The White House said Wednesday that President Donald Trump lost confidence in FBI Director James Comey “over the last several months,” but had considered letting Comey go since Trump won the election.
The Department of Justice, bipartisan members of Congress, and the rank-and-file of the FBI also lost confidence in the director, White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
On Monday, Trump spoke with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions “where they had come to him to express their concerns.” Trump asked them to put those concerns and their recommendation in writing, Sanders said.
When asked to explain why the president said on May 1st that he had confidence in the FBI director, Sanders said, “Again, he’s questioned Director Comey’s reason for needing to stay at the FBI. He had countless conversations with members from within the FBI. I think one of the big catalysts that we saw was last week on Wednesday.
