Trump Jr.: There's 'no ambiguity' in my father's orders

Francis Olson | 14 June, 2017, 03:41

The U.S. House Intelligence Committee leaders sent a letter to the White House today, asking if any tape recordings exist of conversations between ousted FBI Director James Comey and President Donald Trump.

President Trump and Romania's President Klaus Iohannis at a press conference in the Rose Garden of the White House on Friday.

And Comey testified, the president pressured him to end the probe of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

US President Donald Trump has said he never asked former FBI director James Comey to drop the investigation of sacked national security adviser Michael Flynn's Russian Federation contacts and said he was willing "100%" to give his own account under oath.

Mr Comey testified that he had given a memo, including details about a conversation with President Trump, to a friend - who was later identified as law professor Daniel Richman.

"I can definitively say that the president is not a liar, and frankly I'm insulted by that question", Sanders said at a White House press briefing.

"I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time", Trump told reporters.

"And some of the things that he said just weren't true", Mr Trump said, lashing out at Mr Comey and branding him a "leaker" for indirectly providing to reporters the contents of memos summarising their private conversations before he was sacked.

"At the news conference, Trump also repeated criticism of Comey first leveled in a tweet Friday at 6:10 a.m". "He [Comey]'s a leaker but we want to get back to running our great country".

The One X also has twice the RAM as the other systems, which itself is about 50 percent faster than its predecessors' memory. There are no new features on Xbox One X , just better load times, image quality, and processing power.

Trump Jr. argued Saturday that Comey was being disingenuous in his description of the meeting.

Comey also made a point that Trump had asked him multiple times to express "loyalty" to him.

"I'd like to invite the president to testify before the Senate", the top Senate Democrat said on CBS News' "Face the Nation".

Comey prepared detailed personal memos after his conversations with the president.

"I hardly know the man".

However, Comey didn't say that the president's words were part of an effort to obstruct his investigation.

In his opening statement to Congress, Mr Comey said the President told him: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

In the most eagerly anticipated USA congressional hearing in years, Comey told lawmakers the Trump administration had lied and defamed him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation after the president dismissed him on May 9.
