Former FBI director James Comeysays both he and his organisation were lied about and defamed by the Trump administration after he was sacked while investigating possible links between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 election campaign team.
Comey accused Trump of lying in multiple instances in the hearing.
He added he "knew there would come a day" he would need a contemporaneous account of the interactions because he was so uncomfortable about Mr Trump's requests for his loyalty.
"We had an investigation open at the time so that gave me a queasy feeling", he added. "I was sacked in some way to change, or the endeavor was to change, the way the Russian Federation investigation was being conducted". "I have no idea", she said.
One D.C. viewing party enjoyed an "FBI Breakfast", consisting of French toast (F), bacon (B) and ice cream (I). "You watch", Trump said. Yet it is differences of opinion among Republicans, who control both houses of Congress, that are standing in the way of what Trump wants to do on health care and other issues.
But Comey's testimony about the President was also damaging.
I am Marc Kasowitz, President Trump's personal lawyer.
Asked if Trump had acted appropriately, Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr said: "I don't think that from what I've read there's anything of wrongdoing, but I will match that with his (Comey's) verbal testimony, and weigh it against the evidence of our investigation to date". The president told a religious gathering that "we're under siege" but will emerge "bigger and better and stronger than ever".
He went on to say he believed the entrenched interests in Washington are against him but that "we will not back down from doing what is right".

Comey's accusations could further mire Trump's administration in legal difficulties, as special counsel Robert Mueller and several congressional committees investigate alleged Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow.
For his part, Trump denies all charges against him.
The White House's initial story - that Comey was sacked because of his handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails - "didn't make sense to me for a whole bunch of reasons", Comey said Thursday.
The firing came, Comey said, after he was pushed to drop the probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
At the hearing, Comey said that Trump's comments were "disturbing", and he purposely wrote a memo about it that purposely avoided classified information so that it could not be shared with colleagues.
After Comey was sacked, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed she had talked to "countless" Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, and that "the rank and file of the Federal Bureau of Investigation had lost confidence in their director". This, Warner argued, appeared to be an instance of Trump threatening Comey's job. Disturbed, Comey immediately began creating a paper trail of memos documenting every aspect of his meetings with Trump.
Wittes has not said how he and Comey became friends, nor has Richman, although both men were federal prosecutors in NY around the same time.
In an explosive revelation, Mr Comey said that when Mr Trump tweeted of the possible existence of tapes of their conversations, he directed a "good friend" to leak the content of his memos to a journalist.
