' I never fired James Comey because of Russia!'

The day before the Clinton records tweet, the FBI Records Vault Twitter account also tweeted records related to Fred Trump, Donald Trump's father.

As a reminder, when he first announced the firing, Trump claimed it was on a recommendation from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein-whom he said in the Holt interview was respected by everyone, but, now that the investigation has progressed, regularly attacks and threatens to fire.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C., has reportedly interviewed former FBI Director James Comey about whether his deputy, Andrew McCabe, committed a crime by lying to federal agents. In this memo, McCabe, who was sacked by Trump in March, described a conversation last May with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about a memo Rosenstein was drafting about Comey's mismanagement of the F.B.I.

Commenting the meeting on Twitter, Mr Pompeo said: "Good working dinner with Kim Yong Chol in NY tonight". Trump said he doesn't know what the letter will say but says he thinks "it'll be very positive".

The president's assertion, in a morning tweet, is at odds with comments he made in a television interview previous year in which he said Comey's stewardship of the Russian Federation probe was on his mind when he made his decision to dismiss him.

The multi-page letter blasted Comey over his investigation of Trump's Democratic presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The Times reported that McCabe had turned in his memo to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Moscow colluded with President Donald Trump's campaign to meddle in the 2016 USA election. He regularly refers to the ongoing special counsel investigation helmed by Robert Mueller as a "witch hunt". Hillary Clinton got that.

Ellie, who was pregnant with 8 puppies, gave birth one-by-one with the puppies' dad, Nugget, also Van Atter's dog, right by her side.

The document has been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election and whether the president sought to obstruct that inquiry through actions that include the dismissal of Comey, who oversaw the probe.

That seems much more likely to be the case, given all the exigent circumstances, but one doesn't even need to go that far to poke a big hole in the Times' presentation of McCabe's argument. "And then he said, 'I'm free of this guys'". "We have briefed him in great detail on the subjects of the investigation and what we're doing, but I'm not gonna answer about anybody in this forum". But Comey has disputed that claim, and has said that he could be a witness against McCabe if the investigation resulted in criminal charges and a trial. Or is the New York Times' scoop from yesterday a bit of old news that just happened to shake loose recently?

"So, you got a group there, a lynching mob, so let them do their job and, boy, we're ready to knock the heck out of you with our report, which will be authoritative", Giuliani said.

Younger voters showed more support for overturning the amendment than older voters, according to RTÉ exit poll projections. The DUP MP Jim Shannon said: "We have a Northern Ireland assembly that has been in limbo for 18 months".

"He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn't a target of the investigation", Giuliani said earlier this month on Fox News "Hannity."
