Lewandowski said Comey has no authority to determine what is "classified".

The interview was called "unhinged", "rambling" and "disastrous" on social media. Conway praised Trump's "analytical and conversation skills" and said Trump appreciated the platform.

On Fox & Friends, Trump again called the Mueller investigation "a witch-hunt" and insisted there was "no collusion".

During a private dinner between Trump and Comey, the president said he "had spoken to people who had been on...the trip with him and they had reminded him that he didn't stay overnight in Russian Federation for that", Comey writes in the book.

"Those memos are about me and they are phony memos", Trump told Fox. The duo was part of the Special Counsel's office for a short period of time but was removed after the discovery of the text messages and the pairs open biased regarding Trump. I'm probably biased towards law enforcement.

Comey has denied the charge. The Justice Department's internal watchdog is reviewing whether classified information in the memos was handled appropriately.

Comey had denied allegations by Trump on Fox that he leaked classified information.

"The bottom line is, I see no credible claim by any serious person that that violated the law", Comey said on CNN on Wednesday. The dossier contains unverified allegations about an apparent episode involving Trump and prostitutes in a Ritz-Carlton hotel room.
