Trump says he could name Federal Bureau of Investigation head by next week

Spicer said the interview process would start immediately but that Trump had not decided whether Comey's replacement should be political or not. Trump said in excerpts of an NBC News interview released Friday that Comey "should have never exonerated" Hillary Clinton. "And I think as well our institutions are under assault internally".

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said his caucus has not yet made a decision on whether to withhold their votes, but added that the issue is being looked at as a way to ensure there is a thorough investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.

Critics have assailed Mr Trump for abruptly dismissing Mr Comey just as the agency is investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, and possible Moscow ties to the Trump presidential campaign.

Trump took to Twitter on Friday morning to issue a rare warning to Comey, indicating he might have "tapes" of their conversations.

Donald Trump demanded James Comey's loyalty and didn't get it
President Trump at a National Economic Council meeting at the White House in March. "We'll see what happens", he said. Trump said he had asked Comey whether he was under investigation and Comey denied it.

The Post's story, written by four reporters, said it had gathered "the private accounts of more than 30 officials at the White House, the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and on Capitol Hill, as well as Trump confidants and other senior Republicans, [to] paint a conflicting narrative centred on the president's brewing personal animus toward Comey".

"I won't talk about that", Trump told Fox News Channel's Jeanine Pirro in a taped interview set to air Saturday.

If Trump did order a recording system installed in the Oval Office - or elsewhere in the White House - it would be the first of its kind since President Richard Nixon. Trump also told reporters Saturday that all of the candidates under consideration are "outstanding", "very well-known" and at the "highest level". We don't always have the opportunity to get in to see the president, and in those cases, I think we do a pretty good job of following up and getting you that information after the briefing, or in a subsequent - so - so that's - that's - that's exactly what he meant.

"I would note that NY is a one-party consent state and President Trump has always abided by the law", said Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide, referring to the law that permits taping conversations without the knowledge of one of the participants.

Early Players lead for Hughes and McGirt
Scott's shot hopped on a cart path and when he took his free relief, the ball buried in thick grass with trees blocking his view. After birdieing the second hole to get within three shots of the lead, things went bad for the reigning Masters champ.

Durbin said Trump's tweet on Friday "could be construed as threatening a witness in this investigation, which is another violation of federal law". "Unsafe because he may be obstructing justice, in terms of the investigation that really goes to the heart of our democracy -the accountability of the President, and the people around him, to the rule of law - protecting our democracy from an invasion - a cyber-invasion by the Russians", he said.

"There's frankly no need for a special prosecutor", Spicer said Monday at the daily briefing.

Others on the list include white-collar defence lawyer Alice Fisher and NY state judge Michael Garcia, according to the Washington Post. His dismissal of a special prosecutor, Archibald Cox, who subpoenaed the White House for the president's tapes marked the beginning of the end of his presidency.

But Spicer said Monday there was "no collusion with respect to the president himself".

Syrian Kurdish forces say they will push on to IS capital
In addition, five Peshmerga (armed forces of Iraqi Kurdistan) fighters lost their lives as unintended losses ( Rudaw , April 25). Approving a plan of sending arms to Kurdish rebels fighting ISIS, he aggravated the situation in the Middle East even more.

Comey declined and said that he would be "honest" with the president.
