Trump claims he did not fire Comey over Russia:

President Trump claimed Thursday he did not fire James Comey as FBI director over the Russia investigation.

“Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!” he tweeted.

Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!

Trump last year, however, cited investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election in explaining his decision to fire Comey.

“Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey,” Trump said during an interview on “NBC Nightly News,” insisting “there was no good time to do it.”

“And in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story,’ ” Trump continued.

“It’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won … This was an excuse for having lost an election.”
