Of The Wildest Revelations In The Comey Memos

Of The Wildest Revelations In The Comey Memos

Former FBI director James Comey's unclassified memos detail Donald Trump's displeasure at belatedly hearing that a foreign leader, whose name has been redacted, had been the first to congratulate him on his inauguration-and that national security adviser Mike Flynn hadn't told him for days.

President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly attacked McCabe and Comey, tweeted Thursday: "James Comey just threw Andrew McCabe 'under the bus.' Inspector General's Report on McCabe is a disaster for both of them!"

During the 2016 campaign, he claimed there had not been "any successful radical Islamic attacks in the United States" in the eight years before former president Barack Obama took office, seeming to forget the 2001 attacks, when almost 3,000 people died.

The memos were provided to Congress as House Republicans escalated criticism of the Justice Department, threatening to subpoena the documents and questioning officials.

Even as federal prosecutors, bloodhound noses to the ground, start sifting through files from a raid of fixer Michael Cohen's office, even as Special Counsel Robert Mueller tries to set a date to interview President Trump under terms and conditions yet to be determined, Rudy Giuliani, sniffing something, joins the President's legal team with promises to bring Mueller's investigation to a swift conclusion.

The Comey saga gained momentum Thursday with the release of his memos on meetings with Trump. "But The Wall Street Journal has reported that there were only two memos that Comey gave to his friend that had any classified information", Mulroy said.

"It's too bad the OSC didn't have Comey's book and his memos before he was sacked, because he has made the case - better than anyone else - that he was playing politics at the FBI, Mr. Clevenger said".

Mr Trump claimed vindication after the release of the memos. Trump later acknowledged that he had taken the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election into consideration when he dismissed Comey.

"I think the way in which he acts, especially his corrosive effect on norms - truth-telling being the most important of them - has that staining effect on institutions and people who are close to them", he said.

The memos, which Mr Comey wrote immediately after several meetings with Mr Trump in the weeks after his inauguration on 20 January 2017, depict a president deeply anxious about the impact of the probe into Russian meddling in the election the previous year.

The rest of the Kings XI batting lineup were reduced to supporting roles with Karun Nair's 31 being the next highest score. Kane Williamson , the captain of the Sunrisers, sported his expertise in making crucial strategy in the field.

Comey says the issue came up again in the Oval Office.

Macmillan, Comey's publisher, ordered 850,000 copies to meet expected demand compared with Wolff's first print run of 150,000. Flynn is now cooperating with Mueller's investigators. Trump told Comey it was "nonsense", but acknowledged Russian President Vladimir Putin told him "we have some of the most attractive hookers in the world".

Meanwhile, Comey is scheduled to speak at Amazon's corporate headquarters next week to talk about his new book. But he said that excerpts he had seen were "disappointing" and appeared to get too much into Comey's "personal reactions".

President Donald Trump has questioned the legality of the special counsel, who is conducting a probe into Russian Federation interference in the 2016 presidential election, alleged collusion by the Trump campaign and obstruction of justice.

Comey has said that McCabe did not tell him those specifics, and that he was left with the opposite impression.
