  • News Alert: Trump speaks on Comey firing

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Thu May 11 10:25:34 2017
    President Donald Trump said Thursday that he had already decided to fire FBI Director James Comey[1] before Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote up a formal recommendation to do so.

    "I was going to fire Comey," Trump told NBC News' Lester Holt in an interview. "Regardless of the recommendation, I was going to fire Comey."

    The White House initially said Rosenstein's memorandum to Attorney General Jeff Sessions prompted Trump to fire Comey, but Trump contradicted that account, saying he had already planned to do so and requested a memo to back up his decision.
