"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication", Trump wrote, adding, "and WOW, Comey is a leaker!" Trump tweeted in his first comments since Comey appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

His intention, Comey said, was to get that information out to the public and set the wheels in motion for a special counsel to be appointed to look into the matter.
