Donald Trump declares 'total vindication' in tweet on James Comey

Feinstein calls for investigation of'all matters related to obstruction of justice

Trump said, "Well, I'll tell you something about that maybe sometime in the very near future".

Trump continued to be coy about the possibility of there being recordings of his conversations with Comey, which he has suggested previously. Comey told senators he believed Trump fired him because of the Russian Federation investigation.

A senior White House official later had said the United States does, in fact, support Article 5 simply by agreeing to the terms of the charter.

Pelosi is citing Trump's habit of early morning tweeting, as well as Thursday's congressional testimony by former FBI Director James Comey.

Despite the president's claim Comey told many lies, a statement from his personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz only names two specific instances in which he says Comey's testimony is false. The situation has Republican lawmakers pinned against a wall.

But Mr. Trump insisted during a press conference with Romania's President Klaus Werner Iohannis that Mr. Comey lied in some parts of the testimony he gave to the Senate intelligence committee and asserted that nothing in his testimony showed collusion with Russian Federation or obstruction of justice. Republicans and Democrats alike lauded him for his public service, patriotism, and honesty.

But few if any have as public a profile as Comey or have generated such intense feelings.

Still, both parties involved say the other is lying. But while many Capitol-watchers, politics nerds, and otherwise concerned citizens were glued to the hearing yesterday, Arena says he thinks that hearing was just the beginning of a larger story.

There are numerous questions remaining, chief among them, what former national security adviser Mike Flynn knows and why Trump went to such lengths to protect the national security adviser he had fired. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) told Independent Journal Review afterward. 'I was supposed to take her out to dinner that night'.

Trump has the impulses of a dictator and he has zero respect for the norms of our democracy, which is all the more troubling since the Republican Party has circled their wagons around Donald Trump and make up the only barrier to Trump from being removed from office. Still, he maintained he had never asked Comey for a pledge of allegiance. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) laughed it off. So if he was lying, he was committing perjury. "That didn't bother me one bit". Trump asked though he went on to say such a request wouldn't have been inappropriate. "Everything he has told me has come to a fruition and has been truthful". Comey, before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, previewed some of the most important themes likely to surface in this probe.

"The president said, 'I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.' I didn't move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed", Comey said.

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. Blunt denied the two accounts differ. Comey said he felt he needed to pay attention and was too stunned to react to the "hope" comment.

Comey delivered scathing testimony a day earlier in a highly anticipated Senate hearing, saying Trump sought to derail a probe into onetime national security advisor Michael Flynn - at best, a political miscalculation, and at worst a criminal obstruction of justice. "I was so stunned by the conversation, I just took it in". "Do you have a question?"

In real life, we rely on our instincts, experience, interpretation of facial expressions and body language, and historical knowledge to make judgments and instruct our words and actions.

He'd urge young audiences to imagine asking themselves on their death beds who they would want to have been, saying he hoped everyone's answer would be that they tried to help others.
