Comey told the Senate of multiple conversations alone with the president, during which he said Trump pressed him to show "loyalty", to back off on the FBI investigation of aide Michael Flynn and to disclose that Trump himself was not under investigation as the FBI probed Russian interference in the election and ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
"Your involvement makes so many nations aware of the fact that we have to share the burden in NATO", Iohannis said to Trump during the news conference. He did testify that Trump told him on January 26 that he expected loyalty from the Federal Bureau of Investigation director and urged him to drop the probe into Flynn the next month.
"No collusion, no obstruction he's a leaker".
His failure to mention the rule, which says that an attack on one North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member means an attack on all, threw into doubt the US's decades-long guarantee that it would back Europe against Russian aggression. The complaint will take issue with Comey's revelation that he asked a friend to pass along to a reporter notes he took of his private conversations with the president. This is arguably the most moonwalking-ass administration ever in the history of president-ing, so I don't believe anything that the president says.
"I'm not hinting at anything", Trump said, but then he teased, "You'll be very disappointed". Iohannis also said that it was in the interest of the United States to have a strong European union as a partner and to maintain the transatlantic link, which is at the basis of the Western civilization. Karl asked if the President would be willing to testify under oath to this. Just an hour or two earlier, Tillerson had called on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, and Bahrain "to ease the blockade", which he said had "humanitarian consequences" and was "hindering" military operations (Qatar hosts the US's Central Command and its biggest military airbase in the region). "We ask Qatar and other nations in the region to do more, and do it faster..."

"Having to reaffirm something by the very nature of being here and speaking at a ceremony about it is nearly laughable", Spicer said.
That could serve to rebut Comey's testimony.

The remarks were a defiant response from Trump, who had remained uncharacteristically silent on social media during Comey's blockbuster day of testimony Thursday, as the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief laid out an account that strongly suggested the president's private exchanges with him had been an attempt to obstruct justice. But if Trump were to lie under oath, and Mueller and his team were able to prove that subsequently, it would constitute perjury.
