Trump claims Comey memos show no obstruction

Trump claims Comey memos show no obstruction

A spokesperson for the inspector general's office declined to comment.

Bromwich said he pledged cooperation with prosecutors, whom he said were in "listening mode". I suspect there are millions of Americans who would agree.

US President Donald Trump suggested Friday that former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Jame Comey's decision to leak classified data illegally in order to prompt a special counsel probe into Russian Federation meant that the appointment was made "based on an illegal act".

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.

McCabe has denied misleading anyone.


Accounting for the $2 million book payment plus returns on his investments, it's probably safe to say that Comey is worth about $14 million now. He said that when he thought his answers during the course of the investigation, he went back and tried to correct them.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) is now investigating Comey's leaks of classified information, as well as his controversial handling of the Clinton email investigation in which he took the unorthodox step to announce that that he recommended no criminal prosecution despite having initially found her guilty of gross negligence in handling classified material, a criminal offense; normally the FBI investigates, while the determination of whether to prosecute is a decision reserved to the DOJ. In response, the president-elect had only one question, Comey writes: "But you found there was no impact on the result, right?" Trump "replied by saying it may involve putting reporters in jail". "But I took from whatever communication we had that he wasn't involved in it".

"I don't think that there's any doubt that these 15 pages of James Comey's notes constitute a suicide note, a lengthy suicide note", Joe diGenova, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia said on Fox News' "Hannity" on Friday. "I've read the report".

Mukasey concurred, saying, "Regrettably I think the damage is enormous because the head of the organization becomes the figurehead that everybody looks to judge how the organization performs". I'm not the discipline decision-maker in the case.

But returning now in his new book, A Higher Loyalty, to his handful of meetings with Trump, he deftly, sometimes comically, captures the president as the inattentive, emotionally stunted, self-focused, absent-from-any-civic-sense, absurd fellow nearly anyone who has had contact with him knows him to be. "Getting a little (lot) of their own medicine?"
