Donald Trump considering 11 candidates to replace former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey

In a pair of tweets on Friday morning he said the reason his surrogates are having a hard time is that he is a "very active President with lots of things happening". "He's simply stating a fact".

Jeff Mason, the president of the White House Correspondents' Association, responded to the president's tweets, saying that the White House briefings and press conferences "conducted in full view of our republic's citizens, is clearly in line with the spirit of the First Amendment".

James Comey let that man in that auto know that he needed more money, more resources, to expand the investigation between Russia -Vladimir Putin- and Donald Trump. "Instead, Mr. Comey has recounted to others, he told Mr. Trump that he would always be honest with him, but that he was not "reliable" in the conventional political sense". Mr. Comey couldn't be reached for comment.

When asked whether he could announce a nominee by Friday, when he is scheduled to leave for the Middle East and Europe on his first trip overseas as president, Trump responded, "Even that is possible".

"Under normal circumstances, we would not consider credible any claims that the White House may have taped conversations of meetings with the President", the letter stated.

But it's the court cases and laws stemming from Nixon's secret recordings that could send Trump's tweet backfiring.

".Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???"

Sean Spicer's job is safe, Trump also said.

Thirty-six percent of people said firing Comey made them more confident in the results of the investigation.

"And, in fact, when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said: 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won, '" he said.

President Donald Trump had a busy morning threatening the press and sacked FBI Director James Comey on Twitter. A spokesman for Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said the details on the timing are still being worked out.

The committee is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and any potential connections between Russian Federation, the Trump campaign and some of the campaign's top aides.

Rogers is the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who also worked as an Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent based in Chicago in the 1990s.

Comey will "share his side of the story" at the appropriate place and time, Warner said, adding that he hopes it is before the Intelligence Committee, which he and Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., lead.
