Trump tweets he 'never fired' Comey over Russia, contradicting reports about memo

McCabe Gave Mueller a Secret Memo that Could Contain Crucial Information About Trump Firing Comey: Report

Source: Ex-FBI Official Wrote Memo on Comey Firing

Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

As CNN previously reported, McCabe has turned over his other contemporaneous notes to Mueller, which detail what Comey shared with McCabe about his private interactions with Trump while he was Federal Bureau of Investigation director. Trump tweeted. "The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!"

A few days later, Trump told NBC's Lester Holt he was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired Comey.

"And, in fact, when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said: 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won, '" Trump said.

Kanye West releases highly-anticipated album ye
Pusha-T posted the image on Instagram - caption: "I finally got my album art" - and many people protested. We've been through a lot together this Kanye West album cycle.

The review is mostly focused on DOJ's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Comey told The Associated Press in an interview this month that he saw telling Trump privately - at a January 2017 Trump Tower meeting - that he wasn't under investigation as a way to lower the "temperature" of an otherwise tense encounter before the president took office. President Donald Trump has frequently attacked the FBI's former No. 2 official, largely over political donations his wife took from an ally of Hillary Clinton when she ran for a seat in the Virginia legislature. Comey's firing is one part of Mueller's inquiries into whether Trump tried to obstruct the investigation. Or is the New York Times' scoop from yesterday a bit of old news that just happened to shake loose recently?

The president said this week that he wished he appointed a different attorney general.

"Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department's senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately". "Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy". Maybe I'll expand that - you know, I'll lengthen the time because it should be over with. I don't believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date. Same with lying James Comey.

"So, you got a group there, a lynching mob, so let them do their job and, boy, we're ready to knock the heck out of you with our report, which will be authoritative", Giuliani said.

Earlier this month, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked by a reporter to reconcile the multiple rationales that team Trump has advanced about why, exactly, Comey was sacked. The informant communicated with Trump campaign advisers George Papadopoulos, Carter Page and Sam Clovis.

"The corrupt Mainstream Media is working overtime not to mention the infiltration of people, Spies (Informants), into my campaign! Surveillance much?" he added.

The president has dubbed the revelations of the Federal Bureau of Investigation informant as "SPYGATE" and called it "one of the biggest political scandals in US history".
