Trump: James Comey comments clear me of allegations

By Staff Reporter

President Donald Trump is claiming that fired FBI director James Comey's testimony to Congress represents "total and complete vindication" in the Russia case.

In a tweet, the US president said: "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication ... and WOW, Comey is a leaker."

Trump was referring to Mr Comey's revelation that he had passed on to a friend a written memo he had made detailing a meeting with the president at the White House, and had asked a friend to give it to a reporter for the New York Times.

Trump's personal lawyer is planning to file a complaint against Comey for doing so.
