Trump Claims 'Picture File' Shows Comey And Mueller Are Best Buds

Trump lashes out at Comey after CNN town hall calling him 'a disgrace to the FBI'

Three Republican senators are pressing the State Department to provide information about a meeting between dossier author Christopher Steele and a State Department official before the 2016 election.

Comey also took a swipe at McCabe, who was sacked from the FBI on March 16, 2018 after the Justice Department's inspector general found that he lacked candor regarding the authorization of media contacts in October 2016 regarding an investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

The document was able to be released due to the Freedom of Information Act.

Steele met on October 11, 2016 with Kathleen Kavalec.

The Steele dossier contributed, in part, to the FBI's decision in July 2016 - after Russia hacked into and then released documents stolen from the Democratic National Committee - to open a counterintelligence probe into any possible Trump-Russia connections.

"They were supposedly best friends", Trump said.

Archie is a wonderful choice as it encapsulates pomp and tradition while having all the cheeky chappie qualities of Harry himself. Family members have welcomed the new arrival, with Prince William saying on Tuesday he was "absolutely thrilled".

In a letter sent Friday to Pompeo, Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sought communications between Steele and State Department employees, as well as between State employees and the Justice Department regarding Steele.

The two chairs have also recently "raised questions about any Federal Bureau of Investigation awareness of leaks to the media and possible efforts to use briefings with the Trump transition team as covert intelligence gathering operations".

"The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice", he added. Much of the information in Steele's dossier was initially unverified.

Former FBI chief James Comey says there are many incidents that prove criminal intent on the president's behalf, while Trump continues his attacks on both the author of the report and Comey. State did a quick verification and threw Steele out.

As expected, Trump would not let Comey's latest comments slide.
