House, Senate investigators request for Trump tapes, Comey memos

Trump, meanwhile, on Friday morning tweeted that Comey's testimony had provided him "complete and total vindication", while adding that Comey is a "leaker".

"I hardly know the man", Trump said.

Comey said authorized a friend to give his memos about his conversations with Trump to the press after he was sacked.

"When he tells you to do something, guess what?"

When asked if Trump was "trying to obstruct justice" in the meetings, Comey said that Robert Mueller, a former FBI director who was appointed to run the investigation, and the special counsel would make the determination.

Theresa May to form government in partnership with DUP
With the DUP providing the Conservatives a narrow, but crucial, majority in Parliament , it could have an outsized influence. At a press conference today, DUP leader Arlene Foster was vague about a working relationship with May's Conservatives.

"Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction; he's a leaker", Trump said of Comey and his testimony during a joint news conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis in the White House rose garden.

The Republican President stopped short of saying that Comey lied under oath at the hearing, which occurred a month after Trump fired him on May 9.

Echoing his attorneys and aides, Trump said the ex-FBI chief vindicated his claim that Comey told him on three occasions he was not under investigation over possible collusion with Russians who attempted to interfere with last year's election.

Republican Representative Mike Conaway and Democratic Representative Adam Schiff said they had also written to Don McGahn, the White House counsel, and asked him whether White House recordings or memos of Comey's conversations with Trump exist.If they do, they asked that copies of the materials be provided to the panel by June 23. On Friday he said he was "committing the United States to Article 5".

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

One senior backbencher told the BBC that she had appeared "contrite and genuine but not on her knees". She added: "The mandate given to us by the people will be used responsibly".

Trump also retweeted a comment from attorney Alan Dershowitz, who had written: "We should stop talking about obstruction of justice".

Comey testified Thursday on Capitol Hill that he believed Trump was trying to get him to drop an investigation of Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and that White House officials spread "lies, plain and simple" to cover up the reason behind Comey's dismissal.

Legal experts questioned whether Trump's private encounters with Comey could be considered privileged.Kasowitz plans to file a complaint early next week about Comey's disclosure of conversations with the president, a person close to the legal team said on Friday.He will file the complaint with the Justice Department's inspector general and also make a "submission" to the Senate's judiciary and intelligence committees about Comey's testimony.Comey's testimony added fuel to critics' accusations that Trump's actions around the Russian Federation probe might have amounted to obstruction of justice.Collins said she believed Trump did not understand the boundaries between the White House and FBI."It is totally wrong - I'll go beyond inappropriate - it is wrong for the president of the United States to tell or imply to an FBI director that an investigation should not go forward", she told CNN.

Kasowitz also maintained that the testimony made clear that Trump "never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone".

Trump's claim of vindication from Comey's testimony is groundless.
