President Donald Trump finally broke his Twitter silence Friday morning, following the testimony by former FBI Director James Comey to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Trump's Twitter feed remained surprisingly quiet throughout Comey's testimony accusing the administration of spreading lies Thursday. But, a day after the closely watched hearing, Trump struck back with an early morning tweet:
The president's personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, will file a complaint with the Department of Justice's inspector general and the Senate judiciary committee over Comey's declaration that he orchestrated the leaks of unclassified memos to major news outlets with an acquaintance.
In his testimony, Comey detailed months of distrust of the president and claims Trump had fired him to interfere with the probe of Russia's ties to the Trump campaign.
"There should be no fuzz on this. The Russians interfered," Comey stated firmly during testimony. "That happened. It's about as un-fake as you can possibly get."
Trump has said Russia is a "ruse" and calls the investigation into the matter a "witch hunt."
“I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt, and there is no collusion between — certainly myself and my campaign, but I can only speak for myself and the Russians. Zero,” Trump said at a joint news conference on May 18. “Believe me, there’s no collusion.”
