US President Donald Trump says he is “100%” willing to speak under oath about his conversations with ex‑FBI chief James Comey.

Speaking at the White House, he denied having asked for Comey’s loyalty or for an inquiry into his former national security adviser to be dropped.

Trump says James Comey confirmed a lot of what he said, and some of the things he said just were not true.

Meanwhile, a congressional panel asked for any tapes of their conversations.

Comey says Trump fired him because of his investigation into whether the president or his campaign officials colluded with an alleged Kremlin plot to sway last year’s US presidential election in favour of Trump.

Yesterday, the former FBI chief testified to one of several congressional committees that is also looking into the Russia claims.

He says the president had pressured him to drop a probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whom Trump fired for misleading the White House over Flynn's contacts with Moscow's ambassador.
