Travel Records Belie What Trump Told Comey About Russia Trip

Slate corrected a theoretical story regarding James Comey’s memos after being called out on Twitter

"Some of those memos I decided should be classified".

He concludes the memo with a self-serving "he [the President] clearly noticed I had directly criticized him" when he responded to a comment by Trump to the effect that expressing respect for Putin, as head of a major country, was appropriate.

"The challenge I found was that they wash over you like a wave and even if you disagree, the waves keep coming".

In an interview with ABC News, Comey repeated the story and added, "It's very hard to prove something didn't happen".

"Coming here and learning about how Comey's actions affected the election, how his interactions with President Trump influenced the electorate, all the different interactions is fascinating to me", said sophomore Carter Trousdale.

Asked what kinds of issues the team helps him with, Comey said: "All the things you might need to talk to counsel about once you're fired".

Comey also confirmed to CNN that he had shared the memos with additional close associates, outside of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and with his legal team after he was sacked.

Congressmen who were already aware of Richman's SGE status via closed-door hearings said it allowed him to "come and go in the FBI".

Amazon Raising Prime Annual Price to $119
The company said earlier this month that it has 100 million Prime members , the first time it has released the number. In the previous quarter, which included the busy holiday shopping season, it had a profit of more than $1.8 billion.

Comey said he shared an unclassified memo documenting a conversation with the president to a friend and asked that friend to relay the substance of the memo to The New York Times.

"His only reference point is internal - "what will bring me what I need, what will fill this hole in me - get me the affirmation I crave" - that is deeply concerning", Comey told CNN's Anderson Cooper at the College of William & Mary in Virginia.

At the Tuesday reception hosted by his literary agency Javelin, Comey said it was his "first book party ever".

Trump, who has showed a knack for helping publications he despises, tweeted that Comey was an 'untruthful slime ball'.

"McCabe tried to steer people off the private email investigation and that appears to be obstruction and should be investigated", a former FBI official with knowledge of the investigation told Carter.

In his April 19 letter ("Comey shows true self with potshots in new book"), Michael DiStefano states that former FBI Director James Comey's book is full of presidential potshots.

"As I say in the book, that's a fool's bargain".
