Trump accuses ex-FBI chief Comey of lying

ABC Scores Biggest Crowd During Comey Testimony But CNN Beats Broadcasters In Demo

Speaking to reporters a day after Mr Comey testified to the Senate intelligence panel, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said it was "beyond the pale" that Mr Trump had asked Mr Comey, then head of the independent law enforcement agency, for his loyalty.

Mr Trump said, Mr Comey recalled, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

The leaders of the House of Representatives intelligence committee's investigation of Russian Federation and the 2016 USA election said on Friday they had written to Comey to request any notes or memoranda related to discussions with Trump. It doesn't make sense.

Kasowitz pushed back on parts of Comey's testimony, claiming Thursday that Trump did not pressure Comey to drop the Flynn investigation and did not ask for loyalty from the former FBI director.

"What struck me is that it is completely unacceptable for the president to ask the FBI director to be personally loyal to him and to ask the FBI director to drop it with regards to an ongoing investigation into his former national security adviser", said Sen.

"I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the near future", he said.

"You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry", the president said.

Afghanistan should focus on its internal affairs instead of blaming Pakistan: Army
A U.S. watchdog said last month that a record number of civilians died in 2016, 16 years after then-U.S. Ghani said that over the past two years as many as 11,000 foreign fighters have joined the group.

Mr Comey testified that Mr Trump told him on January 26 he expected loyalty from the Federal Bureau of Investigation director and the next month urged him to drop the Flynn probe. "I took it as, this is what he wants me to do", Comey said. "I'll tell you about it over a short period of time".

But there is no known evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and the USA, and President Donald Trump has dismissed the story as "fake news".

Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee in a hearing that the Trump administration had offered "shifting explanations" for his firing, which was confusing and concerning. Trump said at the news conference.

Trump broke his silence on Twitter following explosive testimony by Comey, declaring "total and complete vindication".

"I would be glad to tell [special counsel Robert Mueller] exactly what I told you", he said.

"But Comey's testimony about the President was also damaging".

The Senate Judiciary Committee asked the White House last month about such tapes.
