Trump says he ‘100 percent’ would speak under oath on Comey conversations

Trump says he ‘100 percent’ would speak under oath on Comey conversations, Washington Examiner, Josh Siegel, June 9, 2017

President Trump said Friday that he would “100 percent” be willing to testify under oath that he never told former FBI Director James Comey that he “hoped” Comey would drop the bureau’s investigation of former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

In a news conference in the Rose Garden with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, Trump also said he would be “glad” to tell his side of the story to special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I didn’t say that,” Trump said when asked whether he asked Comey to drop the investigation of Flynn. “I will tell you, I didn’t say that. And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it, according to everybody that I’ve read today, but I did not say that.”

Trump also denied Comey’s account that the president had asked his former FBI director to pledge loyalty.

“I hardly know the man,” Trump said of Comey. “Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance? Who would do that?”
