Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he was never briefed on Russian Federation probe

In his testimony last week, Comey said he and Trump had a one-on-one meeting in the Oval Office on February 14 about the investigation into the former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

In sworn testimony to the Senate on Thursday, Comey painted Trump as untrustworthy and admitted he asked a "friend", identified as a Columbia University law professor, to release a memo of his conversations with the president to the press.

Beneath an nearly cloudless sky in the Rose Garden Friday, President Trump accused James Comey of lying under oath before Congress the day before and said he was "100 percent" prepared to make that case himself to the special counsel heading the Russian Federation probe.

On "Shepard Smith Reporting", Chris Wallace pointed out that Trump has a very tough lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, who might not want that testimony to happen.

The president had said Comey's testimony vindicates his assertion that Trump himself was not personally under the investigation.

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", Comey had said on Thursday.

"One hundred per cent", Mr Trump said.

The reporter also asked if there were tapes of Comey's conversations with the president. The president rebutted that exchange, saying it made "no sense" because "I hardly know the man".

"The suggestion that I participated in any collusion, that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government, or hurt this country which I have served with honor for 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie", Sessions said.

Testifying at a Senate hearing early today, Australian time, he vowed to defend his honour "against scurrilous and false allegations".

Trump also said that Comey confirmed a lot of what he had claimed about their interactions, though he says other parts of Comey's testimony " just weren't true".

Trump also said he would soon speak about the existence of recordings between himself and Comey in a "fairly short period of time", before telling the press they were going to be "very disappointed" by the answer. Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath?

"I think he abused power", said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

The president was also asked if he would abide by Article 5 of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation considering the threat Eastern European nations still sense from Russian Federation.

The furor that resulted from Comey's firing led to the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel, to oversee the Russian Federation investigation. After he was sacked, Comey said a threatening Trump tweet that hinted there were secret tapes of their conversations prompted him to ask a friend, Daniel Richman, to share the content of the memos with the New York Times.
