Key moments of Trump-Comey clash and what's come after

Donald Trump floats canceling White House press briefings after spate of inaccuracies

[Trump] has been especially critical of Mr. Spicer, they said, openly musing about replacing him and telling people in his circle that he kept his own press secretary out of the loop in dismissing Mr. Comey until the last possible moment because he feared that the communications staff would leak the news.

President Trump has faced a backlash for sacking Mr Comey, who had been investigating alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election. "[The candidates] have been vetted over their lifetime essentially, but very well-known, highly respected, really talented people".

Trump also claimed Thursday that he asked Comey at one point if he was the subject of an FBI investigation, and that Comey said no. Trump has said that wasn't the reason for his decision. No White House aide appeared on the Sunday news shows, leaving Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, to defend Trump.

"I think, in many ways, our institutions are under assault, both externally - and that's the big news here, is the Russian interference in our election system", said James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence. His allegiance appears to remain with Comey; in fact, McCabe in congressional testimony Thursday directly contradicted a White House claim that "the rank and file of the Federal Bureau of Investigation had lost confidence in their director". He appeared to contradict the White House this week when he described the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election as "a highly significant investigation".

There are six known candidates who interviewed for the position on Saturday at Justice Department headquarters.

Ms Fisher served as assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Criminal Division.

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, setting off a wave of backlash that has included Democratic calls for a special prosecutor.

The Trump Administration is wasting no time in naming Comey's replacement.

Trump is mulling expanding the communications team and has eyed hiring producers from Fox News, according to one White House official.

During his Twitter rant Friday morning, Trump also suggested he may stop press briefings, threatened the "fake media" and excused his aides for not giving journalists accurate information.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein plan to interview four candidates on Saturday for a nominee that Trump will send to the Senate.
