Friday's HOT MIC

I hardly know the man.

In a press conference today, President Donald Trump accused former FBI Director James Comey of lying under oath. He said he would never ask Comey to pledge loyalty.

I hardly know the man. I'm not going to ask you to pledge allegiance. Who would do that? Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath.

CNBC's Jacob Pramuk has more.

President Donald Trump on Friday forcefully accused former FBI Director James Comey of lying under oath in a series of defiant responses.

The president said he would "be glad" to state his case to Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing a broad investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Trump abruptly fired Comey last month as he oversaw that FBI investigation, prompting questions about whether he tried to impede the probe.

"Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker," Trump said of Comey at a White House press conference, saying he wants to "get back to running our great country."
