Donald Trump's son seems to confirm James Comey's account of Flynn investigation

Donald Trump's son seems to confirm James Comey's account of Flynn investigation”

US President Donald Trump punched back Friday against James Comey, accusing the ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director of lying about their private conversations - and saying he is "100 percent" willing to testify under oath.

Trump lashed out at Comey, dubbing him a "leaker" for indirectly providing reporters with the contents of his memos summarizing their private conversations in the weeks before he was sacked.

Trump denied that he had asked Comey for his loyalty, though, adding, "There would be nothing wrong if I did say it".

Comey has accused Trump of firing him to derail an investigation into Russian interference in United States elections and then lying about the motives for the move.

Meanwhile, the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, which is also probing Russian election meddling, wrote Comey requesting his notes memorializing his conversations with Trump.

"That didn't make sense to me for a whole bunch of reasons, including the time and all the water that had gone under the bridge since those hard decisions that had to be made", Comey said.

Trump declined to say whether recordings of his conversations with Comey exist, saying he would have more to say on the matter soon.

Donald Trump shakes hands with his Romanian counterpart Klaus Iohannis after a joint news conference in the Rose Garden on Friday.

The tweet broke a mysterious period of silence on social media for the President, who until then had not tweeted since June 7.

While Comey has generally had a distinguished career with the U.S. Department of Justice, I was disappointed to hear that at the moment of truth with our new President, Mr. Comey failed to do his duty - speak truth to power. He also said Trump wanted him to back off on the FBI investigation of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Comey said it should be special counsel Robert Mueller's task to determine whether Trump had obstructed justice, and therefore, had opened himself up to possible impeachment proceedings, keeping the allegations on Russian Federation in mind.

During nearly three hours of statements Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey described himself as "stunned" by Trump's "very disturbing" and "very concerning" behavior towards him.

Comey admitted that, after his firing by Trump on May 9, he asked a friend to leak the documentation of the contents of the Trump meetings to the press in the hope of prompting the appointment of a special prosecutor.
