Published

President Donald Trump said during a Friday press conference that former FBI director James Comey lied during his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump said he never told Comey to back off the investigation into his former national security advisor Mike Flynn.

“I didn’t say that,” Trump remarked. “I will tell you, I didn’t say that. And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it, according to everybody that I have read today. But I did not say that.”

The president also denied he asked Comey for a pledge of loyalty and said he would be “100 percent” willing to testify under oath.

Published

on

A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.

James Mattis takes swipe at Trump: We have gone ‘three years without mature leadership’

Published

On Wednesday, The Atlantic reported that President Donald Trump's former Defense Secretary James Mattis has written a furious condemnation of the president, saying he is incapable of "mature leadership" and accusing him of deliberately trying to turn Americans against one another.

“I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” wrote Mattis, according to the article. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand — one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values — our values as people and our values as a nation ... We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”
