Trump to tout apprenticeships as way to fill jobs gap

As fired FBI Director James Comey prepared to testify last week before Congress following a steady stream of allegations about the President's conduct, the White House tried to put its focus elsewhere: infrastructure week.

"If there are tapes, it is probably not very hard for the Justice Department to get them", Rotunda, a Chapman University law professor, told CNN. The newspaper noted that it doesn't exclude the possibility of recordings created by another entity.

The hearing will bring sharp questioning for Sessions and likely some uncomfortable moments from the Trump administration. It seems highly unlikely that he began constructing a fake chain of events to ensnarl the president long before Trump fired him.

Spicer told reporters Monday that it "depends on the scope of the questions" and said it was "premature" to say.

That means the presidency and the public will be subjected to even more of what we've seen so far - and it might just get worse.

After failing to convince Comey to let Flynn off the hook, to say publicly that Trump wasn't under investigation and to expedite his investigation, the president fired him.

He also branded the president a liar and said Trump urged him to abandon the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Sessions late Saturday cancelled planned appearances at a pair of appropriations panels on Tuesday, and instead said he would appear before the intelligence committee. After his top two Justice Department officials resigned rather than carry out Nixon's order to oust the special prosecutor, Solicitor General Robert Bork, who became acting attorney general, did fire Cox in October 1973 in what is referred to as the "Saturday Night Massacre".

Since then, lawmakers have raised questions about a possible third meeting at a Washington hotel, though the Justice Department has said that did not happen.

Sessions faces questions about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the USA during the presidential campaign.

Conway stressed that Democratic Sen.

As Trump once claimed, Comey reassured him repeatedly that he, himself, was not under investigation at the time. That investigation continues, as do congressional inquiries.

Trump's assertion came after he branded Comey as a "leaker" and claimed "total and complete vindication" after ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director's testimony before a Senate Committee.

"I plan on welding for a good part of my life, until retirement", she said. "Very 'cowardly!'" It was not clear exactly what Trump meant by "prevalent" - a point made in a flurry of Twitter postings by critics of the president.

It would the second consecutive week in which the White House will make a push to show Trump is moving ahead on his top domestic priority - jobs - in spite of investigations into whether he had anything to do with possible Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

The president toured a classroom full of tool-and-die machines that simulated a factory floor, accompanied by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, as his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, faced questions before the Senate Intelligence Committee on potential Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation and the firing of FBI Director James Comey. It's part of an escalating investigation into charges that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 elections. And Trump wanted the public to know that, which isn't an unreasonable desire given that the Russian Federation storyline has cast a pall over the administration.

Comey also revealed that he had authorized his friends to leak memos he had written about conversations with Trump to the media “to prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”.
