Trump threatens to cancel press briefings, unhappy with Comey coverage

White House press secretary Sean Spicer speaks during the daily press briefing at the White House in Washington Friday

On Friday, a person close to the former director recounted a different version.

It's an apparent reaction to press reports that Trump hosted a private dinner with Comey at the White House back in January at which Trump asked for his loyalty-according to USA media Comey promised only honesty.

Spicer denied that account, insisting that the president simply "wants loyalty to this country and the rule of law".

Mr Comey said that "in times of turbulence, the American people should see the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a rock of competence, honesty, and independence".

But Moss, deputy executive director of the James Madison Project, a Washington-based organization that promotes government accountability, added it is "difficult to say if it is actually illegal, since Comey allegedly responded that Trump was not under investigation". Schumer also asked for details on any meetings Rosenstein had with Trump before drafting the memo - and with Comey about requests for additional resources to aid the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. They also commented only condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

Sanders faced backlash from the press Thursday during her briefing.

Trump was widely known to record some phone conversations at his office in Trump Tower during his business career, sometimes remarking to aides after a call as to whether or not he had taped it.

"I don't know if there was collusion or not", Clapper said in an interview on MSNBC.

Trump asked Comey when he would dispel investigation rumors
Rosenstein had been put in charge of the probe as soon as he was confirmed because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself. On Fox News, Sean Hannity warned Wednesday of a "destroy Trump alliance" that is now "aligning to take down President Trump".

Spicer, who kept his answers short during Friday's briefing and largely dodged specific questions about Trump's meeting with Comey, said he was not aware that any recording of the Trump-Comey meeting exists. In testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday, McCabe said he was unaware of the request - and that he believed the FBI had adequate resources for the investigation.

"Does he think it's appropriate to threaten someone like Mr. Comey not to speak?"

The president has been concerned about leaks for some time.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Trump fired Comey only after getting a recommendation from the Department of Justice.

The committee had hoped to hear from Comey in a closed session following his abrupt firing on Tuesday by President Donald Trump.

After Trump chose to fire Comey, he was told by aides that Democrats would likely react positively to the news given the role many believe Comey played in Hillary Clinton's defeat a year ago. Trump made the comment in Washington, D.C., on May 11 in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, two days after he fired FBI Director James Comey.

Trump's nominee must be confirmed in the Senate, where Democrats and some Republicans have fiercely criticized Comey's firing.

As Trump works to fast-track Comey's successor, lawmakers from both parties urged him to steer clear of any politicians for the job and say he must "clean up the mess that he mostly created".
