Trump Breaks Silence On Comey: 'WOW, Comey Is A Leaker!'

Trump Breaks Silence On Comey: 'WOW, Comey Is A Leaker!'

Dershowitz went on to say that even if we don't like the President having that authority, he has that power and you can't turn a Constitutional power into a criminal act.

The Russia questions are likely to make headlines again on Tuesday as the United States attorney general, Jeff Sessions, said late Saturday that he would appear before the Senate intelligence committee as it investigates Russian meddling in the presidential election.

Kasowitz also noted - correctly - that Comey had confirmed that he privately had told Trump at various times that he himself wasn't then under investigation by the FBI as part of its Russian Federation probe.

One of the many interesting revelations that came out of the questioning was that Comey acknowledged highly publicized memos containing notes from Comey's conversations with Trump while he was serving as Federal Bureau of Investigation director were deliberately leaked to the New York Times at Comey's request.

One of the "lies" Mr Trump says Mr Comey told was that he had "pressured him" into dropping an investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

On Friday, after explosive testimony from Comey in Congress repeated the claims that Trump pressured him over Flynn, Trump responded angrily, calling Comey a liar.

"I hardly know the man", Trump said at the press conference.

His lawyer said the President "never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr Comey stop investigating anyone".

TRUMP: 100 percent. I didn't say...

His hunch was correct, and the very next day former FBI director Bob Mueller was appointed to be a special counsel overseeing the investigation.

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press", tweeted Trump, following a New York Times report last month.

But Trump refused to answer.

Trump declined to say whether recordings of his conversations with Comey exist, saying he would have more to say on the matter soon. "Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'" Trump tweeted Sunday morning. Second, Comey said he was confused about why he was sacked.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you, Jon.

The committee want the material by 23 June.

During his Congressional briefing organised by the powerful Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday, Comey confessed that he leaked the information about his interaction with the USA president.
