President Trump to take questions day after Comey testimony

GOP shrugs off Comey revelations, sticks with Trump

President Donald Trump says he's "100 percent" willing to testify under oath about his interactions with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Mr Trump also asserted that Mr Comey's comments Thursday, in which the former FBI director implied that the president fired him for pressing forward with the Russian Federation investigation, had failed to prove any collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow nor any obstruction of justice. Without saying the words, Trump accused Comey of lying under oath to Congress. He painted Trump as a chief executive dismissive of the FBI's independence and made clear that he interpreted Trump's request to end an investigation into the former national security adviser as an order coming from the president.

He says nobody would ask a man he hardly knew to pledge loyalty to him.

At a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, US President Donald Trump affirmed his commitment to protecting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies against possible Russian military incursions and made it clear that his problem with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is purely monetary.

While Comey said Trump had lied about him, Trump didn't use that exact terminology in return on Friday. Trump said. "It doesn't make sense".

Trump also he never asked Comey for a pledge of loyalty, another claim the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director made under oath.




He also offered a blunt assessment Friday of Comey's testimony before the Senate intelligence panel.

He said his team emerged "very happy" after Comey's testimony.

The Justice Department put out a statement late Thursday saying that Sessions had recused himself because of his involvement in Trump's 2016 presidential campaign - 'for that reason, and that reason alone.' BIPARTISAN DISCOMFORT It wasn't just the Trump administration that made Comey anxious about the need to protect the integrity and independence of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication", he wrote at 6.10 am. 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.

Trump hinted that tapes of his conversations might exist in the days following his dismissal of Comey.

The president's lawyers plan to file a complaint with the justice department inspector general next week arguing that Mr Comey should not have shared what they call privileged communications, according to two people involved in the matter.
