President Trump survived the pounding by Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday but had better keep his helmet and flak-jacket close. "I understood this to be my recollection recorded of my conversation with the president", he said.
"I was honestly concerned he might lie about the nature of our meeting, so I thought it important to document", he said.
When a Senate member asked Comey, "Is there any kind of memorandum issued from the attorney general to the Federal Bureau of Investigation outlining the parameters of his recusal?" the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director answered, "Not that I'm aware of".
However, immediately after making this assertion, Kasowitz said a president's expectation of loyalty from those serving him is normal and appropriate.
The White House angrily denounced that charge.
Trump could face even more problems over the coming months if the stream of details leaking out about the Russian Federation investigation continues to grab the spotlight at a time when the White House wants to focus on priorities such as rolling back the Obamacare healthcare law and overhauling the tax code.

Pritam gave fantastic music for it whereas Amit Mishra and Arijit Singh sounds quite funky as per the song's demand. Like first number of the movie this one too is expected to manage a special space in hearts of million.
Comey underlined these points as he answered senators' questions in the almost three-hour hearing Thursday, adding that he took meticulous notes after every interaction with Trump because Comey "was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of" their meeting.
Comey justified this decision in part because he hoped his memos would precipitate the appointment of a special prosecutor to take over the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign.
Although there is no evidence that anyone from Mr Trump's circle knew about Russia's efforts, the non-stop stream of revelations has sparked accusations of a cover-up. "If the election were on October 27, I would be your president", Clinton said last month.
"The president feels completely vindicated", said Kasowitz, who took no questions from reporters at the Press Club.
One of Trump Jr.'s biggest gripes was when Comey leaked his own private memos to the press. "I think Comey said let me do this, so he could have documentation and proof so Trump can't go back and say oh I didn't say that", Barkley said.
Comey, who was sacked from his post as the FBI Director almost a month ago, testified on Thursday over the allegations that Trump asked him to drop the ongoing investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump administration, as well as former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn.

Saudi Arabia is closing its border with Qatar, leaving citizens of the peninsula nation scrambling for food and supplies. As the leading power in the Middle East, the US relies on a web of basing access that enables its power projection.
"On May the ninth, when I learned that I was sacked, for that reason, I immediately came home as a private citizen", he said. The Comey hearing was an episode in a show that isn't going to be canceled for a good long while. Indeed, he strengthened the case that Trump should be investigated. Said the president: "When I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, "You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won".
Wallace, who also hosts Fox News Sunday, noted that Comey repeatedly "called the president a liar" and cited that character flaw for why he had begun taking notes of their conversations. "We know how to fight, and we will never give up".
But into the void stepped Donald Trump, Jr., who's now running his father's businesses and whose own feed offers an instructive glimpse into the conservative sphere's take on the Comey hearing.
Democrats have tried to talk down the prospect of impeachment. Comey, meanwhile, testified that he never once initiated a conversation with the president.
Some saw Rubio as a potential maverick in the Intelligence Committee's investigation, and on Wednesday he was forceful in trying to get Trump's top intelligence advisers to confirm The Washington Post's report that the president had asked them to intervene with Comey to get him to drop the Flynn investigation.
