In Tweets, Trump Fixates On James Comey, Mentions Syria Strikes And Cohen

I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.

Clinton has previously said she believes Comey's announcement played a part in her losing the presidency. Lynch later denied she had discussed the email scandal with Clinton, who was a leading candidate in the election run, saying she and Bill were talking about grandchildren.

Comey has revealed in an interview to promote his new book that the expectation of Hillary Clinton's victory in the 2016 USA presidential election may have affected the decisions he had made in the email probe, eventually clearing the former secretary of state of all charges.

On Sunday, Trump appeared to respond to Comey's comments, tweeting that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director was a "slimeball" for "making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job".

The FBI reopened the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server on October 28, 2016, after investigators found classified emails sent to top aide Huma Abedin on husband Anthony Weiner's computer. Clinton hasn't hidden her belief that his 11th-hour probe is the reason she lost.

"What he was really doing was protecting his political rear-end with the Republicans because he thought that Hillary Clinton was going to get elected", he said.

Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, told reporters "The situation (in Syria ) is very risky ". Merkel has however ruled out joining any possible strikes against Syria .

Davis was responding to interviews that Comey has given ahead of the release of his book, "A Higher Loyalty". "I have asked myself many times since if I was influenced by that assumption".

Donald Trump launched into another Twitter tirade against James Comey on Sunday, hours before the broadcast of an extended interview with the fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation director about his interactions with the USA president.

President Trump, seen greeting Comey in January 2017, lashed out against the lawman in a series of Sunday morning tweets.

The interview was supposed to be his first televised sit-down interview since he was sacked by the President past year.

In another post, he disputed the memos Comey kept on his encounters with the President - one of which detailed Trump's request for a loyalty pledge.

"He knows all he said to Congress is I will quote 'look at new information.' He never said I will turn over something to you", continued Davis, who worked in the Bill Clinton White House and remains close to the Clintons. Just another of his many lies. Stephanopoulos asked Comey in the interview.
