Comey Testimony Hysterics Perfectly Summed Up in 5 Hilarious Cartoons

"I hardly know the man", Trump said. James Lankford, R-Okla., argued that the president's actions did not rise to the level of obstruction. Are you kidding me? Think of it: I hardly know the man, it doesn't make sense.

The Secret Service, which protects the president and his family, maintained a secret taping system for the White House in the eras of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.

President Donald Trump's private lawyer plans to file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey with the Senate judiciary committee and Justice Department Inspector General for leaking memos according to reports.

Speculation over the tapes is rooted in a particularly cryptic tweet from the USA president issued nearly a month ago, seeming to suggest he might hold recordings of the conversations. "No I didn't say that", Trump stated abruptly, taking questions after meeting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

Meanwhile, the Senate investigation into collusion with Russian Federation or obstruction of justice is extending to a Trump Cabinet member.

Trump tweeted early Friday that he feels vindicated by Comey's testimony.

President Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, today called James Comey the "deep state", referring to the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's scathing congressional testimony in which Comey admitted he leaked a memo on conversations he had with the president.

The recordings came for reference at Comey's testimony and his remarks about them, in response to a question, went viral on social media: "Lordy, I hope there are tapes". He painted Trump as a chief executive dismissive of the FBI's independence and made clear that he interpreted Trump's request to end an investigation into the former national security adviser as an order coming from the president.

He also said the testimony confirmed that Mr Trump was not under investigation as part of any probe into Russian political meddling. "No collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker", Trump told reporters in the White House rose garden Friday.

We'll also hear from Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), a top Trump critic, who said after the testimony that "the cloud hanging over this administration has just gotten a whole lot darker". Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath?

The way the Q&A unfolded, it certainly sounded as if Trump said he's prepared to testify under oath, which would raise the stakes on the investigation considerably.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Conaway, a Texas Republican, and Representative Adam Schiff of California, the top-ranking Democrat, announced after the news conference they have asked the White House to produce any recordings or memoranda that might exist of Trump's conversations with Comey.

"He is the deep state in Washington that is everything that is wrong".
