Trump says '100 percent' willing to respond to Comey under oath

Trump says '100 percent' willing to respond to Comey under oath”

Trump also said Friday he would "be glad" to meet with special counsel Robert Mueller to tell his version of the conversations with Comey.

Yesterday, Mr Comey said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes" and "Release all the tapes - I'm good with it".

Mr Trump's aides have dodged questions about whether conversations relevant to the Russian Federation investigation have been recorded, and so did the president in a series of teases.

For example, Trump says he was vindicated by the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director's remarks.

Comey "confirmed a lot of what I said" even though "some of the things that he said just weren't true".

Collins isn't the first Republican to suggest inexperience may be behind some of Trump's moves.

"I didn't say that", Trump answered. "I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time", Trump said.

And he denied that he asked Comey for his loyalty, though he added: "There would be nothing wrong if I did say it". Still, he maintained he had never asked Comey for a pledge of allegiance. I mean think of it.

"That was an excuse by the Democrats who lost an election that some people think they shouldn't have lost, because it's nearly impossible for the Democrats to lose the Electoral College, as you know. It doesn't make sense". "But I didn't say that".

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference with Romanian President Klaus Werner Iohannis in the Rose Garden at the White House, Friday, June 9, 2017, in Washington. John Cornyn of Texas, who sits on the intelligence committee.

Comey testified at a Senate hearing that he made memos after speaking to Trump on several occasions because he feared the president would lie about them. In his public testimony, Comey said he was disturbed and concerned by President Trump's request to drop the investigation into Flynn, as the former FBI director outlined in his written statement to the committee.

In the immediate aftermath of Mueller's appointment, several key Senate Republicans, like Lindsey Graham of SC and John Cornyn of Texas, suggested the House and Senate Intelligence Committees may need to slow down their efforts, in order to stay out of the special counsel's way.

Trump concluded his team emerged "very happy" after Comey's testimony.

Trump had stayed unusually quiet on Thursday, refraining from weighing in on the testimony either in person or on Twitter.

The Russia investigations have consumed the White House and distracted the president and lawmakers from his governing agenda.

Trump answered reporters' questions with brevity.

Comey said he felt uncomfortable with the nature of his personal meetings with Trump, including a private dinner at the White House.

Ryan and other Republicans explained away Trump's interactions with Comey as the understandable blunders of a Washington neophyte.

Comey's testimony about Trump was damaging. They sent a separate request to Trump's White House counsel, Don McGahn, for any record the White House had of their meetings. After Trump fired Comey, the Justice Department appointed Mueller, also a former FBI director, to oversee the investigation into whether Russian Federation coordinated with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 election.
