Trump commits to NATO mutual defense after hesitating

President Donald Trump says fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's testimony Thursday proved there was "no collusion, no obstruction" and that "he's a leaker".

President Donald Trump is welcoming Romanian President Klaus Iohannis to the White House for what press secretary Sean Spicer described as a "working visit" on Friday.

The president also recirculated another defense of his actions posted on Twitter by Alan M. Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor emeritus who has advised the Trump team on Middle Eastern policy.

The president specifically denied asking Comey for his "loyalty" early in Trump's term.

"I'm very glad that due to your strong leadership North Atlantic Treaty Organisation made a decision to go against terrorism", the Romanian president said.

House Intelligence Committee leaders also want to know if the tapes exist - and asked the White House to hand them over by June 23. I have no idea why Trump created the idea of taped conversations if he didn't have any tapes but I don't understand anything that this president does.

"In my opinion, we have to be very clear, very simple, very straightforward if we talk about Russian Federation, and with Russian Federation", he said. 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. "You can't just do what we've been doing in the past". "I'm not going to say, 'I want you to pledge allegiance'". Rather, Kasowitz said, Trump felt vindicated that Comey told him on several occasions that the president was not personally a focus of the investigation, an assertion Comey appeared to back up in his testimony Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication", Trump wrote.

Questioned about Comey's central claim that Trump told him to lay off Flynn, the president responded: "I didn't say that". Iohannis also said that it was in the interest of the U.S. to have a strong European union as a partner and to maintain the transatlantic link, which is at the basis of the Western civilization.

He added, "and WOW, Comey is a leaker", referring to the former director's admission that he had orchestrated the leak of the contents of a memo detailing Oval Office discussions with the president to The New York Times through a friend. During Comey's testimony, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes!" arguing that such recordings would back up his version of events. "He's everything that's wrong in Washington", Lewandowski said.

The two presidents "agreed on the importance of all countries implementing the agreements reached in Riyadh to fight terrorism, counter extremism, and stop the funding of terrorist groups", the White House said in a statement.
