Trump questions Mueller investigation, Comey memos

Key figures in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election Key figures in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election

A report from the watchdog office released last week concluded that McCabe had misled investigators and his own boss, then-Director James Comey, about his role in an October 2016 Wall Street Journal article on an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in December to lying to federal agents and is providing cooperation to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election and whether the Trump campaign was involved. Trump defended Flynn in a tweet this morning. Comey assured Trump that McCabe is as honest as the day is long-like everyone else at the FBI!-and totally above politics.

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. "I mean, my goodness - I wouldn't want to be in Jim Comey's shoes if the IG is digging into these memos line-by-line trying to see if he might have left something in that shouldn't have gone out the door", Dupree said. Flynn is now cooperating with Mueller's investigators. "Afterwards, he returned only to get his things because they departed for NY by plane that same night".

"He repeated that it was a complete fabrication and "fake news", Comey wrote in one memo.

"The President said "the hookers thing" is nonsense, but that Putin had told him 'we have some of the most attractive hookers in the world, '" according to one memo.

At the time, officials at the FBI knew Comey had memorialized his interactions with the President, but were not aware he shared the contents outside of the bureau until Comey divulged it during his testimony last June, one source explained.

The top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee disagrees, saying the memos prove President Trump interfered in a "blatant effort to deny justice".

"So General Michael Flynn's life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written)", President Trump tweeted early Friday.

The memos show that Comey knew Trump was innocent of collusion "from the very beginning", but he hid that from Congress and the American people, diGenova suggested.

What does Trump think of Comey?

Ms. Hamrick also sent notices to dozens of people who had complained about Mr. Comey, telling them the probe was over.

Bromwich decried Trump's "continuing slander" against McCabe.

Meanwhile, Comey is scheduled to speak at Amazon's corporate headquarters next week to talk about his new book.
