President Trump speaks with reporters during visit by Romanian leader

"I didn't say that", Trump said.

"Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction", Trump said. Karl then asked if the president if he's willing to "speak under oath to give your version of these events?"

'James Comey said he reviewed the testimony with the special counsel and you wonder if, it's unusual to me - and I've done a lot of cases for 40 years of practicing law nearly, and at the highest levels of the Supreme Court - that you have a situation, I think this is unprecedented, where the testimony was reviewed, ' Sekulow stated.

Comey testified he kept notes after meeting with Trump because "I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, and so I thought it really important to document".

"You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry". Comey said that Trump asked him specifically whether he could drop the investigation with respect to Flynn, the former national security adviser whom Trump fired for withholding information about his contacts with foreign governments.

Comey said during his testimony that he asked a friend to release contents of the memos he'd written about his conversations with the president to a reporter.

"I didn't say that".

Technically, Comey did more than "not directly dispute" Trump's claims.

"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication", Trump tweeted, "and WOW, Comey is a leaker!".

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.

"WOW, Comey is a leaker!" Trump wrote at 6:10 a.m. "Whether he obstructed justice remains for the facts to come forward".

Finally, we'll have analysis of the week in Washington from our political panel.

Kasowitz quickly endorsed Comey's acknowledgment of Trump's statement that he had told the president three times he was not a target of any FBI investigation, and he said Trump felt vindicated.

But the self-imposed silence didn't last.

The president also said he would not rule out his previous claims that there may be tapes of the conversation with Comey and told reporters, "Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future".

James Comey has a hard-earned reputation for honesty; written records of the interactions in question; and colleagues in the Federal Bureau of Investigation who heard him describe those interactions shortly after they transpired. He did say, under oath, that you told him to let the Flynn - you said you hoped the Flynn investigation, you could let - he could let go.

Trump's legal team plans to file a complaint regarding the "leak" with the Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General early next week, a source close to the legal team tells Newsweek.

Under oath, Comey repeatedly called Trump a liar. Mueller's current appointment authority doesn't cover investigation of the FBI or its former director. Schumer on Sunday also said he would like to clear up the matter of whether Trump does indeed have tapes of his conversations with Comey, as the president has suggested.

Mr Comey says Mr Trump fired him because of his Russian Federation inquiry.
