Majority of Americans Feel Trump Is Trying to Interfere With Russia Probe

Comey is expected to testify before Congress Thursday, he will be questioned about his communication with Trump while was FBI Director, including reports that the President reportedly asked him to stop investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Officials did not, however, reveal what had unnerved him about his Oval Office meeting with Mr Trump.

Comey also writes about having dinner with Trump, during which the president said "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty".

In the new operating system, users will be able to take Portrait Mode images with optical image stabilization, in flash or HDR. Swiping down, the lock screen draws the important notifications, while swiping in other directions fetches various widgets.

The new revelation about Comey's uneasiness with Trump brings to mind a posting last month by Comey friend Benjamin Wittes on his Lawfare blog, in which he said Comey "saw it as an ongoing task on his part to protect the rest of the Bureau from improper contacts and interferences from a group of people he did not regard as honourable".

Comey said he told then-president-elect Trump on January 6 in a briefing in Trump Tower that Trump himself was not being investigated. "During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President-Elect Trump's reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance".

Some of Trump's closest political aides, especially those who were with him on the campaign trail, have a deep sense that justice is on their side and that it will eventually become clear that they did nothing wrong, two White House officials said. Days before he was sacked, Comey told lawmakers he was "mildly nauseous" about the idea his actions in the Clinton email probe may have swayed the 2016 presidential election. "Most of Washington, of course numerous Democrats, detested this man until Donald Trump fired him, which Jim Comey said in his own goodbye letter was the right of the president to do", Conway said.

Conference of Mayors and the acting U.S. ambassador in London, Lewis Lukens, to offer their support for Khan. News and World Report's Jamie Stiehm attributes the tweet to Trump's "glaring hostility" towards Muslims.

Only 36% of those surveyed said they have a great deal or good amount of trust in what Comey says about the Russian Federation probe, compared to 55% who said they only had some or none at all. But then the president told an interviewer he got rid of Comey because of "this Russian Federation thing". He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn't happen. "I replied only that 'he is a good guy'". This year, he chronicled his conversations with Trump in a series of contemporaneous memos.

It will be Comey's first public testimony since his shock firing in May. Since then, Trump and Comey allies have traded competing narratives about their interactions. The president frequently calls the story "fake news" and "made up".

The nation's intelligence chiefs, facing questions from Congress one day before former FBI Director James Comey provides his first public account of the events leading up to his firing, declined to describe conversations with President Donald Trump but said they had not been directed to do anything they considered illegal or felt pressured to do so.

White House officials had weighed trying to block Comey from testifying on Thursday by arguing that his discussions with the president pertained to national security and that there was an expectation of privacy.
