Donald Trump Jr. May Have Accidentally Confirmed Part of Comey's Testimony

Feinstein calls for investigation of'all matters related to obstruction of justice

"My common sense told me, he's looking to get something in exchange for granting my request to stay in the job, ' said Mr Comey".

Trump also denied asking Comey for a pledge of loyalty during one of a string of private meetings.

Trump said in a tweet last month after Comey was sacked.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief also testified that Flynn was in legal jeopardy when Trump talked to him, but he wouldn't speculate if that amounted to obstruction of justice.

The president at a press conference in May said, "I respect the decision" to appoint Mueller as special counsel to lead the FBI investigation.

"He should voluntarily turn them over not only to the Senate Intelligence Committee, but to the special counsel", Collins told Brianna Keilar on CNN's State of the Union. "Lordy, I hope there are tapes".

"James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said".

On Friday, the leaders of the House of Representatives intelligence committee's investigation said they had asked Comey for his notes and memos about his discussions with Trump, and asked the White House to produce any recordings or memos of conversations between Trump and Comey.

"We know he's going to be a threat in a couple of weeks' time so it's good to play against him now". So for us it's going to be a torrid night. "This is a huge and exciting challenge for us".

Trump has hired Kasowitz to handle matters related to various investigations of Russian interference in the US president election, freeing his White House counsel to handle other government-related matters. Mueller will likely seek to determine whether anyone on the White House staff discussed what Trump was going to say to, or do with, Comey. "The President never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone", he said.

Former FBI director James Comey is sworn in during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Washington.

"I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, so I thought it really important to document", Comey said. Whether Trump's conduct rises to the level of an impeachable offense is a political question.

Following Comey's testimony, Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz sharply criticized Comey for leaking what he called "privileged communications" between the president and the then-FBI director.

The President also questioned the legality of Comey's leak - echoing his tweets from last week where he said he felt "complete vindication" after reading Comey's testimony.

Comey said the FBI knew Attorney General Jeff Sessions would recuse himself from the Russia investigation following reports that Sessions had met with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during the campaign.

Trump attacked Comey again on Twitter on Sunday morning, calling Comey a coward and suggesting his decision pass his recollection of private conversations with Trump to the press could be illegal.
