Trump accuses Comey of cowardice over 'leaks'

Now we know, thanks to former FBI Director James Comey's testimony last week, that President Trump was not a target of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. This time, he blasted "fake news" for failing to report on the country's "great economic news" since he was elected president.

According to Comey's sworn testimony, Trump said, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting [former National Security Adviser Michael] Flynn go".

The president did not provide any evidence to back up his claim about more leaks from Comey, whom he fired on May 9.

In an angry early-morning tweet from his New Jersey golf club, the embattled president questioned Comey's character and whether he had broken the law in revealing their conversations.

He said he didn't return a third call Trump placed after taking office.

Mr Comey's sacking is unlikely to provide the specific grounds for any impeachment of Mr Trump. "I think he's proven himself to be a dishonest man of bad character", he added, meaning Comey if you weren't sure.

Jay Sekulow has been the chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice since 1990, focusing on free speech and religious liberty cases. "I didn't say that", Trump said at the presser on Friday.

Trump tweeted last month that Comey "better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press".

"He should give a straight yes or no to the question of whether or not the tapes exist".

The president's outside legal team is being led by a longtime Trump attorney, Marc Kasowitz. His firing brought him out of the shadows and into the open "resistance" to the president. And she says the president should voluntarily hand them over to the Senate Intelligence committee and the special counsel.

Mr Comey alleges that Mr Trump then privately asked him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's contacts with Russian Federation.

"And of course, he said he would testify".

Sekulow reiterated on Sunday, "He has made the statement of what he would do as far as testimony if that's necessary".

Trump, by his own account, fired Comey because of the investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and agents of the Russian government.

"I thought it shows a lot of cowardice", Dershowitz said. "Let's let the special investigation take its course and end".
