I would '100 percent' be willing to testify about Comey under oath

Francis Olson | 15 June, 2017, 19:42

During more than two hours of testimony, Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee he believed Trump had directed him to drop an FBI probe into the Republican president's former national security adviser Michael Flynn as part of the broader Russian Federation investigation.

Comey admitted he leaked the information as part of the FBI's probe into Russia's involvement in USA elections and the connections of the president's former national security adviser Michael Flynn with Russian officials.

US President Donald Trump has characterised the leak of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's memo of their conversations "cowardly" and suggested the act could have legal consequences.

A few days after he suddenly dismissed Comey in May, amid the FBI's investigation into links between his campaign and Russian officials, Trump taunted the former FBI director on Twitter by suggesting that he had recorded their conversations. "But we want to get back to running our great country".

The US president said he would go under oath to give his version of what happened between him and the FBI Director he fired.

Comey said he did not know whether the circumstances of his firing, and Trump's overall behavior toward him, would be considered obstruction of justice. Think of that. I hardly know the man.

"You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry", Trump said.

President Trump 'investigated over possible obstruction of justice'
Reports said Trump approached Coats and Rogers to get their help in derailing the Russian Federation investigation. Comey also testified he had told Trump he was not under investigation.

And Comey admitted he asked a friend to leak those notes to a reporter, betting - correctly - that the details would prompt the appointment of a special prosecutor.

"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. It doesn't make sense.

"I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the near future", he said.

Donald Trump shakes hands with his Romanian counterpart Klaus Iohannis after a joint news conference in the Rose Garden on Friday.

"No collusion. No obstruction", Trump said Friday.

President Trump will reveal "next week" whether or not he has taped private conversations between himself and fired FBI Director James Comey, according to the president's legal team.

But Trump continued to tease whether there were recordings of his conversations with Comey. And he said multiple times that he choose to take detailed notes about his interactions with Trump because he anxious the White House and President would lie about them if he didn't.
