Trump On Comey Hearing: "No Collusions, No Obstruction, He's A Leaker"


While he spoke, many on Twitter expressed their incredulity over Trump's Comey claims.

During a news conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on June 9, President Donald Trump said he was willing to testify under oath in order to refute claims made by former FBI Director James Comey.

Along the same lines, some Trump sympathizers heard Comey say that Trump actually wants the FBI investigation into Russia's election meddling to continue, while Trump opponents took Comey's remarks as evidence that Trump wants to obstruct it.

When pressed on the matter, Trump said: "Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future".

Shortly after he fired Comey in May, Trump tweeted "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

He said the president had pressured him to drop a probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whom Mr Trump fired for misleading the White House over M Flynn's contacts with Moscow's ambassador.

And on Friday, the committee sent a letter to Comey requesting any notes or memoranda "memorializing discussions Comey had with President Trump". You suggested he didn't tell the truth in everything he said.

On Flynn: "I didn't say that".

I think anyone that hangs that hat on anything coming out of this administration is a bigger fool than that man running the country and I understand the proportion of foolery we are dealing with, which is why I want to make sure we aren't lead astray.

Trump also retweeted a comment from attorney Alan Dershowitz, who had written: "We should stop talking about obstruction of justice".

Comey said a decision was made not report to Sessions a February 14 White House meeting where Trump pressed the director to drop the FBI's inquiry into Flynn, whom Trump fired for withholding information about his contacts with foreign governments.

Comey's testimony gave the special counsel plenty of material to consider as he investigates whether the president or his associates acted illegally.

Still, with multiple investigations going on - between the FBI, other intelligence agencies, and congressional committees - it's likely we'll be finding out more about Russian interference in the election.

At another point, Mr. Comey was questioned about the contents of an unverified dossier prepared by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer tasked with compiling potentially damaging information on Mr. Trump for his political opponents. He also admitted that he had leaked to the press memos describing his talks with Trump, saying he hoped the stories would spur the appoint of a special counsel to take over the investigation of the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian Federation, which is what happened. "I'm very anxious about his fitness".

"One hundred percent", Trump said. These were the notes he asked a friend to leak to the press.

He said the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's testimony showed there was "no collusion, no obstruction".
