US President in slanging match with former Federal Bureau of Investigation director

Stephanopoulos asked Comey whether believed Trump's denial.

The "failing New York Times", as Trump likes to call it, sent out a news alert last night titled "James Comey doesn't mince words in his new book: 'This president is unethical, and untethered to truth.' Here's our critic's review".

The dossier included intelligence suggesting the Kremlin was engaged in an effort to assist Trump's campaign for president.

"He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a bad Director of the FBI", Trump responded.

85000-year-old finger found in desert points to early human migrations
A hippopotamus tooth found at the site was dated to 90,000 years old, as were the sediment layers surrounding the stone tools. The Al Wusta bone fits with that narrative. "It really challenges that idea that humans only left 60,000 years ago", he said.

Sleep obviously did not come easily to Mr Trump who was up at 5am aggressively tweeting that it was a "great honour" to fire Mr Comey, 57, in May a year ago. "I was floating above myself looking down saying, 'You're sitting here briefing the incoming President of the United States about prostitutes in Moscow'". "But there's a lot of people I know who don't agree with me on that".

He compares Trump's need for loyalty to that of a mob boss, claims that Trump repeatedly asked him to disprove lewd claims about him that surfaced in the so-called Steele dossier, and repeated the accusation that Trump told him to back off an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. "And I remember thinking, 'How could your wife think there's a 1 percent chance you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?' I'm a flawed human being, but there is literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true. How might we stop it?'" Comey said.

"I don't think we are surprised by the fact that James Comey continues to spread false information".

"You guys will cover it endlessly all day today".

Gold Coast: Indian weightlifters claimed two more medals on the second day of the Commonwealth Games here on Friday. From 6.30pm another rash of medals will be handed out in the velodrome, including the men's sprint finals at 8.50pm.

Trump has often publicly criticized Comey since firing him, but escalated his attacks in response to the book.

The book is due to be released on Tuesday, but Comey has already appeared on television to promote it and the White House has been strategizing for weeks about how to discredit him.

The interviews are Comey's first public comments since he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June, when he accused Trump of firing him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

"It was all, 'What can we say about what they did and how it effects the election that we just had, '" Comey said.

Now send 360-degree photos on Facebook Messenger
It'll likely be less dramatic as most users probably don't have anything that urgently needs to be shared in a 360-degree photo. Facebook also says that you can share HD video , but this is for some odd reason limited to 720p rather than 1080p.

Toward the end of the 2016 campaign, Trump praised "the courage" of the FBI for reopening its investigation of Clinton's use of a private email server - a development Clinton has blamed for her election loss. Trump has denied any collusion.
