These reasons contradicted the White House's assertions - and even the widely disseminated termination letter Trump sent Comey - that the dismissal was based on the recommendations of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who criticized Comey's handling of the email investigation into Hillary Clinton a year ago. "And I've talked to the president, the president has nothing further to add". Mason asked. "What should we interpret from that the president has 'nothing further to add?'"

Earlier Friday, Trump issued an apparent warning to James Comey, tweeting that he had better hope there are no "tapes" of their conversations.

"Are there recording devices in the Oval Office or in the residence?" "I was going to fire regardless of (their) recommendation", Trump said in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, calling Comey a "showboat" and "grandstander" who led the agency into turmoil.

Many perceived the tweet as a threat directed at the recently fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Spicer also said Trump's tweet this morning was not meant as a threat to Comey not to speak to the media. "I$3 t is a crime to intimidate or threaten any potential witness with the intent to influence, delay, or prevent their official testimony", they say in the letter.

Meanwhile, U.S. media, citing unnamed Federal Bureau of Investigation sources, reported that Trump pressured Comey to pledge his personal loyalty to the U.S. president, which the reports say Comey refused to do. According to the accounts, Comey said he couldn't do that given his job but promised to be honest.

Trump did, however, deny that he asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation director to pledge loyalty, but he did say that it wouldn't be "a bad question to ask".

Despite repeated denials from Trump administration officials that it wasn't Trump's decision to fire Comey, President Trump came out and said during an interview with NBC News that it was his decision and that he had "this Russian Federation thing" on his mind when he made the decision.

Even before Trump's provocative tweet, the White House was scrambling to clarify why Comey was sacked.

Conyers is the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and Cummings serves as the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

They've requested the White House turn over any recordings to Congress.
