James Comey Literally Tried to Hide Behind a Curtain to Avoid Trump

James Comey Literally Tried to Hide Behind a Curtain to Avoid Trump

Comey told Trump he should not contact him directly about FBI investigations but follow procedure and have the White House counsel ask the Justice Department, which oversees the FBI, the Times reported.

US President Donald Trump adjusts his translation ear piece during a joint press conference with Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos at the White House on May 18, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Trump fired Comey May 9, in part, Trump said later, because the Russian investigation was dragging on. "I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things". "I think the Intelligence committees are the right place to do that", the Speaker said.

At the time, Comey was overseeing the investigation into ties between Trump associates and Russian Federation, and two incidents concerned him, friends said: during a dinner, Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty, and in a meeting at the Oval Office, Trump said he hoped the Russia-linked investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, would be canceled; Trump denies this happened.

Texas Republican Mike Conaway and California Democrat Adam Schiff say they will continue to work with the FBI as the investigation moves forward.

In a pair of Thursday morning tweets, Trump asked why no special counsel was appointed for what he called "all of the illegal acts" of Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Obama administration.

Trump went on to dismiss as "totally ridiculous" the notion that he himself may have committed a prosecutable - or even impeachable - offence in recent months, as argued by some critics who suspect him of obstructing the FBI's probe.

Former Senator Joe Lieberman waves as he leaves after a meeting with President Donald Trump for candidates for Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the White House in Washington, U.S., May 17, 2017.

"He will need an outside team for this", a Republican close to the White House said.

Trump is responding to the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead a probe of allegations that Trump's campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the election. He added that he was thinking of the "Russia thing" when he did so.

He said he respected the special counsel appointment but also said it "hurts our country terribly".
