What!? Trump Now Insists James Comey Testimony Was True

Trump Indicates Tape Tweet Was Meant to Affect Comey Testimony

Trump Indicates Tape Tweet Was Meant to Affect Comey Testimony

Trump accused Mueller of hiring "all Hillary Clinton supporters" to staff the investigation.

Without recordings, Comey's version of his conversations with Trump - which he documented at the time, shared with close associates and testified about to Congress - will likely play a key role as prosecutors consider whether Trump inappropriately pressured the lawman to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The president closed on a more positive note, saying, "Robert Mueller's an honorable man and hopefully he'll come up with an honorable solution".

When asked directly whether Mr Mueller's friendship with the fired FBI director meant he should recuse himself from the investigation, the President said: "Well, he's very, very good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome".

Schumer: GOP Healthcare Bill Rotten At The Core
Mike Lee of Utah jointly announced their opposition to the legislation as written last Thursday, the same day it was released. Both bills also would phase out funding for Obamacare's Medicaid expansion; the Senate bill does so under a longer timeframe.

Trump had also taken to Twitter to complain that the investigations by the FBI and Congress into allegations of improper links with Russian Federation and possible obstruction of justice constituted "the single greatest Witch hunt in American political history". "There has been no collusion. There has been leaking by Comey". "But there's been no collusion, no obstruction, and virtually everybody agrees to that".

"I think he was in his way instinctively trying to rattle Comey", former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a longtime Trump confidant, said before the Thursday tweets. The first lady did a decent enough job pretending that she wasn't dying inside when she said she was she was looking forward to Thursday evening's congressional picnic.

Mr Comey also said that Mr Trump asked him for "loyalty" - which Mr Trump emphatically denies. "We're going to have to see".

Referring to Mr. Comey, the president said that "when he found out that I, you know, that there may be tapes out there whether it's governmental tapes or anything else and who knows, I think his story may have changed".

Jewish groups criticize Supreme Court travel ban decision
In a statement after the court's announcement, Trump said the high court's decision was a "clear victory" for national security. What's not bona fide? They said they would have revived the travel ban in its entirety while the court considered the case.

Mr Trump showed concern about that situation as well, telling Fox that Mr Mueller is "very, very good friends with Comey which is bothersome".

Trump suggested that his threat of tapes may have intimidated Comey into being more honest in his recollection of events. But you'll have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed.

His comments came after he finally admitted on Thursday that he does not have "tapes" of his conversations with Comey. My story was always a straight story.

There will be a temptation to laugh this episode off as yet another example of Trump just being Trump and to not take it very seriously (after all, his cult often tells us he is not to be taken literally). "And I don't have any tape, and I didn't tape".
