Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey said that President Donald Trump did not ask him to drop his probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 usa election.
But Mr Trump insisted during a press conference with Romania's President Klaus Werner Iohannis that Mr Comey lied in some parts of the testimony he gave to the Senate intelligence committee, and asserted that nothing in his testimony showed collusion with Russian Federation or obstruction of justice.
He also said he did not ask Comey to drop his probe of Trump's former national security adviser, retired Gen. Michael Flynn, who resigned his post after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about conversations with Russian officials.
Trump's personal legal team, led by attorney Marc Kasowitz, is said to be focusing the complaint on Comey's disclosure during his appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he asked a professor at Columbia University law school to pass on memos he wrote about his private interactions with Trump to a reporter.
However, Comey's blistering testimony painted Trump as a liar, with Comey charging that the Trump administration tried to defame him after he was sacked from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and noting that he kept diligent notes of his interactions with Trump because he didn't trust the President to tell the truth.
