Friday marked the first time Trump’s taken questions from reporters since Comey’s June 8 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. When asked if he’d be willing to testify under oath regarding his conversation with former FBI Director James Comey, his answer was:

“One hundred percent.”

But according to CNN, he’s still denying the legitimacy of Comey’s receipts, which reportedly document Trump asking him to call off the FBI’s Flynn investigation.

“I didn’t say that,” Trump insisted, adding (in reference to claims made of him requesting Comey’s loyalty), “There would be nothing wrong if I did say it.”

Important to note that just hours before the brief press conference, Trump took to Twitter to accuse Comey of lying under oath.

“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” he tweeted. As we mentioned earlier, he then thanked Fox and Friends for their “great reporting.”

So what about those tapes? Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t seem we’ll have confirmation of their existence any time soon. “I’ll tell you about that sometime in the very near future,” Trump said during Friday’s press conference. “I’m not hinting anything. I will tell you over a very short period of time.”

As CNN notes, “Trump’s comment tracks with Republican talking points about the hearing, where the Republican National Committee and White House urged surrogates to emphasize the fact that Comey clearly said the President was never an explicit subject of the Russia probe during his time at the FBI.”

Is this over yet?
