Trump Calls Former FBI Director Comey 'Cowardly' but Twitter Doesn't Buy It

On Wednesday, written testimony by Comey about his alleged interactions with President Donald Trump was released in which the ex-director noted that he asked Sessions "prevent any future direct communication" between Trump and himself after the two shared a private dinner on January 27 and a one-on-one Oval Office meeting on February 14 that Comey found to be "inappropriate".

Questioned by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Former FBI Director James Comey dropped a hint about some kind of information with regards to Attorney General Sessions and the Russian Federation investigation, which Comey was convinced would lead to Sessions recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe.

That's because in his confirmation hearing he said one thing in front of the American people - that he hadn't had meetings with the Russian ambassador during the campaign - and the facts showed that he did. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chair and ranking Democrat, jointly announced that Sessions would testify Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET "in open session". Several media outlets have reported that Mr. Comey told the Intelligence Committee last week that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was examining whether Sessions met with Kislyak at a Washington hotel a year ago.

Nearly a month after suggesting that he recorded conversations with Comey in the White House, writing in an early-morning Twitter message that "Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations", the president has yet to definitely answer the question of whether any such tapes even exist.

He'll most likely be asked about his involvement in the Russia investigation and his undisclosed contacts with the Russian ambassador. The committee shortly after said the hearing would be open.

"Executive privilege nearly certainly does not cover the Comey memo", wrote Vladeck, "and even if it did, disclosing it without authorization isn't illegal". As former US Attorney Preet Bharaa told George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" this past Sunday, "No one knows whether there is a provable case of obstruction of justice".

What was Comey referring to last week about Sessions?

A Trump confidant, Chris Ruddy, told "PBS NewsHour" on Monday that the president was weighing whether to fire the special counsel now heading up the investigation, former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director also testified that he and the agency had believed Sessions was "inevitably going to recuse" for reasons he said he could not elaborate on.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Monday said Mr.

Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8 about a series of private meetings and conversations he had had with Trump leading up to Trump's surprise firing of him on May 9.

Lawmakers, including Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have asked the FBI to investigate and to determine if Sessions committed perjury when he denied having had meetings with Russians.
