Trump to evangelicals: We're 'under siege,' will be stronger

"I found him to be credible, candid and thorough", Collins said of Comey on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

Comey did not drop the Flynn investigation and was later fired as FBI director by Trump.

Comey also said that he believed the president had fired him because of the Russian Federation probe, told "lies" about his record at the bureau and sought to redirect the probe away from former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"And did he ask for a pledge of loyalty from you, that's another thing he said", Karl said, seemingly mixing up his question: Comey said that Trump has asked him for his loyalty, not the other way around.

During his Congressional briefing organised by the powerful Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday, Comey confessed that he leaked the information about his interaction with the U.S. president.

"And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it, according to everybody that I read today".

And Comey admitted that he asked a friend to leak those notes to a reporter, correctly betting that the details would prompt the appointment of a special prosecutor.

Comey said he refused on all points, told senators of the detailed memos he had written after his conversations with Trump and said he hoped those conversations were taped because he is confident of their veracity.

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

Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, did not make any major disclosures about any links between Trump or his associates and alleged Russian meddling. But we were very, very happy and, frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said.

They separately wrote the White House counsel Don McGahn asking whether the recordings exist, and if so, that they be produced to the committee by June 23.

The ex-director's statement deepened questions about the basis for his May 9 dismissal and about whether Trump's actions constituted obstruction of justice.

"It crossed a boundary that the president should not have crossed".

Trump made no reference to Comey in his remarks to the Faith and Freedom Coalition's annual gathering. "We are doing really well", he said.

"Well, I didn't say that". He says nobody would ask a man he hardly knew to pledge loyalty to him.

"As long as I'm president, no one is going to stop you from practicing your faith or preaching what is in your heart, " he said.

"No collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker", Trump said during a press briefing from the White House's rose garden on Friday, a day after Comey's testimony had escalated the political storm in the country.

"He also accused Qatar, a key US military partner, of funding terrorism "at a very high level", and said solving the problem in the tiny Persian Gulf nation could be "the beginning of the end of terrorism".

Sessions is due to testify on the Justice Department's budget request on Tuesday in both the House of Representatives and Senate.
