Trump accuses ex-FBI director Comey of cowardice over 'leaks'

The timeline of Sessions' confessions on his first two interactions with Kislyak doesn't add up either: On Jan. 10, Sessions first testified that he "did not have communications with the Russians;" on February 13, Michael Flynn resigned over his contact with the Russian ambassador; on February 14, Comey's Oval Office meeting with Trump took place.

The Washington Post reported that Trump asked Dan Coats, his top intelligence official, to push the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe away from Michael Flynn.

Even though Comey testified that he didn't ultimately tell Sessions about Trump's request that he lay off the Flynn investigation, Comey did ask Sessions to "prevent any future direct communication" between him and Trump, noting that his one-on-one with Trump had been "inappropriate".

During a discussion of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Comey disclosed that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, an Obama administration appointee, instructed him to refer to the issue as a "matter", not an "investigation". Earlier Friday, he retweeted a post from Alan Dershowitz, a prominent lawyer and Harvard professor, who said there was "no plausible case" for obstruction of justice and that "we must distinguish crimes from" political "sins". "You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry".

"What we're talking about is a sitting president of the United States and whether the administration took an action to fire the FBI director in a historic way because of a desire to take the pressure off the Russian Federation investigation", he told CNN.

In his public testimony, Comey did not disclose any links between Trump advisers and alleged Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 US presidential election, an issue that has distracted from White House policy goals such as overhauling the USA healthcare system and cutting taxes. And frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said. "I was sacked in some way to change, or the endeavor was to change, the way the Russian Federation investigation was being conducted".

Life Is Strange: Before The Storm Announced
Not unlike the games from studio Telltale Games, Life Is Strange features a branching narrative formed by player's conversations. The original Life is odd was a graphic episodic adventure game developed by Square Enix , and was critically acclaimed.

The disclosures that followed Comey's firing have raised questions about why Comey, known in government for an independent streak and a willingness to buck protocol, did not speak out publicly while on the job, or at least make his objections directly known to the president.

But Sessions' behavior in relation to interactions between Comey and Trump was also odd, according to Comey's descriptions. Dianne Feinstein of California asked, "Why didn't you stop and say, 'Mr".

Comey's testimony provided several bruising moments for Trump.

"That concerned me because that language tracked how the campaign was talking about the FBI's work and that's concerning", he said.

"There should be no fuzz on this".

"There should be no fuzz on this whatsoever, the Russians interfered in our election", Comey said. "That happened. It's about as un-fake as you can possibly get".
