Acting FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe sits with a folder marked"Secret in front of him while testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington

On Saturday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein will interview acting FBI director Andrew McCabe, Texas Senator John Cornyn, former federal prosecutor Michael Garcia and former assistant attorney general Alice Fisher, The New York Times reported, citing a source familiar with the meetings.

"I was going to fire him regardless of recommendations", Trump told NBC in an interview, after days in which the White House has struggled to convince Congress and the American public that the move was not politically motivated.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Tuesday that Mr Rosenstein drafted the memo raising concerns about Mr Comey on his own accord. "The FBI has been in turmoil". "He was asked specifically, 'Is there a recording device in the Oval Office of the President of the United States?' He said, 'I have nothing for you on that'".

It's somewhat ironic that Trump proposed written statements for the sake of accuracy because a statement from the White House Press Office on Tuesday evening supported what Sanders said during the initial briefing.

Here's a talking point: "We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity", Sanders said about the FBI investigation into the Russian hack during the election.

Trump added, "But I mean, I'm OK with it".

He refused to comment on what Comey did or didn't say, but when asked whether it would be common for an FBI director to notify someone they were not the target of an investigation, said "I'm not aware of that being a standard practice".

Armed inmate killed, hostage rescued at hospital
The second nurse was "extremely emotional and upset" following the shooting, but appeared to be physically OK, Gengler said. Officials at the hospital and the sheriff's office did not immediately respond to requests for details.

Trump was asked bu Holt if he was "angry with Mr. Comey because of his Russian Federation investigation".

Trump's nominee must be confirmed in the Senate, where Democrats and some Republicans have fiercely criticized Comey's firing.

Different explanations have been given for Comey's firing, and the stories coming out of the Trump White House have changed each day since it happened.

Leaders of the US intelligence agencies, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA chief Mike Pompeo, testifying on Thursday said they agreed with that finding.

Graham said he was "1,000 percent" sure that Russian Federation had attempted to interfere with the election and he wanted Moscow to be "punished".

An she repeated her assertion, "the only person that can fire Comey was the president".

Trump said the candidates were "outstanding people" and "very well known". Comey, he said, told him he is not.
