I would speak under oath on Comey

Share

House and Senate investigators have now fired off requests for both Mr Comey's memos and any recordings the White House kept of his private meetings with President Trump.

Mr Comey, who testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, said the president pressured him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. But a day after the closely watched hearing, Trump struck back with an early morning tweet: "Wow, Comey is a leaker".

Days after he fired Mr Comey on 9 May, Mr Trump tweeted: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Mr Comey told Congress under oath he believed he was sacked to influence his investigation into the Trump campaign. Comey told members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that he had hoped to prod the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to oversee the Russian Federation investigation, which occurred last month.

In nearly three hours of sworn testimony, Comey also said he orchestrated a leak to a New York Times reporter of a memo describing his conversations with Trump in the hope that it would prompt the appointment of a special counsel.

"I didn't say that", Trump said. "I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning, but that's a conclusion I'm sure the special counsel will work towards to find out the intention and whether that's an offense", the former FBI Director said.

Under oath, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director also told the Senate Intelligence Committee that the president had asked him during a one-one dinner at the White House to pledge loyalty.

In the testimony, Comey acknowledged Trump's tweets himself. The other was that he - James Comey - leaked the memos he wrote about his encounters with the president to the press, via a personal friend.

Trump insists that Comey lied in some parts of the testimony he gave Thursday to the Senate intelligence committee. "I'm not going to say 'I want you to pledge allegiance, '" he said.

Comey said Trump claimed that "the cloud" was getting in the way of his ability to do his job.

During his testimony Thursday, Comey told lawmakers that Trump was not a target in the bureau's investigation into Russian Federation.

"I was anxious because the media was camping at the end of my driveway at that point", says Comey.

House Speaker Paul Ryan tried to brush off the conclusion as Trump being new to the White House, but Sen.

Trump also accused Comey of providing a false account of the "loyalty pledge" incident.
