Trump Finds Comey-Mueller Friendship 'Bothersome'

Trump Finds Comey-Mueller Friendship 'Bothersome'”

By a 2-to-1 margin, Americans say they are more likely to believe former FBI Director James Comey than President Donald Trump when it comes to their differing accounts of events that led up to Comey's firing, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Mr Trump had earlier questioned Robert Mueller's integrity in an interview with Fox News.

Schiff said in a statement on Thursday that Trump's Twitter comment stopped short of denying the White House had tapes or recordings and said the White House must respond in writing. You will have to take a look at that because then he has to tell what actually took place at the events, and my story didn't change. Comey also said Trump lied when he claimed the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in disarray at the time of Comey's dismissal.

The Department of Justice brought in former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as a special counsel for its Russian Federation investigation. Investigators will also weigh the credibility of Comey against a president who has shown a wobbly commitment to accuracy.

"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 president appeared to enjoy ginning up mystery and spinning Washington reporters about the possibility there was a trove of surreptitiously recorded Oval Office conversations. "And if you look further back before he heard about that, I think maybe he wasn't admitting that". "I mean the whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth, from that standpoint".

Thursday's revelation came a day ahead of a deadline to turn over any tapes to the House intelligence committee. Advisers who speak to Trump regularly have said he had not mentioned the existence of tapes during their conversations.
