James Comey Literally Tried to Hide Behind a Curtain to Avoid Trump

"I believe that the professionals at the Justice Department need to do their jobs independently, objectively and thoroughly, and I believe the special counsel helps them do that", Ryan told reporters at his weekly news conference.

But Mr. Trump spotted Mr. Comey and called him out. "In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country".

"The entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign - but I can always speak for myself - and the Russians".

But Mueller and Comey have been longtime allies dating back to at least 2003 when the men both worked in Washington, D.C., Mueller as FBI Director and Comey as Deputy Attorney General.

On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to lead the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

Meanwhile, at home, other investigations into Russian Federation will move forward.

The White House says an investigation will prove there was no collusion.

Premier League Preview: West Ham vs
Midway through the second half, in what was West Ham's first attack, Lanzini scored after some scrappy, goalmouth pinball. West Ham secured their Premier League safety with the victory.

In a series of tweets earlier Thursday morning, Trump called the appointment of a special counsel 'the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!'

The White House Counsel's office represents the presidency, but aides are making the case to Trump that he needs an outside legal team for this probe.

A self-described friend of Comey's wrote in a public blog post on Thursday that Comey had told him that he had rebuffed a Trump request for loyalty by promising only honesty.

Mainly for how quickly the president shut down a reporter's question about previous stories suggesting Trump had asked former FBI Director James Comey to ease, or outright end his investigation of ousted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said after an all-senators briefing from Rosenstein that the deputy attorney general already knew Comey would be fired before he wrote a memo that the Trump administration initially used as justification for ousting the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.

With growing calls from largely Democratic lawmakers that the Trump administration could no longer credibly conduct any investigation into Russian Federation in the midst of Comey's ouster, Mueller was thrust into the picture.
