President Trump Accuses Fired FBI Director James Comey Of Lying Under Oath

Trump said he would be willing to testify under oath to that effect.

Alan Dershowitz spoke with Brian Kilmeade about yesterday's testimony by former FBI Director James Comey and how the media is blacking out the single most important part of the testimony.

While Comey did not make a determination on that fact, he did say he was "sure" that the special counsel in the investigation into possible links with the Trump campaign and Russia, Robert Mueller, would investigate.

He claimed the Trump team had told "lies, plain and simple" and also accused Mr Trump of defaming him and the reputation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The alleged conversation between Mr Comey and the President earlier this year, apparently backed up by the President's son, led Mr Comey to write a series of memos about their relationship and which were leaked to the press.

Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee asked on Friday for Comey's memos to be handed over, and separately sent a letter to the White House demanding any "recordings or memoranda" of conversations with Comey that Trump or the White House may or may not possess.

When pressed on the matter, Trump said: "Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future".

Hours later, Mr Trump ignored reporters when asked about whether Mr Comey was telling the truth.

"I hardly know the man", Trump said on Friday. "I'm not going to say 'I want you to pledge allegiance, '" he said. Moments later, he added: "You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer".

President Donald Trump's private lawyer plans to file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey with the Senate judiciary committee and Justice Department Inspector General for leaking memos according to reports.

Sitting alone at a small table facing a bank of senators who fired question after question, Comey gave short, deliberative answers.

The president ducked twice when asked whether he had recorded his chats with Comey, as he had once suggested.

The House panel requested if the recordings exist that they be submitted by 23 June.

Mr Trump refused to say whether those private exchanges were taped.

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders also defended Trump, responding to Comey's assertion that the president had repeatedly lied.

Trump's stunning charges escalated an already fraught confrontation between his administration and Comey.
