Donald Trump Jr. appears to contradict father's account of private Comey meeting”

Comey also confirmed that the president had made several attempts to derail the investigation into Trump-Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election, which involved a look into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's meetings with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

President Donald Trump claimed Friday that James Comey cleared him of wrongdoing in his testimony to Congress.

Republican Representative Mike Conaway and Democratic Representative Adam Schiff said they had also written to Don McGahn, the White House counsel, and asked him whether White House recordings or memos of Comey's conversations with Trump exist.

Comey repeatedly refused to say in the Senate hearing Thursday whether he thought Trump had obstructed justice. The former FBI director also revealed that he had turned over memos about his conversations with Trump to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller, who was assigned to oversee the Russian Federation investigation.

"One hundred percent", Trump said when asked about his willingness to deliver sworn testimony, CNN reported Trump, as saying during a Rose Garden news conference.

To the Editor: I watched with interest former FBI Director James Comey's sworn testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

"When he tells you to do something, guess what?" Legal experts and pundits say that, along with the firing of Comey itself, could amount to obstruction of justice.

"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication".

During Comey's testimony, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation head painted a clear picture of Trump as a remarkably dishonest man without an ethical bone in his body.

"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.

"You and I are friends: 'Hey, I hope this happens, but you've got to do your job.' That's what he told Comey. I think he's proven himself to be a dishonest man of bad character", Trump Jr said.

Addressing Comey's accusations for the first time in person, Trump also said, at a joint news briefing with visiting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, "And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it, according to everybody that I've read today".

When asked about Comey's claim about the pledge of loyalty, Trump said, "I'm not going to say, I want you to pledge allegiance".
