(Studio: Tom Llamas) Report introduced.

(White House: Jonathan Karl) The declaration from President Trump that former FBI director James Comey's testimony is complete vindication for him examined; details given about their Oval Office meeting in February in which Comey says Trump asked him to let go of the investigation into national security director Michael Flynn & about "honest loyalty." [TRUMP - says no collusion, no obstruction; he's a leaker & some of the things he said were not true.] [At hearings, COMEY - says he felt something big was about to happen; that he took it as a "direction"; states he would speak under oath & he never asked Comey to "pledge allegiance."] [In response to Karl's question, TRUMP - denies asking Comey to let it go.] The House Intelligence Committee order for the White House to turn over any tapes & the Trump staff request Comey be investigated discussed.
