"I asked you directly yesterday if the president had already made a decision to fire James Comey when he met with the deputy attorney general and the attorney general, and you said no", Karl said, in reference to the memos Rod Rosenstein and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III presented to the president. Meanwhile, the White House scrambled to explain itself. During an interview with Fox News' Jeanine Pirro Trump refused to say yes or no when he was asked point blank whether Spicer will continue in his post.
When asked to describe how he'd characterize the investigation, McCabe said, "We consider it to be a highly significant investigation".
Moreover, The New York Times reported that Trump has also become "increasingly dissatisfied" with the performance of his chief of staff Reince Priebus as well as communications director Michael Dubke.
In case you still haven't heard, Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday night amidst rumors that the bureau's investigation into the president's ties to Russian Federation were heating up bigly.

But there is a clear consensus and outrage over the White House's decision to send the President's bodyguard to deliver the termination letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation while Comey himself was at a field office in Los Angeles, he said. "The first target will be the leak investigation, and then, long term, if Donald Trump appoints some crony, that could make the whole Russian Federation investigation go away". In congressional testimony on Thursday, the FBI's acting director, Andrew McCabe, directly contradicted Sanders.
It's like Sean Spicer isn't even trying anymore.
When a public vote of confidence for current Press Secretary Sean Spicer equates to either praise for his "ratings" or musings about doing away with press conferences altogether, one might begin to wonder when the actual firing could come. If the answer is no, Trump never taped Comey, then Spicer would have said that at the briefing forthrightly: Nope, never happened, heard it straight from the boss's mouth 20 minutes ago.
