According to the contemporaneous notes Comey says he wrote after each meeting and conversation he had with Trump, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director wrote that Trump said that he couldn't have been recorded in a video with two sex workers urinating on a hotel bed where the Obamas once slept because he hadn't even slept in the room.
"Our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country".
In his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee a year ago, Comey said he believes the President asked him to "drop any investigation of Flynn", a reference to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Asked whether he believed Mr Trump should be impeached, Mr Comey replied, "I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly". I mean, that's- that mystified me even after President Trump became president 'cause I discovered that he wouldn't criticize him even in private, which- I can understand a president making a geopolitical decision that, "I ought not to criticize an adversary country's leader for some reason publicly".
Comey says he pushed back, but that Lynch was firm: "Just call it a matter", she said.
"There was material that I knew someday, when it's declassified, and I thought that would be decades in the future, would cause historians to wonder, "Hmm, was there some unusual business goin" on there?" Just another of his many lies.

Comey detail about a "dossier" containing raw intelligence on Trump's connections with Russians.
"I started to tell him about the allegation was that he had been involved with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow in 2013 during a visit for the Miss Universe pageant and that the Russians had filmed the episode", Comey told Stephanopoulos.
"The conversation, to my surprise, moved into a PR conversation about how the Trump team would position this and what they could say about this", Comey says.
"Look, it's been very clear that James Comey is a self-admitted leaker. But the point of it is I knew there was material that might hit the public square any moment, that would allow people to argue powerfully that there was monkey business going on".
Mr Comey, who likened the "leadership culture" of the Trump administration to that of a "mob boss", also said truth was not a "high value" for the president.
Comey also said that when Trump said in a later meeting the two discussed an investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's first choice to be national security adviser, and his contacts with Russian. "It would depend. upon other things that reflected on his intent". In a written statement to the committee, Comey claimed that Trump had asked him for "loyalty".
A big topic of discussion in Comey's interview was his effect on the 2016 presidential campaign.
Comey offered a blunt assessment of a conversation with Trump on February 14, 2017, during which Comey maintains the president said of an investigation the FBI was conducting into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, "I hope you can let it go".
