Comey memos: Trump fixated on lewd accusations



Trump himself later dismissed Giuliani's revelation as "sarcastic".

Mr Comey has painted Mr Trump as "morally unfit" to be United States president, and suggested he may have obstructed justice by trying to pressure him into dropping any investigation into Mr Flynn. "Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work?" Senator Warner was impressed: "I think that is very significant". During an interview Friday on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle", Mukasey said Obama wanted Comey to let Clinton "off" the hook because Obama believed, "if you wind up accusing her, you wind up accusing me".

Mr Trump "said he was trying to run the country and the cloud of this Russian Federation business was making that hard", Mr Comey wrote in a memo on a conversation they had on 30 March 2017. Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act? He said the president then pointed his fingers at his head and said of Flynn - "the guy has serious judgment issues". Comey said he did not comment at the time.

How did Giuliani - the former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor who served as one of Trump's most prominent campaign surrogates - know that Comey was about to drop the announcement that may have ensured Trump's election?

Comey recounts an Oval Office conversation from February 2017 in which Trump raises the prospect of jailing journalists who benefit from leaked information. Trump then said that reporters should be jailed over the leaks.

Comey wrote the memos in the immediate wake of private discussions with Trump, a step he said he took because he was troubled by the conversations, feared that the president might one day lie about them and that it could be evidence of a crime. Mr Trump strongly denies Mr Comey's account.

Former FBI Director James Comey, who has made the rounds of television talk shows to promote his new book, will be in Portland Saturday.

Attorney Michael Bromwich on Friday addressed an inspector general investigation that led to McCabe's firing last month on allegations that he had misled officials about a news media disclosure.

The disagreement involves conflicting recollections about a conversation the two men had after an October 2016 Wall Street Journal story about an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The memos showed that Comey never wrote "that he felt obstructed or threatened, " said Rep.

According to what Comey told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow in an interview Thursday, Giuliani's unusual powers of prediction made him so suspicious that he ordered the FBI to investigate whether any of its agents were leaking information to the ex-mayor who had since gone into the private security business.

The inspector general's office has referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney's office for consideration of an investigation.
