Trump Hits Back At Comey and ‘lies’

US President Donald Trump has broken his Twitter silence after James Comey’s explosive testimony

US President Donald Trump has broken his Twitter silence after James Comey’s explosive testimony to appear to accuse the former FBI chief of perjury.

“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” he tweeted early on Friday.

Mr Comey told Congress under oath he believed he was fired to influence his investigation into the Trump campaign.

The ex-FBI boss led one of several Russia inquiries before he was sacked.

It is not clear what falsehoods Mr Trump is referring to but his lawyer has rejected as untrue several key parts of Mr Comey’s testimony.

Mr Comey, who testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, said the president pressured him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Mr Flynn was himself forced out after misleading the vice-president about conversations with Russia’s ambassador before Mr Trump took office.
