Trump Denies Ever Urging Comey to Close Flynn Investigation

Written by  Melanie Arter

(CNSNews.com) - President Donald Trump on Thursday denied that he in any way urged former FBI Director James Comey to back down from the investigation into former National Security Director Michael Flynn.

When asked whether he urged Comey “in any way, shape or form to close or to back down the investigation” into Flynn, Trump said, “No. No. Next question.” “As you look back over the past six months or year, have you had any recollection where you've wondered if anything you have done has been something that might be worthy of criminal charges in these investigations or impeachment, as some on the left are implying?” a reporter asked. “I think it’s totally ridiculous. Everybody thinks so, and again, we have to get back to working our country properly so that we can take care of the problems that we have. We have plenty of problems,” Trump said during a joint White House press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. “We've done a fantastic job. We have a tremendous group of people. Millions and millions of people out there that are looking at what you had just said, and said, ‘What are they doing?’” he said. The president said when he decided to fire Comey, he thought “it would be a bipartisan decision,” because even Democrats were saying “terrible things” about Comey.
