Trump's legal team to file complaint with DOJ about Comey leak

The president said Comey's testimony on Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee mostly vindicated his previous claims about their interactions.

The message was the Trump's first since Wednesday - a day before Comey's testimony before the Senate intelligence committee that riveted the nation.

When pressed if he would be willing to testify under oath about his version of the events, Trump answered, "100 percent".

Standing with the president of Romania, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partner, Mr Trump at last confirmed his commitment to the alliance's mutual defence pact, Article 5, uttering words he deliberately did not say when he spoke at Nato's gathering in Belgium last month.

On Friday, Trump said Comey's testimony proved there was "no collusion, no obstruction" and that Comey is "a leaker".

"I knew there might come a day when I would need a record of what had happened, not just to defend myself, but to defend the Federal Bureau of Investigation and our integrity as an institution and the independence of our investigative function", Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee.

But we were very, very happy and, frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said. "But I did not say that".

Apple introduced upgraded MacBook Pros and iMacs yesterday that provide quite the leap in performance and brighter displays. The Kaby Lake processors on the iMacs are clubbed with up to 32GB RAM on the 21.5 inch and 64GB on the 27-inch model .

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.

"We also were aware of facts that I can't discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a Russia-related investigation problematic", Comey said.

"He's a leaker", Trump said Friday. Trump knows if he secretly recorded me or not, and, if he did, I have no hard feelings.

Trump ignored a question on how he could accuse Comey of lying on one hand, and being truthful on the other.

Trump refused that he had asked Comey for a pledge of loyalty and never told Comey he hoped the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn would go away.

Trump published his tweet shortly after 6 a.m. on Friday morning, during the time frame when he typically shares his thoughts on Twitter. The president's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, plans to file a complaint asking the Justice Department to look into Comey's leaking of information.
