Contradictions by Trump create credibility gap for aides

"There need to be serious changes at the White House, immediately", he said, according to a story on the newspaper's website.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Republican chairman of the House oversight committee, sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday requesting that it turn over all documents and recordings that detail communications between Comey and Trump.
One: "They did not discuss anything having to do with the United States' decision to expel diplomats or impose censure against Russia", Pence said January 15 on CBS.
Representative Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Trump's disclosure only reinforced Democrats' call for an independent probe.
Republicans weren't going that far.
The information had been supplied by a USA ally in the fight against the militant group, the officials said. Bob Corker of Tennessee - have been calling on the White House to change. According to Gallup, Trump has the lowest approval of any new president since the surveys began in 1953. "While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", a White House statement said. NPR's Lucian Kim said the Russian leader used the word zapis, which also can be translated as a "record" or "recording" - feeding speculation over Russia's own intelligence-gathering that centers on the U.S.
Call it the height of naiveté or another in an endless series of attempts by The New York Times - and its ideological sister, The Washington Post - to cripple Donald Trump's presidency. Mr. Trump abruptly fired Mr. Comey in the midst of a continuing investigation into possible collusion between the President's advisers and Russian Federation. "It's the functional equivalent of writing an SOS message, putting it in a bottle and throwing it over the fence of the White House".
Stephen Slick, a former CIA operations officer and now director of the Intelligence Studies Project at the University of Texas-Austin, said rank-and-file intelligence officers remain apolitical and focused on their work.
He said Israel had a long history of getting agents into high-level positions. The newspaper cited a memo Mr Comey wrote shortly after the conversation. Mr. Trump chose to share the details "in the context of the conversation", said Mr. McMaster, suggesting that it was a spontaneous move by the President and not a step he previously discussed with his advisers.
"Working with the United States and others to deal with that terrorist threat is an important part of maintaining our national security and we will continue to do so".
Context matters, and denials are already coming fast and furious, but as reported by The New York Times, relaying an account drawn from Comey's detailed notes of the meeting, Trump's request sounds plainly Nixonian.
With no notice, Trump last week fired FBI director James Comey, who had been leading an investigation of possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the USA presidential election.
National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the President engaged in "routine sharing of information" and nothing more.
That report was backed up by other media outlets, including CNN and the Wall Street Journal, though Israel itself has not officially confirmed the story.
"That conversation was wholly appropriate to the conversation".
The Washington Post report that US President Donald Trump revealed highly classified information about so-called Islamic State (IS) to Russia's foreign minister has understandably disturbed a hornet's nest. "Risking sources and methods is inexcusable, particularly with the Russians". In a statement Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer reaffirmed that the two countries would maintain a close counterterrorism relationship.
