Trump pledges to move quickly to name new Federal Bureau of Investigation director

The Office of Government Ethics tweeted on Friday a reference to "loyalty to the Constitution" following reports that President Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey for his loyalty.

It also escalated a potentially damaging standoff between a fuming, undisciplined president and the unorthodox lawman he dismissed three days earlier. "Doing away with the briefings would reduce accountability, transparency and the opportunity for Americans to see that, in the US system, no political figure is above being questioned".

Those people also describe him as deeply frustrated by what he views as unfair media coverage - irritation that emerged in a separate tweet in which he suggested he may shut down the regular press briefings at the White House. "I won't talk about that", Trump said.

Most notably, in response to Trump's threatening "tapes" tweet, someone close to Comey responded by saying he "hopes" there are tapes.

Trump's bareknuckle comments immediately fueled fresh comparisons between his administration and that of disgraced president Richard Nixon, who famously recorded his conversations - a fact that sped his downfall during the Watergate scandal. Details of the dinner were first reported by The New York Times.

Trump was widely known to record some phone conversations at his office in Trump Tower during his business career, sometimes remarking to aides after a call as to whether or not he had taped it.

Warner: Trump firing Comey has 'appearance' of quashing FBI's Russian Federation probe
Schumer tells CNN's " State of the Union " that "the key here, of course, is getting some of our Republican colleagues to join us. The first candidate to arrive for interviews was Alice Fisher, a high-ranking Justice Department official in the George W.

Trump then defended both deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as "a lovely young woman", who had substituted for Spicer during the briefings on Wednesday and Thursday, when he was serving duty with the Navy Reserve, and calling Spicer "a wonderful human being" and "a nice man".

Once the bombshell news of Comey's firing broke late Tuesday, the White House was at pains to explain it - and its series of contradictory statements were quickly ridiculed.

The face-to-face meeting between the president and the director raised other concerns.

Trump told reporters he might even be able to make his decision on who should succeed James Comey to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation before he leaves on his first foreign trip on Friday.

Spicer said Trump's "robust schedule" means that "sometimes we don't get an opportunity to get in to see him and get his full thinking".

However, Ward said Flake was using the timing excuse as a way to attack the president.

I happen to have lawyers, unrelated lawyers and they would say, 'Wow, she's guilty here, guilty.

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

The White House initially said Trump was compelled to fire Comey by a critical memo from the deputy attorney general on the director's handling of last year's investigation into Hillary Clinton's email.

"He's doing a good job, but he gets beat up", Trump said.

"But as a matter of practice, I doubt either did it and that it's just another bluff from Trump", he continued. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate leader and a former state attorney general.
