Donald Trump went full Donald Trump the day after fired FBI Director James Comey hearing this week gave damning testimony in the most eagerly anticipated U.S. congressional hearing in years. Today began with early-morning aggro tweets from the President. Then, taking reporter's questions at a press conference with the President of Romania, Trump accused Comey of lying under oath to Congress.
Glenn Thrush and Julie Hirschfeld Davis in the New York Times:
Mr. Trump also asserted that Mr. Comey’s comments on Thursday, in which the former F.B.I. director implied that the president fired him for pressing forward with the Russia investigation, had failed to prove any collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow nor any obstruction of justice.
“Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction,” Mr. Trump said in the White House Rose Garden, during a news conference with the visiting Romanian president, Klaus Iohannis.
“That was an excuse by the Democrats, who lost an election they shouldn’t have lost,” he said. “It was just an excuse, but we were very, very happy, and, frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said, and some of the things that he said just weren’t true.”
