Senator Chuck Schumer spoofs Donald Trump's sad need for approval

House and Senate investigators fired off a series of requests after former FBI Director James Comey's testimony, seeking memos of his private discussions with President Donald Trump and any records the White House kept of their discussion - including audio recordings.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said he he kept notes on his meetings with the president because he was concerned Trump might lie about the nature of their conversations.

Trump flatly denied Comey's testimony that the president asked him to let go of an investigation into Flynn - "I didn't say that" - and denied the former director's claim that Trump asked him for a pledge of personal loyalty.

"We also were aware of facts that I can't discuss in an open setting that would make (Sessions') continued engagement in a Russia-related investigation problematic, " Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday.

Lee also said he had concerns about Comey's decision to give memos about his conversations with Trump to a friend, who shared them with The New York Times.

He added: "Mr. Comey admitted that he leaked to friends of his purported memos of those privileged conversations, one of which he testified was classified".

Tapes could resolve the dispute, but Trump against refused to say whether they exist, telling reporters he would do so "maybe sometime in the very near future".

Comey's testimony added fuel to critics' accusations that Trump's actions around the Russian Federation probe might have amounted to obstruction of justice. A source familiar with the matter said Richman has been in touch with Senate judiciary through special counsel Bob Mueller's office, and that there will be movement after the weekend.

Trump stopped short of saying that Comey lied under oath.

While Trump's attorney issued a statement defending Trump and attacking Comey for the leak, and Trump's son Don Jr. tweeted throughout the hearing, the president himself remained silent on the subject and did not tweet all day.

Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii fired back at Trump on Twitter Friday morning, saying the president appeared to be accusing Comey of a serious crime: lying to Congress.

"I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you, Jon", Trump responded.

Comey's testimony was the most eagerly anticipated U.S. congressional hearing in years.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, delivered a scathing indictment of the president on Thursday at a congressional hearing in which he accused Trump of trying to block the investigation into Flynn.
