WASHINGTON (AP)– President Donald Trump stated Sunday in a tweet that he never asked previous FBI Director James Comey to stop investigating his ex-national security consultant Michael Flynn, releasing a fresh rejection amidst a shifting timeline on when he may have understood that Flynn had actually lied to the FBI.Trump said
on Twitter before dawn, “I never ever asked Comey to stop examining Flynn. Simply more Phony News covering another Comey lie!” The president restated his variation of occasions after Comey affirmed prior to Congress in June that Trump had actually asked him in an one-on-one meeting if he could see to “letting Flynn go.”
I never ever asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Simply more Fake News covering another Comey lie!
