Trump blasts Comey as a 'leaker' in first tweet since testimony

Share

Earlier, a reporter asked about the president's tweet on Friday that said, "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker!" "I think he's proven himself to be a dishonest man of bad character", Trump Jr said.

A reporter asked the president about Comey's assertion that Trump told him "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go", referring to the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation.

As Donald Trump Jr, left, tried to back up his father's version of events, he seemed to agree with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director's instead.

When asked why Comey's testimony vindicated the president when it was his words versus Comey's, Trump said, "No collusion, no obstruction". "I'm not going to say 'I want you to pledge allegiance.' Who would do that?"

Houston Astros place ace Dallas Keuchel on disabled list again
Trailing 7-1 after 4 1/2 innings, the Royals appeared poised to drop their third straight game and fall to nine games under.500. Keuchel leads both lists and he was looking to become the fifth pitcher since 1987 to start the season with a 10-0 record.

After his dismissal, Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee, he told a friend about his memos and asked him to leak the information about them to reporters. "Your involvement made so many nations conscious of the fact that we have to share the burden inside North Atlantic Treaty Organisation". Karl specifically cited Comey's claim that Trump told him in the Oval Office that he "hoped" Comey could let the Flynn investigation go.

Comey testified at a Senate hearing that he made memos after speaking to Trump on several occasions because he feared the president would lie about them.

Trump dodged questions at a news conference about whether, as he's hinted, the conversations with Comey were taped.

Trump fired Comey in May, saying "this Russian Federation thing" was on his mind when he chose to dismiss the head of the nation's top law enforcement agency while Comey was leading its probe into Russia's alleged meddling in last year's election.

"And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it according to everybody that I read today, but I did not say that".

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", he said. "That's another thing he said", the reporter asked. The House intelligence committee is seeking any tapes of the conversations.

Trump also took a question about the United States' commitment to NATO, saying the U.S.is committed to Article 5, the NATO policy of "collective defense" - meaning, if one NATO country is attacked, it is considered an attack against all.
