Trump says possible to pick new Federal Bureau of Investigation director by next week

"He's never going to say he did a bad job". It left the team charged with explaining the decision to the American people with just an hour's notice and no real discussion with Mr Trump himself.

Andrew McCabe, who was the FBI's deputy director, has now become its acting head after Donald Trump ousted Mr Comey earlier this week.

The firing of James Comey has come under huge scrutiny as FBI is investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, and possible Moscow ties to the Trump presidential campaign.

Mr Trump denies any such links and says Mr Comey had assured him he was not being investigated. "He can hire and fire whoever he wants", she said.

"That exercise, conducted in full view of our republic's citizens, is clearly in line with the spirit of the First Amendment", Mason said.

Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn, who is the current Senate majority whip and a former Texas attorney general, is also in the running. "Now he seems to be violating that recusal".

Despite Trump himself later contradicting that reasoning, a total 38 percent of Americans bought that original spin from the White House as well, while 46 percent of Americans and 74 percent of Democrats believe Trump fired Comey to hamper the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. On Saturday he attended a performance of the musical "Fun Home" at the National Theater in Washington, D.C., his first public appearance since his termination.

Liberty University said it expects more than 7,000 of its 18,000 graduates to participate in the ceremonies, most of whom earned their degree online.

Warner said separately on ABC that Rosenstein ought appoint a special prosecutor to lead an investigation into the question of whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Bill Cassidy , R-La., was set to appear on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" after saying any GOP bill must pass "the Jimmy Kimmel test". In many states, premiums have been rising and insurance choices dwindling. "I'm already having those discussions", Collins said.

That is the day he leaves for the Middle East and Europe, his first foreign trip since taking office.

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy!" he said.

- James Comey cut an unorthodox path as FBI director, time and again compelled by what he described as strongly held convictions to speak with unusual candor and eloquence about the bureau's work.

Trump "is emulating some of the worst aspects of Richard Nixon and for those of us watching from the outside, we have to ask why", said Naftali. "Highly unethical. At a minimum unethical", Schiff said Sunday on CBS News' "Face the Nation".

But even those who had been critical of Comey expressed suspicion over the timing of Comey's firing.

He warned Mr Comey last week against talking to the media, saying he had "better hope there are no tapes" of their conversations.

Whether any such "tapes" exist-or recordings of any kind-is now the source of heated speculation and intrigue. Thirty two percent of survey respondents said they had no opinion of Trump's decision to fire America's chief law enforcement officer.

"In your letter, you said, 'I accept their recommendation, '" Holt said. White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Friday repeatedly declined to clarify whether such tapes exist.

Donald Trump, frustrated with leaks from his communications team, is now possibly looking to replace them with producers and a host from television station Fox News. "I won't talk about that".
