Comey defends releasing Trump memos

In a rollicking exchange, Trump complimented Kanye West on his "great taste", and praised CNN's Anderson Cooper for his town-hall questioning of "Leakin' Liar" James Comey.

"Michael would represent me and represent me on some things".

"I gave the memos to my legal team after I gave them to Dan Richman - after I asked him to get it out to the media", he said. From what he has seen, the president said, Cohen did "absolutely nothing wrong".

"Because he's got other things".

"First of all, [Trump is] innocent".

The newest member of President Trump's legal team, Rudy Giuliani, met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday in Washington, reopening stalled negotiations for an interview with Trump, three people with knowledge of the matter told The Washington Post.

"He's now just admitted, and he tripped himself up", Avenatti said. "It's a hugely damaging admission by the president".

While campaign finance groups have questioned whether the money came from election funds, Trump said they did not.

According to Comey, Trump disputed this point, arguing that he wasn't even in his hotel long enough to have engaged in the lewd conduct he has denied participating in.

Trump told Fox & Friends that he went to Russian Federation for a "day or two" and that he did not leave immediately as Comey's memo claimed. I stayed there a very short period of time but, of course, I stayed, ' Trump said.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is poised to vote Thursday on a bill to protect Mueller's job.

"It's your Justice Department!" co-host Steve Doocy exclaimed. "You're the Republican in charge". "And, by the way, I made them a fortune with The Apprentice", the President of the United States complained of his coverage on NBC.

"I have decided that I won't be involved".

Complaining about being a victim of a "witch hunt", the U.S. president further threatened to seize control of the Justice Department (which has always worked independently from the president), a remark that apparently left the show hosts deeply shocked.

"The president is bunkered down... nearly in hiding, avoiding the media", CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter said Thursday morning.

Among the most salacious details was a report that Trump consorted with prostitutes overnight on that trip, a claim Trump has denied. But Trump on Thursday appeared to open the door to taking some action that could undermine the special counsel's investigation.
