The Russia Investigations: What Comes Next?

The Russia Investigations: What Comes Next?

President Donald Trump, after accusing former FBI Director James Comey of committing perjury during his testimony before Congress, has stated that he would be willing to give his own rebuttal testimony under oath.

President Donald Trump's counsel has just two weeks to hand over, if they exist at all, recorded "tapes" of conversations Trump had with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to the House panel probing alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Asked by a reporter if he had told Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Flynn, Trump said, "I didn't say that". "Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'"

Comey said he believed Trump fired him because of the Russian Federation investigation, and Trump himself cited "this Russian Federation thing" as a motivating factor for his decision to sack Comey during an interview with broadcaster NBC that aired last month.

Trump also said that Comey's testimony "vindicated" the president and that everything in it was "basically ridiculous". Flynn was forced out after the Washington Post reported that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about Flynn's flurry of contacts during the presidential transition with Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

Dr Altschuler said: "Certainly, some Republicans will be feeling dismayed, because they don't know what shoe is about to drop".

Kasowitz also maintained that the testimony made clear that Trump "never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone".

After the first question about the Comey-Russia matter during a joint press conference with his Romanian counterpart, Klaus Iohannis Trump pivoted away.

The president had previewed his attacks against Comey in an early-morning tweet that broke his previous day's silence on his favorite social media megaphone.

Trump also seized on Comey's revelation that he had directed a friend to release memos he'd written documenting his conversations with the president to a reporter.

"I didn't say that", said Trump referring to the Comey testimony, indicating that Trump asked that the investigation go away.

Trump said Comey's testimony also cleared him from allegations that he colluded with Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Sessions recused himself from any investigations into Russian Federation and it was later reported that Trump "fumed" over the choice. The House intelligence committee is seeking any tapes of the conversations.

After the election but before the inauguration, Trump asked Bharara to stay on as USA attorney in Manhattan when they met at Trump Tower. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the committee, both said Thursday they believed Comey's account of the events.
