Trump accuses Comey of lying under oath in fiery news conference

Share

No the president, who I want to point out is a colossal dumbass liar that will say anything because he doesn't give a shit about anyone, responded that the public will be disappointed with his answer and we all know why: He's a fucking liar and a awful person! and, there is no there, there! However, he did fire off a tweet at daybreak on Friday, asserting that Comey's testimony represents "total and complete vindication" in the Russian Federation case.

Trump was referring to Comey's revelation that he had passed on to a friend a written memo he'd made detailing a meeting with Trump at the White House - and had asked a friend to give it to a reporter for the New York Times.

"Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction", Trump said. And, thanks to his rush to defend himself, it's now fair to ask whether the president is acknowledging that he told Comey to back off Flynn, 24 hours after Trump's lawyer denied it.

In nearly three hours of sworn testimony, Comey also said he orchestrated a leak to a New York Times reporter of a memo describing his conversations with Trump in the hope that it would prompt the appointment of a special counsel. I mean, I will tell you I didn't say that. "I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time", he said.

He was later surprised when Trump suggested he had taped the conversations.

Thursday's hearing brought Washington and other parts of the country to a standstill as Americans sat glued to their screens.

Stop funding terror, teaching hate: Trump to Qatar
It is a crucial hub for USA military operations in the Middle East , especially the battle against the Islamic State group. Also named were Doha-based Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Qatari-funded charities.

The president is tweeting, and perhaps tweeting himself into more trouble, about James B. Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he fired in May.

In an Oval Office tete-a-tete the following month, Comey said Trump pressed him to drop the FBI investigation into Flynn, who had been fired for lying to the vice president about unreported conversations with the Russian ambassador.

Washington, Jun 9 The US Justice Department has said Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the probe into Russia's attempt to influence the 2016 election only because of his involvement in Donald Trump's campaign. "I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning".

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", Comey said at the hearing.

"My judgment was I need to get that out into the public square", Comey said.

Lawmakers also are asking that Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia, turn over memos that Comey took of his conversations with Trump.

Standard & Poor's said Wednesday it has lowered its long-term rating on Qatar one notch to AA-, its fourth-highest level. Most of Qatar's gas exports go to Asia via sea - 72 percent according to the U.S.

"I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, so I thought it really important to document", he said.

On Thursday, Trump let his communications team - and his personal lawyer - reply to Comey's unflattering portrayals.

Meanwhile, the intelligence committee asked White House Counsel Don McGahn in a letter whether any tape recordings or memos of the conversations exist now, or had existed in the past.

He also claimed that he "hardly" knows Comey. The committee gave Comey and McGahn until June 23 to comply.

Many Democrats still blame Comey for Clinton's loss, leading Trump to apparently believe they would applaud him for firing Comey.
