Growing Evidence of Trump’s Interference in Russia Investigation
May 19, 2017
Trump admitted he fired the FBI director because of the Russia investigation.
TRUMP: “And in fact when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said 'you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story.”
A law enforcement official said “there is a whole lot of interfering” in the Russia election.
CBS NEWS: “Within the FBI, the Russia investigation is considered to be ‘a crisis,’the source said, and ‘there is a whole lot of interfering.’”
Trump threatened the former FBI director this morning to stay quiet.
TRUMP: “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
The White House admitted that removing the FBI director would help end the Russia investigation.
SANDERS: “We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity… and we think that we’ve actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen.”
