"His goal is to manipulate media, manipulate the press. he's everything that's wrong in Washington", Lewandowski said. Following the reports, the White House declined to say whether the president still had confidence in the attorney general.

The investigations, by the FBI and Congress, into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian operatives have consumed the White House and distracted the president and lawmakers from his governing agenda. US intelligence agencies have said Russian Federation stole private emails and other documents from Democrats and released them publicly past year to embarrass Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and aid Trump.

Particularly one during which Comey claimed Mr. Trump asked him to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Between President Trump and Jim Comey, Senator Durbin said Comey wins the battle of trustworthiness.

"Mister Comey has now admitted that he is one of these leakers", said Marc Kasowitz, President Trump's attorney.

Norm Eisen, who was special counsel for ethics in the Obama White House, said on Twitter the complaint was an "abuse of process" and that he and others would be filing a defense of Comey.

Illinois' senior USA senator said Thursday's testimony by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey was one bad day for President Trump.

Trump agreed Wednesday not to directly engage on Comey, and by the time the ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director took the witness stand, tweeting "was not something he was considering", one senior White House official said.

On Thursday, Comey spoke candidly for nearly three hours, accusing President Trump and his administration of defamation and lies.

President Donald Trump's private lawyer will reportedly file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey after Comey said Thursday he orchestrated the leak of a memo he wrote after talking with Trump.

For instance, Comey suggested that, when it came to Russia-related investigations, Sessions was "inevitably going to recuse himself" for reasons Comey couldn't share publicly.
