Source says Comey told boss about Trump worries

Legal scholars said they believe Trump's case for executive privilege was weakened because the president has already talked and tweeted about his conversations with Comey.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer refused to say on Tuesday if President Donald Trump had confidence in Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

But Trump twisted his words to reference the number of people killed and injured by the terrorists. In the immediate aftermath of the recent London terror attack, Trump used the platform to pick a fight with London Mayor Sadiq Khan while also posting support for the United Kingdom after the attack.

But while Spicer flaunted Trump's millions of followers, other White House officials have sought to delineate the difference between the tweets and official forms of presidential correspondence.

National security aide Sebastian Gorka told CNN Trump's Twitter was "not policy", on Monday. "It's social media. You know the difference, right?"

Spicer was replaced in the White House briefing room by his deputy Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who rejected suggestions the embattled spokesman was stepping down.

Asked at a news conference if he pressured Comey to drop the Flynn probe, Trump had said, "No. No".

And secondly, the answer one would expect is, I have not had that discussion with him, but I have no reason to think he doesn't have confidence in the attorney general. "And I think the danger is real, the law is clear, and there's no question that we should prevail at the Supreme Court".
