He is Senate majority whip, making him the second-ranking Republican in the chamber.

Lawmakers from both parties reprimanded Trump for his actions, which included shifting explanations from the White House for Comey's dismissal and an ominous tweet by Trump that warned Comey against leaks to the press because Trump may have "tapes" of their conversations.

President Trump has faced a backlash for sacking Mr Comey, who had been investigating alleged Russian meddling in the USA election.

Sources told ABC News that Trump posed the question to Comey a couple of times during a dinner in January and Comey would not promise such a thing to the new president, only that he would be honest.

Trump is considering 11 people to replace Comey, a White House official said. "It used to be the message not just of the White House, but of America". Trump told NBC's Lester Holt Thursday that Comey provided him during the dinner with an assurance that the president was not under investigation. Trump fired Comey this week.

Rosenstein, less than a month into the job, wrote the memo critical of former FBI Director James Comey that President Donald Trump cited in firing Comey Tuesday.

"I think the president looked at the situation and made a decision that the president can make", said Paul Ryan. Others are expected to interview Saturday with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein. Trump told NBC on Thursday that he was looking for an excuse to fire Comey, who was leading an investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

"I assume you're referring to his tweet", Spicer said, when asked if Trump had recorded his conversations with Comey.

"I think the process is going to go quickly because nearly all of them are very well known".

Spicer also addressed Trump's Twitter posts suggesting that "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with flawless accuracy".

In a statement, Durbin said that what he characterised as Trump's admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation probe was "dangerously close to obstruction of justice". One solution, he said, is "we don't have press conferences". According to Fox News, a conservative source, the day before he was sacked, Comey met with the Republican and Democrat Senators on the Senate intelligence committee, Senators Richard Burr and Mark Warner.

Asked at the briefing Friday whether Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to pledge his loyalty, Mr. Spicer responded: "No".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump's tweet about the tapes "speaks for itself", when pressed for details.
