Trump accuses ex-FBI director of cowardice over 'leaks'

When Trump was asked whether he himself would be willing to testify under oath, he said "100%".

Comey on Thursday told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he was sacked by Trump in May over his handling of alleged Russian meddling in the USA election and possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Mr Comey claimed Mr Trump told him, "I expect loyalty".

Asked by a reporter if he had told Comey to drop a Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into former top aide Michael Flynn, Trump said, "I didn't say that". "There's no ambiguity in it, there's no, 'Hey, I'm hoping, '" 39-year-0ld Mr Trump said.

Taking to Twitter, Mr Trump questioned whether Mr Comey's leaking of information to a journalist was illegal.

"Nobody would ask a man he hardly knew to pledge loyalty to him", he said.

Mr Trump tweeted earlier on Friday he felt "complete vindication" after the hearing. "I mean, I will tell you I didn't say that".

Trump added that, "You're going to be very disappointed" with his answer - not saying either way whether the tapes existed or not.

While Comey said Trump had lied about him, Trump didn't use that exact terminology in return on Friday.

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.

Trump continued to be coy about the possibility of there being recordings of his conversations with Comey, which he has suggested previously.

Meanwhile, lawmakers are asking the White House to turn over any taped conversations between Trump and Comey. Daniel Richman, a Columbia University professor, was also asked by a bipartisan group of members of the Senate judiciary committee to turn over all copies of memos he possesses.

Comey told the Senate panel he would urge the release of any recording of his conversations with the president.

Trump Jr. specifically said on the air, "When he tells you to do something, guess what?"

"First of all, Comey was very clear that the memo that he wrote was intentionally written in unclassified form so that it would not be bound up in classification rules", Wittes said.

He hinted that there are no tapes of their conversations, contrary to a suggestion in a tweet he issued shortly after firing Comey.
