White House tries to regroup, but Trump isn't helping

White House tries to regroup, but Trump isn't helping

His hotly awaited appearance on Capitol Hill comes as probes by the Justice Department and several congressional committees have focused on Trump's inner circle, with investigators said to be examining contacts between top White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Trump's White House and its allies are crafting a strategy aimed at undermining Comey's credibility.

All four broadcast networks - ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox - reportedly plan to air live coverage of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The comments were Trump's first public reaction to Comey's decision to testify publicly about his interactions with the president.

Kasowitz is no shrinking violet - he's known for being a bulldog advocating for President Donald Trump, a hard-nosed fighter willing to mix it up.

Comey will testify on June 8 before a congressional panel probing allegations of Russian interference in last year's USA election, the Senate Intelligence Committee said on June 1, 2017.

Later, in an interview with NBC News on May 11, Trump stated that he fired Comey because the Trump-Russia investigation wasn't real.

Mr Trump was asked about his message for Mr Comey as the president welcomed Republican congressional leaders to the White House.

For months Trump has denied that the investigation is of any outcome, blaming it on sour grapes from Democrats over the results of the election.

And while the administration appears to be working to build a barrier between the White House and the Russian Federation inquiry, Comey's testimony presents questions: will that wall really hold up?

But it is possible, the official added, that the White House could beef up its rapid-response operation as it does some retooling of Trump's communications effort.

Trump only has one item on his official schedule that day: a lunch with the Faith and Freedom Coalition that runs from 11:30 1:30 p.m.

Senior aide Kellyanne Conway recently criticised the media for having "this obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what of he does as President".

Besides Kushner, Cohen and Flynn, the Justice and Congressional investigations are also looking into the Russian Federation ties of former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort, political consultant Roger Stone, and foreign affairs advisor Carter Page.

"If we feel he crosses a line, we'll fire back", said Ed Rollins, co-chairman of Great America PAC.
