Trump Lawyer to File Complaint Against James Comey for Leaking

As he put it, to decide who to trust, one would have to assess the consistency of a person's statements, as well as look at his track record, demeanour, and record over time; a clear signal that on all these scores, Comey's record is better than Trump's.

President Trump on if "tapes" exist of his conversations with Comey: "Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the near future".

James Comey is a 30-year career law enforcement officer and prosecutor with a reputation as straight shooter.

"I didn't say that", said Trump referring to the Comey testimony, indicating that Trump asked that the investigation go away.

"Some of the things he said just weren't true", Trump said, adding he is "100 per cent" willing to "speak under oath" to give his version of those events.

Washington's watering holes opened much before the regular noon hour, offering a ringside view of a fired bitter Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey lobbing an "L bomb" at the POTUS on multiple TV screens.

At a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, US President Donald Trump affirmed his commitment to protecting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies against possible Russian military incursions and made it clear that his problem with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is purely monetary.

Trump's private attorney, Marc Kasowitz, seized on Comey's admission that he had told Trump on multiple occasions that he was not personally under investigation and maintained the testimony made clear that Trump "never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone". "Didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel".

A Republican senator is taking President Donald Trump to task for not clearing up a burning question: whether he has tape recordings of his conversations with his then-FBI Director James Comey. "I know no president has ever asked that question, but I do".

Next to them, Comey was some combination of Captain America and Pope Francis for plain moral rectitude - sometimes even at his own expense, as when he admitted failing to push back forcefully enough against the president's misbehavior.

"In my view, this testimony constitutes evidence of an intention to interfere or potentially obstruct at least a portion of the Russian Federation investigation, if not more", Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the house intelligence committee - which is conducting a parallel Russian Federation probe - wrote in a statement.

Trump's Twitter account had been quiet throughout Comey's testimony accusing the administration of spreading "lies".

During nearly three hours of statements Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey described himself as "stunned" by Trump's "very disturbing" and "very concerning" behavior in several of their meetings. "I took it as, this is what he wants me to do". "I don't think that's at all the case", said Ryan on Thursday.

Congressional investigators have spent close to six months now, digging into possible ties between the campaign of President Donald Trump and the Russian government, and a handful of key figures have captured their attention.

Comey said during his testimony that he asked a friend to release contents of the memos he'd written about his conversations with the president to a reporter.

One of Trump's last opponents to drop out was Ted Cruz, who on the morning of the pivotal IN primary let loose a three-minute tirade about Trump's lack of honesty.

Later, White House spokesman Sean Spicer responded to criticisms of Trump's speech saying they were "silly", and that Trump's presence at the summit proved his commitment.

Trump has knocked off some Obama regulations via executive orders, but no major legislation has come out of Congress.

His readiness to deliver falsehoods to his audiences and journalists frustrated his primary campaign rivals, who saw GOP voters seem to accept Trump at his word, regardless of evidence to the contrary.
