Sanders: Comey directly relayed info to Trump on Russian Federation investigation

The White House USA

President Donald Trump has grown increasingly enraged by the FBI's investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian officials, helping spur him to fire FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday evening, several White House aides told Politico.

"On Monday, the President met with the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General and they discussed reasons for removing the Director", the White House said.

Rather than talk with Comey - "man to man", as President Trump would probably characterize it - the Federal Bureau of Investigation received an email notification, and Trump sent his longtime bodyguard over to their headquarters with the official paperwork.

Besides offering a hefty reward, the WikiLeaks tweet also encourages supporters to up the ante by making contributions via bitcoin to a posted address.

He was back Friday and joked that he heard he had been missed by the press.

Spicer had been drawn outside in the first place for television damage control - Comey's forced departure from the Federal Bureau of Investigation was reportedly more controversial than the White House had anticipated. "No, he just gets beat up by these people and again you know they don't show the 90 questions that they asked and answered properly".

"I believe that is very likely that that takes place sometime in the next few days", Sanders said when asked about a potential visit.

"And that's not Sean's fault, that's the fault of the president of the United States, who needs to empower his press secretary and his spokespeople to understand what he's thinking and be able to accurately relate it to the world".

Earlier, Spirro asked if Trump was "moving so quickly that your communications department can not keep up with you".

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy!", Trump wrote in a flurry of early-morning tweets. Sanders said she thought Rosenstein, the No. 2 official at the Justice Department, was "a flawless example of what you would be looking for in terms of an independent person to come in and helm this investigation". "Unless I have them every two weeks and I do it myself".

"We don't have press conferences", Trump said, according to CNN.

"I think it's a good idea", he continued.
