Trump says 'fast decision' possible on new Federal Bureau of Investigation director

FBI Attorney General John Cornyn Texas

New York University's Timothy Naftali says that since then, presidents have learned not to tape Oval Office conversations.

In the tweet, Trump also warned Comey about leaking to the press: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" He also sent out a tweet in which he appeared to threaten Comey by releasing recordings of their conversations.

Meanwhile, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, Dick Durbin of IL, said Friday that Trump was "dangerous" and that "his credibility has been destroyed". "That's not a threat. The tweet speaks for itself", Spicer said.

Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday and later said Comey was a "showboat" and "grandstander" who was not doing a good job.

Disputing the basis of the Russian Federation investigation, Spicer said, "There's no collusion that occurred".

Second, the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation was picking up steam. Comey declined, instead offering "honest".

Speaking at the Common Good forum in New York City, Gillibrand argued that Trump has "tried to undermine the basic institutions of our democracy", by firing former FBI Director James Comey earlier this week, saying Trump was further politicizing the department.

Friday marked Spicer's first appearance at the podium since the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!"

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017.Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???

Trump told Fox News he did not ask Comey to pledge loyalty and only wants him to be honest.

Pressed by Pirro on whether he asked Comey for his loyalty, Trump responded: "No, I didn't, but I don't think it would be a bad question to ask". But regardless of whether the timing represents coincidence or intentional obstruction, my gravest concern is the profound chilling effect that the firing may have on the FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "I thought that this would be a very popular thing, that I did, when I terminated Comey, because all of the Democrats couldn't stand him", Trump said. "It's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won".

Since firing Comey, Trump has raged at Democrats and other critics who have blasted him for firing the man who was spearheading an investigation centered around him.

Spicer called the coverage of changing stories behind Comey's dismissal miss the point. They can make recommendations, but the president will ultimately make the hiring decision.

Trump is considering 11 people to replace Comey, a White House official said.

A Comey associate has disputed that account.
