White House Holds Press Briefing After James Comey Firing

U.S. president Donald Trump has lashed out in a series of tweets amid a firestorm over the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, defending the shifting narrative and timeline his administration has offered for the decision.

If any such tapes exist, the problem is that, because of suspected collusion between WikiLeaks and the Kremlin, the tapes may never be heard - at least not on this side of the Atlantic.

Trump has repeatedly asked his advisers why the investigations - being conducted by the FBI, House, and Senate - would not go away and sometimes screamed at the television while watching stories about them, aides said.

Trump reportedly turned against Comey after the director admitted to the Senate that the FBI is investigating Trump campaign aides and said there is no evidence supporting Trump's claim that President Barack Obama wiretapped him in the run-up to the election. Andrew McCabe, Comey's standing successor, said the bureau would halt any further updates to the White House on the status of the inquiry.

Earlier in her briefing Thursday, Sanders claimed that Comey's firing had not altered the Russian Federation investigation at all.

The White House also issued a timeline claiming how Trump lost confidence in Comey over the course of the last several months.

Philly is now projected to have the No. 4 overall pick, and will also get the Lakers' pick if it falls out of the top three. The Sacramento Kings received a top-three protected pick from the New Orleans Pelicans in the DeMarcus Cousins trade.

"We don't have press conferences", Trump said, according to CNN. So it is through imagination that one must picture the late-night presser and the sheer weirdness of the entire event unfolding.

"I don't think it affects at all in any capacity whatsoever", she told Carlson.

After an early-morning tweetstorm in which he addressed inconsistencies between his statements and those of his surrogates by suggesting the cancellation of "all future press briefings", President Donald Trump reiterated the threat in an interview Friday afternoon. "Sarah Huckabee is a lovely young woman".

"I believe that is very likely that that takes place sometime in the next few days", Sanders said when asked about a potential visit.

"We see time and time again an attempt to parse every little word and make it a game of gotcha as opposed to trying to figure out what the policies are", Spicer said.
