Instead, the political world's eyes were on former FBI Director James Comey, beginning on Sunday night when he sat down with ABC's George Stephanopoulos.
In response to Comey's interview, Trump said in a tweet Wednesday morning, "Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russian Federation investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!" But even before his blockbuster book deal, Comey was doing just fine. "I have never met him and I don't know what he will do on the global arena". According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Comey earned about $6 million during his a year ago at Bridgewater.
In "A Higher Loyalty", he describes PresidentTrump as a man "untethered to truth".
"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR", Trump wrote. Comey adds that Trump "wrapped up" the conversation "by returning to the issue of finding leakers".
President Donald Trump questioned the basis of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation in a tweet early Saturday morning, alleging that the probe started after former FBI Director James Comey "illegally leaked classified" information.
Trump fired James Comey in May of previous year. Trump said via Twitter early Wednesday.
The memos include new details about a series of meetings and phone calls Comey had with Trump in the weeks before he was sacked in May of 2017.

"His attempts to intimidate, circumvent the law & undermine integrity of law enforcement investigations demand immediate action to protect the Mueller investigation", she said.
Comey said he cautioned Trump against ordering an investigation into a salacious intelligence dossier alleging an 2013 encounter involving prostitutes in Moscow.
"President Trump's interference was a blatant effort to deny justice, and Director Comey was right to document it as it happened - in real time", he said in a statement.
The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele about Trump's ties to Russian Federation and included an allegation that involved prostitutes urinating on one another in a hotel room while Trump watched. Comey said the dossier's allegations had not been verified by the time he left the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Comey made the surprising admission during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June 2017 that he had leaked his memos, most of which were marked secret, to a friend with the stated objective of having them reach the press.
