Comey denies release of memo contents was a 'leak'

James Comey said the things I have been saying about President Trump ever since he began running for president in his recent interview.

Mr Trump called in to the popular breakfast show Fox and Friends on Thursday to mark the occasion of First Lady Melania Trump's birthday, he said.

In attacking the DOJ and its failure to prosecute Comey, among others, Trump said the department is one "I try to stay away from, but at some point, I won't".

Fox News released a poll this week that they conducted that actually had some results that I'm sure that they didn't want to reveal to the public because according to Fox News own poll, a majority of people in this country, Democrats and Republicans, actually believe that Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor, is going to uncover impeachable criminal offenses committed by Donald Trump. "That memo was unclassified then, it's still unclassified".

Trump has not yet tweeted any reference to the big headline of yesterday's half-hour Fox & Friends phoner that's giving his attorneys so much to think about.

Before he was a candidate, Trump phoned into "Fox & Friends" on an almost-weekly basis.

Comey has said that Trump's leadership style is "strikingly similar" to that of a mob boss in his new memoir. Mr. Comey also fails to note that the star witness against Mr. Libby, former New York Times reporter Judith Miller, recanted her testimony in 2015. Mr. Comey writes that in 2003 he was drawn into the Valerie Plame investigation when administration officials leaked the identity of "a covert Central Intelligence Agency employee", allegedly as retaliation for a critical op-ed written by Ms. Plame's husband.

"The bottom line is, I see no credible claim by any serious person that that violated the law", he said on CNN. I'm probably biased towards law enforcement.

A conscious effort by Trump to mislead the Federal Bureau of Investigation director could lend weight to the allegation, contained in the private research dossier compiled by a former British spy in 2016, that Trump engaged in compromising activity during the trip that exposed him to Russian government blackmail.

Mueller has already indicted several former Trump officials, including the former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is charged with financial crimes, which he denies.

Dowd had warned Trump that sitting down for an interview would put him in legal jeopardy. But with John Kelly's grip apparently loosening, it is Let-Trump-Be-Trump time and the president decided it was time to call one of his favorite shows.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said Special Counsel Robert Mueller needs to be able to finish his investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. A few Republicans have supported it, but most have opposed it, arguing that it is unconstitutional or unnecessary.
