Lawmakers urge Trump to avoid picking a partisan for Federal Bureau of Investigation job

President Trump threatened former FBI Director James Comey around the possibility that their private conversations were recorded.

President Donald Trump took to twitter Friday morning to issue a dire warning to former FBI Director James Comey about trying to influence media coverage of his firing.

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.

Well-sourced reports in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other news outlets agreed on a very different explanation: Trump had grown increasingly angry at the doggedness with which Comey's FBI was investigating how and why Russian Federation meddled in the election.

The blowback against the firing of Comey angered the increasingly frustrated president, who made the decision after consulting only a small group of advisers, anxious the news would leak out.

The shifting accounts of the decision to fire Comey, whom Trump derided as a "showboat" and "grandstander", added to a mounting sense of uncertainty and chaos in the West Wing, as aides scrambled to get their stories straight and appease an angry president.

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., quickly spoke out against President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey. He dismissed as less desirable at least two of the 14 candidates under consideration by Trump, former Rep. Mike Rogers of MI and Sen. Trump tweeted. "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???" "President Trump has fired the individual most central to all the investigations into any illicit involvement with the Russian government".

White House officials said Trump is considering almost a dozen candidates to replace Comey, Including Texas Sen. He said the discussions happened in two phone calls and at a dinner in which Comey was asking to keep his job.

It's unclear why Comey turned down the offer to speak to the committee next week.

"I would note that NY is a one-party consent state, and President Trump has always abided by the law", said Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide.

Trump threatens to cancel press briefings, unhappy with Comey coverage

However, the walk-in x-ray services for patients referred by their Global Positioning System will remain closed throughout Monday. When the computer virus struck on Friday 47 trusts were affected and seven had to close their doors in A&E to ambulances.

The White House refusal to elaborate left open several questions: Was Trump, as his predecessor had in the 1970s, been covertly taping conversations?

Trump unsuccessfully asked for Comey's loyalty again during the dinner, and Comey again declined, The Times said.

"The president's one page letter was completely freaky", said Sen.

A Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted last week found that 62% of Republicans and just 16% of Democrats thought Trump was right to fire Comey, while 58% of Republicans and just 9% of Democrats told NBC they approved of Trump's decision.

Pearson reported from NY.

Federal Bureau of Investigation directors have predominantly been drawn from the ranks of prosecutors and judges.

TASS has expressed surprise over the United States media's response and asked Russian and worldwide organizations of journalists to express their attitude to the affair.

Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced backlash from the press Thursday during her briefing after her comments on the Comey timeline conflicted with Trump's remarks to NBC.

Multiple people close to Trump have been entangled in the Russian Federation investigation, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. Trump's tweet, he added, was "inappropriate". John Cornyn, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, former Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
