Trump says Comey not telling truth under oath

Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication.and WOW, Comey is a leaker!

On Friday, President Trump, in a series of tweets, accused former #Fbi Director James #Comey of lying under oath to Congress.

The White House also highlighted the fact Mr Comey stopped short of accusing Mr Trump of obstructing justice - a potentially impeachable offence.

In his testimony on Thursday, Comey said Trump was never an explicit subject of the Russian Federation probe, CNN reported. Trump scheduled a joint news conference with visiting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

The fired FBI director explained that the president frequently asked for assurances that he and his colleagues were not under investigation from the FBI.

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

Sacked FBI chief Comey delivered his bombshell allegations at a Senate hearing Thursday, saying in his sworn testimony that he had asked a "friend" identified as a Columbia University law professor to release a memo of his conversations with the president to the press.

The Trump White House had been considering Robert Mueller as a top candidate to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation before the deputy USA attorney general changed course and tapped Mueller to serve as special counsel investigating Russian interference in last year's election, two sources familiar with the process told NPR.

Meanwhile, U.S. intelligence contractor Reality Leigh Winner was arrested and charged with leaking a classified report after she was accused of providing a National Security Agency (NSA) document to investigative website The Intercept.

White House sources told Politico that the president made the decision to stay off Twitter Wednesday night, but he watched the hearing Thursday.

Throughout all of this, Comey reflected he could have been more explicit with the president about the inappropriateness of Trump asking about Michael Flynn's investigation. The veteran lawman expressed confidence that could be a matter ripe for investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, though he declined to offer an opinion on whether it met such a threshold.

Trump confidante and one-time campaign manager Corey Lewandowski criticized fired FBI Director James Comey for releasing information regarding his interactions with the President through a friend, rather than giving it directly to the media.

Still, there was no doubt the veteran lawman made for a challenging adversary.

"It's my judgment that I was sacked because of the Russian Federation investigation", Comey said toward the end of more than two hours of testimony before the Senate intelligence committee. It really is an American thing", Comey said."They're just about their own advantage.

After Comey's testimony, Sessions forcefully rejected the implication that his recusal was inevitable due to some sort of impropriety on his part.
