Trump calls former FBI Director James Comey's actions 'cowardly' in tweet

President Donald Trump's private lawyer plans to file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey with the Senate judiciary committee and Justice Department Inspector General for leaking memos according to reports.

In his next Twitter posting, Trump went after Comey. In his hearing, Comey outlined out how Trump had asked him to drop the investigation into his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. "Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction", Mr Trump said. That's not what the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief did.

As for those tapes Trump claims he has, Congressional investigators said they want them if they, in fact, exist.

When Comey was sacked, the White House alluded to the director's failure to move forward with the investigation of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

During his testimony, Comey was asked by Sen.

Mr Kasowitz plans to file a complaint early next week about Mr Comey's disclosure of conversations with the President, a person close to the legal team said on Friday.

Marc Kasowitz said on Thursday that the president never sought to impede the investigation into possible Russian interference in the United States election and that Mr Comey's leaks should be investigated. In regard to Comey, respondents appeared to be less decisive, with 12 percent having a "very favorable" opinion of the former official, and 16 percent - "very unfavorable".

During Thursday's hearing, Donald Trump was unusually silent on social media, even as Mr Comey accused his administration of spreading lies.

Comey also said he thinks Trump fired him over the Russian Federation investigation. Trump agreed and tweeted: "Good times".

But Trump's denunciations of Comey have only fueled demands that the president - who has denied asking for loyalty or urging that the investigation be shelved ─ give his account under oath.

The House intelligence committee sent a letter to the White House demanding it inform the panel whether any tapes exist and turn them over by June 23.

In her interview on Sunday, Collins added that she would support a subpoena being issued if the White House stonewalled, though she said such an order would likely come from special counsel Robert Mueller and not from the Senate committee.

Dan Rather, speaking on MSNBC, said the President was at the point where he was going have to say: "I am not a liar". Sessions, whose contacts with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.

"Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath?"
