'100 per cent' willing to testify over Comey conversations

12 June 2017

House and Senate investigators have now fired off requests for both Mr Comey's memos and any recordings the White House kept of his private meetings with President Trump.

President Donald Trump has accused fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey of lying to Congress and said he was "100%" willing to testify under oath about their conversations.

Earlier on Friday, Trump took to Twitter to declare "total and complete vindication" in response to Comey's testimony.

Comey said that the president asked him for a loyalty pledge and that he said he "hoped" he could let the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn go because he's a good guy, while Trump denies he said either. When journalists wondered whether Trump was saying that Comey lied under oath, Trump skirted the direct question but didn't change the substance of his point: "I didn't say that".

Donald Trump says he is "100 percent' willing to speak under oath about his conversations with ex-FBI chief James Comey". But we were very, very happy and, frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said.

And Comey told senators why he had decided what he must document every meeting he had with Trump, with a written record. I'm not going to say, "I want you to pledge allegiance". She said someone, either in the White House, the administration or Comey himself, should have set Trump straight.

It's hard to say for sure, but for now we could go with Rep. Eric Swalwell's theory that Trump's press conference wasn't meant to clear anything up, but was instead merely a "clownish performance by a reality show star". Comey's remarks suggested fresh lines of inquiry for Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, as well as for congressional investigations.

Donald Jr. tweeted or retweeted messages more than 60 times during and shortly after Comey's highly-anticipated appearance at the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. You and I are friends.

He also denied that Comey's version of the events of a February 14 meeting, in which Trump said that he "hoped" that the FBI director could let go of an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Mr Trump wrote at 6.10am.

Nearly immediately, journalists and curious observers went looking for more details about the man Comey referred only as "a close friend who is a professor at Columbia law school".
