Donald Trump accuses former Federal Bureau of Investigation head James Comey of breaking law

Andrew McCabe Lock him

The existence of the OSC investigation could be seen to bolster the Trump administration's argument that Mr. Comey's behavior during the 2016 election was aberrant.

Much of what is in the memos, most notably Mr Trump's demand that Mr Comey pledge his loyalty, has been known for almost a year.

The memos were provided to Congress earlier Thursday as House Republicans escalated criticism of the Justice Department, threatening to subpoena the documents and questioning officials. DOJ plans to transmit unredacted copies of the memos on Friday.

Comey, whom President Donald Trump fired in May 2017, led the FBI's investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server to conduct official business as secretary of state. Taken together, the 15 pages of detailed notes largely back up the stories that Mr. Comey told in congressional testimony, in the pages of his memoir, "A Higher Loyalty", and during numerous television and radio interviews. Trump defended Flynn in a tweet this morning.

"Apparently, as the president was toasting, he was explaining that she had been the first to call him after his inauguration".

"He told you he'd had a personal conversation with President Putin about hookers?"

Late Friday, Trump took aim at Comey again on Twitter: "James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council?"

"I did not comment at any point during this topic and there was no mention or acknowledgment of any Federal Bureau of Investigation interest in or contact with General Flynn", Comey wrote.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the Justice Department's inspector general is investigating at least two memos alleged to contain classified information that Comey shared with Richman.

The question from Priebus came after former acting Attorney General Sally Yates had warned the White House that Flynn was susceptible to blackmail regarding his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating potential ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign as well as possible obstruction of justice by the president. A spokesperson for Comey did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

He refers to the dossier prepared by an ex-British spy, which alleges Trump cavorted with prostitutes in a Russian hotel room in an effort to defile a bed where former President Barack Obama once slept.

In a joint statement, Reps.

Flynn, who was forced to resign less than a month into Trump's presidency, is also cooperating in the ongoing probe of possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin to influence the 2016 election.

Somehow I had the idea that the tell-quite-a-bit book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", was about our president, Donald J. Trump, and would help me navigate the swamp.

In Comey's words, "I can be stubborn, prideful, overconfident and driven by ego", which, in a unusual juxtaposition, is remarkably like the current president.

Trump critics like David Frum argued that the Comey memos validated Comey's beef with Trump.

Comey recounts an Oval Office conversation from February 2017 in which Trump raises the prospect of jailing journalists who benefit from leaked information.
