WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says fired FBI director James Comey’s testimony Thursday proved there was “no collusion, no obstruction” and that “he’s a leaker.”
Trump also says Comey confirmed a lot of what Trump had claimed about their interactions, though he says other parts of Comey’s testimony “just weren’t true.”
Trump won’t rule out his previous claim that there may be tapes of his conversations with Comey.
He says, “Well, I’ll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future.”

Trump also says he’s “100 percent” willing to testify under oath about his interactions with fired FBI director James Comey.
Trump insists that Comey lied in some parts of the testimony he gave Thursday to the Senate intelligence committee. Comey testified under oath.
Trump says that he never asked Comey for a pledge of loyalty and never told Comey he hoped the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn would go away.
He says nobody would ask a man he hardly knew to pledge loyalty to him.
