Trump kept pushing Comey for information on Russian Federation investigation, kept wanting loyalty

Then FBI director, Mr Comey was leading the probe into alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, and claims of Russian meddling in the election. A Washington Post report, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter, said a senior Trump adviser is now considered a "person of interest" in the law enforcement investigation into whether Trump's campaign associates coordinated with Russian Federation in an effort to sway the 2016 election. It is expected to include scrutiny of Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn, as well as his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and two former advisors, Carter Page and Roger Stone, and their contacts with Russian officials. "It's special. All over the world wherever you go, the FBI is special", he said, before adding: "The FBI has not had that special reputation with what happened in the campaign, what happened with the Clinton campaign, and even you could say, directly and indirectly with respect to the much more successful Trump campaign". The White House has said the firing was unrelated to the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

This was only one of many interactions with Trump that reports now indicate made Comey uncomfortable. Trump is reported to have called Comey to ask when the FBI would state that Trump wasn't personally under investigation, prompting Comey to ask Trump to not speak directly with him on the subject but send his inquiry through the proper channels.

"I just fired the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was insane, a real nut job", the Times reported that Trump said during the May 10 meeting.

"By grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia's actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia", Spicer said.

When asked whether he had urged Comey to shut down the Flynn investigation, Trump quickly replied: "No. No. Russian Federation is fine", the president said.

Donald Trump called James Comey within weeks of his inauguration and asked when federal authorities would announce the President was not personally under investigation over links to Russian Federation, it has been claimed.

However, Mueller's appointment saw a rare consensus between Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill, who applauded the pick. However, at a combative news conference Thursday, he fell short in trying to resolve questions about investigations into his campaign and his first four months in office.
