House intelligence panel demands any tapes from Trump, memos from Comey

During a news conference Friday, Trump said he'd have more information related to whether tapes exist at a later date.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch demanded Comey call the probe into then Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a "matter" instead of a criminal investigation...and he didn't push back.

"Some of the things that he said just weren't true", added the president who, when asked if he would be willing to speak under oath to special prosecutor Robert Mueller about his version of the encounters, Trump responded: "100 percent".

In his first press conference since Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Trump told reporters he was "100 percent" willing to give a sworn testimony to the special counsel now overseeing the FBI's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

A tape could help settle whether who is telling the truth, Trump, or Comey.

A few days after Comey was sacked, Trump warned via Twitter that "Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" "I'm not going to say 'I want you to pledge allegiance, '" he said. But yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction.

'I hardly know the man. Earlier Friday, he retweeted a post from Alan Dershowitz, a prominent lawyer and Harvard professor, who said there was "no plausible case" for obstruction of justice and that "we must distinguish crimes from" political "sins". Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath? I hardly know the man, it doesn't make sense'.

When reporters pressed him, he said he would disclose that "in a very short period of time". "You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer".

After weeks of buildup, former FBI Director James Comey finally delivered his testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Community.

The Maine Republican said Comey was wrong to leak his private conversation with the president.

Comey also said Trump and his administration tried to "defame" him by spreading "lies, plain and simple", about his firing.

The New York Times February report that alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian official was mostly false.

There's your "smoking gun", folks.

Some top Democrats - including Sens.

The way the Q&A unfolded, it certainly sounded as if Trump said he's prepared to testify under oath, which would raise the stakes on the investigation considerably.

A few hours after the press conference, Reps.
