Podcast: Trump’s Downward Spiral Over Comey and Russia


Adam Quinn of the University of Birmingham talks to BBC Radio Foyle on Friday morning about Donald Trump’s admission that it was he — and not the Deputy Attorney General — who decided to fire FBI Director James Comey, and that the catalyst was the expanding Trump-Russia investigation.

The discussion took place before the latest escalation, Donald Trump’s tweet threatening Comey — “[He] better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
