Trump's offer to testify heightens the drama of his standoff with Comey, who told senators that Trump had demanded his personal loyalty and had pressured him to drop a counterintelligence investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
President Donald Trump declined to say whether there are recorded conversations of his meetings with James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he fired, telling reporters that he may reveal whether such tapes exist "in the very near future".
On the witness's claim that Mr Trump asked him over dinner for his loyalty, Mr Kasowitz said: "The President never told Mr Comey 'I need loyalty, I expect loyalty, ' in form or substance".
"I didn't say that", Trump said at a joint press conference alongside the president of Romania.
"But in the meantime, no collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker, but we want to get back to running out great country...."
He said he would be happy to speak to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating allegations that Russian Federation interfered with the election and colluded with Trump's campaign.
"I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter", Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to a news report.
Trump was also asked if recordings exist of his conversations with Comey, as he has hinted in tweets in the past.
Mr Flynn was himself forced out after misleading the vice-president about conversations with Russia's ambassador before Mr Trump took office.
