McCain Questions Rationality of Calls to Impeach US President

McCain Questions Rationality of Calls to Impeach US President

"The drug epidemic is poisoning too many American lives, and we're going to stop it", Mr. Trump said.

A former spokesman at the Department of Justice said in a new interview former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey might have spent the last several months building a case against President Donald Trump before he was sacked. Trump said he acted because Comey, who had been overseeing the Russian Federation investigation, "wasn't doing a good job" leading the agency, calling him a "showboat" and a "grandstander".

"We'll get rid of the smoke and see where the actual issues lie", said Sen.

Michael Flynn at the White House on February 1.

The FBI's reputation, he said, had been damaged during the presidential campaign, given "what happened with respect to the Clinton campaign".

"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, '" Mr Trump told NBC's Lester Holt. "It feels like everything is up in the air, everything is chaotic, and there's some lack of leadership coming from the White House". On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to preside over the investigation, which will certainly include Flynn. Trump himself had already contradicted that explanation, telling interviewers earlier that he had already made a decision to dismiss Comey. Comey reportedly wrote in a memo about a meeting with Trump that the president said to Comey of the Flynn investigation, "I hope you can let this go".

He offered new justifications for his decision Thursday, even while referring to the Rosenstein memo as "a very, very strong recommendation".

"Look at all the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, who were saying such bad things about Director Comey", he said.

Matthew Miller told The Washington Post it's possible Comey decided not to resign in the opening weeks of Trump's presidency because he wanted to keep the president talking so he could record what was said between the two men in writing after the fact.

Comey was abruptly fired by Trump at a time when he was leading an investigation into whether the latter's election campaign had links with Russian Federation during the U.S. presidential polls a year ago.

"He's always been a person who steps out and does something he believes in", said James Douglas, president of NAACP-Houston who was Green's law professor at Texas Southern University.

"During the House's weeklong recess, Sanford found that the controversy surrounding Trump 'is very much hot and bright, and of great concern with regard to the public I talk to back home, ' even in his conservative district".
