But that claim would be undercut by the fact that the president has publicly discussed and tweeted about his conversations with Comey, said Rozell. Democratic Representative Jackie Speier said it appeared that Nunes was "more concerned with pushing the White House narrative than seeking the truth". Consulte Mais Informação

Trump accuses ex-FBI chief James Comey of lying

These additional requirements shouldn't pose a problem in this case, because Trump knows (or certainly should!) whether the statements are true or false. In an investigation where Comey not only serves as the president's main antagonist but in which the FBI figures to factor in to the findings, why would Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appoint the former director of the FBI to investigate a matter so heavily pertaining to the credibility of the organization Mueller once led? "First of ... Consulte Mais Informação

I would speak under oath on Comey

Comey raises a legitimate point when he asks: Why did the president have everyone leave the Oval Office before he brought up the Flynn investigation and said he hoped Comey could let it go? But Trump's denunciations of Comey have only fueled demands that the president - who has denied asking for loyalty or asking for the investigation to be shelved - give his account under oath.

French Open champion Rafael Nadal

Defeat by Austria's Dominic Thiem in Rome was a minor blip as Nadal went on to enjoy total domination at Roland Garros, emulating his 2008 and 2010 titles when he did not drop a set. It was the beginning of the end for Wawrinka , who would have felt he needed to take the first set to be a chance. This title, a record 10th at a single grand slam in the professional era, was arguably the most impressive of his 15 majors, though, as it arrived three injury-plagued years after the last one ...
