Trump is willing to testify under oath on Comey

Certainly President Trump did not come out a victor, on optics or on substance, despite Comey's stating that the president himself was not personally being investigated. He said during last year's campaign that the Hillary Clinton investigation was closed, opened and closed again.

Special counsel Robert Mueller must proceed to do his job.

Trump's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, denied both of Comey's claims in a statement on Thursday after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's appearance. But special counsels are not good for presidents.

President Trump's tweet said: "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication. and WOW, Comey is a leaker".

"And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it according to everybody that I read today, but I did not say that".

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Comey testified that Trump asked him for his loyalty and asked him to end the Flynn probe.

At one point, he practically dared President Trump to release any recordings of their conversations, a prospect the president once alluded to in a tweet.

Several media reports indicate that conversation could happen in the coming weeks.

"I found him to be credible, candid and thorough", Collins said of Comey on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". The friend was later identified as Daniel Richman, a professor at Columbia Law School.

And Friday evening, Sen.

Here's why Europe's top clubs are battling over goalkeeping ace Gianluigi Donnarumma
He started off as a third choice keeper behind Diego Lopez and Christian Abbiati after his promotion into the first team squad. He made his debut in an International Champions Cup match against Real Madrid, replacing Lopez in the 72nd minute.

Congressional investigators from the House and Senate are also conducting their own probes.

Democrats and some legal experts have cited those actions to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation probe. Additionally, the committee has subpoenaed former Obama administration officials John Brennan, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power, in relation to the question of whether intelligence information was improperly shared or distributed for political purposes.

"No I didn't say that", Trump stated abruptly, taking questions at a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis in the Rose Garden. The committee is seeking the materials by June 23. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the committee, both said Thursday they believed Comey's account of the events. But it was a battle nobody won, however many troubling questions it raised and answers it brought to light.

Under questioning Thursday, Comey reaffirmed the intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the election. The picture presented by Comey is instead of a president driven mad by the investigation, in particular by his inability to get the FBI director to say publicly that he isn't under investigation - when, in fact, he wasn't under investigation.

One thing we do know about the Mueller investigation is the lawyers he has brought onto the team. "We decided the best move would be to hold it, keep it in a box, document it, figure out what to do with it down the road", he said of the Flynn investigation request.

The Justice Department has denied that a third meeting occurred.

According to Comey, Trump believed the Russian Federation investigation was a "cloud" over his presidency, preventing him from making great "deals" for America.

"I've seen the tweet about tapes".

On March 20, Comey informed Congress that the FBI was investigating possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia's interference in the 2016 election. Comey landed blows, but the political and legal fight goes on.
