Trump responds to Comey's testimony, says, 'No collusion, no obstruction'

WASHINGTON (WLS) -- President Trump has reacted to fired FBI Director James Comey's dramatic testimony.

The president's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, plans to file a complaint asking the Justice Department to look into Comey's leaking of information.

There is now word the president may be questioned under oath.

President Trump's picking and choosing which parts of James Comey's testimony he says are true, and which are false.

"No collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker," said President Trump. "James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said. And some of the things he said just weren't true."

"As i used to tell juries, when i talked about a witness, you can't cherry pick it," said Comey in his testimony.

While under oath, the former FBI director accused the White House of lying, the president of asking for his loyalty, pressuring him to drop an investigation and firing him because of the Russia probe. On Friday, the president addressed those claims.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has come to Trump's defense. He dismissed the idea Republicans would be considering impeachment if Trump were a Democrat facing the same allegations.

"No. I don't think we would actually. I don't think that's at all the case," said Ryan on Thursday.

But a former Republican congressman, who was a big part of President Clinton's impeachment, called Ryan's bluff.

Bob Inglis tweeted at Ryan on Friday writing, "You know this isn't true. You know that you would be inquiring into impeachment if this were a Democrat."

While the president and his lawyer insist James Comey lied under oath, Sen. Jack Reed told CNN the president will get his turn.

"Trump will be deposed under oath by Special Counsel Mueller at some point," said Democratic Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island.

President Trump wouldn't give a direct answer about whether there are tapes of his conversations with James Comey, only saying that's something he'll maybe answer in the very near future.

When asked whether he'll testify under oath, the president said, "100 percent."
