying to back up the president and discredit everyone else involved in the Russian Federation investigation. But, Mr. Comey didn't listen to my request for transparency. And how did we all learn about this truth?

In 2016, the Great America PAC was the largest and most effective pro-Trump Super PAC, raising and deploying $30 million in support of the president's candidacy. They insisted that Mr. Comey would never tell the president that he was not under investigation. We now know this was a bluff, perhaps meant to coax Mr. Comey to keep quiet about his conversations with Mr. Trump. The Fox reporter told Trump that was a "smart way" to make sure Comey stays honest and Trump responded.

Ravel ban, church-state case await action by Supreme Court
Regional federal appeals courts in Virginia and California both upheld district judge injunctions blocking the order. In this photo taken on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, the Supreme Court Building is seen in Washington.

Grassley recounted a meeting he had with former FBI Director James Comey in March where he told Grassley and Senator Diane Feinstein, ranking minority member of the Judiciary Committee, that President Trump was not under investigation.

"I have to note something else here". He had also told the gang of eight. But even after Mr. Comey told the Gang of Eight that the president wasn't under investigation, the minority leader told the media that the president was under investigation. Far from keeping Mr. Comey quiet, Mr. Trump's "tapes" tweet led to the creation of a mortal threat to his Presidency.

The suspect, who is believed to have been from Weston-super-Mare, remains in custody at a south London police station. In a statement on behalf of his family, Osborne's nephew, Ellis Osborne said: "We are massively shocked".

Grassley provides a specific example of Schumer's knowingly untrue public statements about the president being under investigation.

Grassley recalled when Schumer stated that the Senate should not confirm then Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch because Trump was under investigation.

BET Awards sees Remy Ma beat Nicki Minaj as 90s R&B shines
When the artist born Chancelor Bennett took the stage at downtown's Microsoft Theater , he said he hadn't prepared a speech. Bruno Mars performs "Perm" at the BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, June 25, 2017, in Los Angeles.

"FBI director Comey leaks information to the press hoping to start an investigation", Lahren says. "The title echoes Trump's criticism of the investigation, which he has called a "witch hunt" on Twitter several times". "The Minority Leader even tried to say that the Senate shouldn't vote on the Supreme Court nomination because the president was under investigation". If Mr. Comey had just been transparent with the public as I urged him to be, it could have been avoided.
