Trump calls leak of Comey memo 'cowardly'

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is likely to find out.

Michael Gerhardt, a constitutional law professor at University of North Carolina School of Law, called Trump's actions with Comey "unusual and inappropriate".

Trump's initial tweet following Comey's testimony also appeared to refer to the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief as a liar-something that could amount to accusing Comey of perjury given the statements he was making were made while under oath.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador at least twice a year ago and then denied doing so in his confirmation hearings.

Neither the Trump Organization nor the White House immediately responded to ABC News' request for comment about Trump Jr.'s remarks.

Jay Sekulow has been the chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice since 1990, focusing on free speech and religious liberty cases.

Sekulow hosts a daily radio show and a weekly TV program.

So what's next for James Comey? Obstruction is a serious and complicated matter.

A Democratic member of the Intelligence Committee, U.S. Sen. The issue here is that he admits leaking a government document to the press, something for which - as Director of the FBI - he investigated others for doing. Charles Grassley of Iowa.

"It appeared to be that he was trying to cultivate some kind of relationship", Bharara said.

Comey testified last week to the Intelligence committee.

To understand their perspective, consider this happening in the context we normally think of as a national security threat: Imagine that during the 2016 presidential election, a candidate publicly invited the Islamic State to bomb the Democratic Party headquarters.

Republicans are expressing growing concern that President Trump's voluble communication style is becoming a liability that could get him into trouble at a time when controversy swirls around the White House. The next day, Trump boasted to Russian officials in the Oval Office, "I just fired the head of the F.B.I".

India beat Pakistan 7-1 in Hockey World League semi-final
This win has ensured India a quarter-final berth in the tournament though they still have to play against Netherlands on Tuesday. But in 2015, India had beaten The Netherlands 3-2 in the shootout after a 5-5 draw in the Hockey World League Final at Raipur.

A letter demanding the tapes - if they exist - was sent to White House lawyers late on Friday by representatives of the Senate intelligence committee probing the US President's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

Collins went one step further, said she would support issuing a subpeona, though she hoped the president would release the tapes "voluntarily". To many Democrats, Comey appeared to be describing a clear case of obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump. Now Mr Comey is doing the Democrats' work for them.

The founders did not anticipate this, a defect not just of private misconduct (which we've seen before) but of public character.

Reed spoke on "Fox News Sunday". There's no ambiguity in it, there's no, 'Hey, I'm hoping.' You and I are friends: 'Hey, I hope this happens, but you've got to do your job.' That's what he told Comey.

Still, Bharara has said he was puzzled because Trump indicated he would keep him on in November during a meeting at Trump Tower.

Bharara says he found it "very weird and peculiar" to be drawn into private conversations with the president. He crossed the line, the Department of Justice noted before Trump fired Comey, in announcing he would reopen the Clinton investigation before the election.

Bharara says Trump called him twice before the inauguration, to "shoot the breeze".

He said Mr Trump reached out to him again after the inauguration but he refused to call back, shortly before he was sacked. Bharara was asked for his resignation, along with other US attorneys, but he refused and was sacked.

On Sunday, he went on to suggest that Comey's "leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible".

Mr Trump tweeted that the leaks were "cowardly".

But, as Comey made clear in his prepared statement, at the time he left his post he was not aware of evidence to suggest Trump colluded with the Russian government. You know, even if a lot of what Comey said had been reported, it was direct from him.

President Donald Trump has welcomed Romanian President Klaus Iohannis to the White House for talks.

Back in March, Sessions stepped aside from overseeing a federal investigation into contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign after he acknowledged meeting twice past year with the Russian diplomat, Sergey Kislyak.
