Source says Comey told boss about Trump worries

Trump reportedly began complaining about the FBI investigation, which Comey had confirmed was happening two days earlier in a Congressional hearing, as well as Comey's handling of it.

He replied: "I wish him luck".

Former FBI director James Comey is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

His appearance will mark Comey's first public comments since he was abruptly fired by the president last month.

Abbas said the Palestinians "are committed to working with [Trump] to reach a historic peace deal between us and Israel". Trump is due to meet Pope Francis on Wednesday, becoming the 13th president to visit the Vatican.

"In order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey's scheduled testimony", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.

Daniel Coats, Director of National Intelligence, told associates in March that Donald Trump asked him to intervene with then-FBI Director James Comey and get him to have the bureau back off of its investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his ties to Russian Federation.

Comey confirmed in March that the FBI was investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and any possible coordination with those in the Trump campaign.

Comey's communications with the attorney general raises new questions about Sessions' role last month in recommending the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director be dismissed in the midst of the Russian Federation inquiry.

But police say they were actually bounty hunters who had a tip that a Minnesota fugitive would be at the dealership that day. When Hutchinson arrived at the dealership, a scuffle started as Bernal and Garcia tried to apprehend him, KTVT reports.

Jared Kushner, a top White House aide and Trump's son-in-law, also attended the meeting. On Tuesday, just hours after White House spokesman Sean Spicer would not say whether Trump had confidence in his attorney general, the Justice Department also was confronted with reports that Sessions had at one point offered his resignation. However, that effort has largely stalled, both because of a lack of decision-making in the West Wing and concerns among some potential recruits about joining a White House under the cloud of investigation.

"I hope you can let this go", Trump supposedly said during a meeting days after the Flynn firing, according to the memo first reported by the NY Times.

The ad reflects Trump's attempts to convince Americans that Comey is not credible. Hale said in a statement: "Director Coats does not discuss his private conversations with the President".
