When asked whether the president would be willing to speak under oath to his version of those events, Trump said, "100 percent".
Mr Comey maintains that as a private citizen, he saw no problem supplying some segments of his testimony in advance to the New York Times.
President Donald Trump evaded a direct question about whether he has tapes of his conversations with fired FBI DirectorJames Comey and toyed with the press about when he'd confirm it.
Almost 20 million USA television viewers tuned in to the explosive testimony.
The New York City federal prosecutor who expected to remain on the job when Mr Trump took office but ended up being fired said he was made uncomfortable by one-on-one interactions with the president - just like Mr Comey was. Trump cited that, as his outside lawyer has as well, as evidence that there was no collusion or obstruction in his administration.
Trump's outside lawyer insisted Thursday that it was Comey who lied when he detailed conversations between himself and the President, raising the accusation that Comey committed perjury while testifying under oath.
"Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future", Trump said.
I hardly know the man. And he said multiple times that he choose to take detailed notes about his interactions with Trump because he anxious the White House and President would lie about them if he didn't.
"Who would do that?". But: "I think there's absolutely evidence to begin a case". I hardly know the man, it doesn't make sense'. The President fired Mr Comey last month. 'And there would be nothing wrong if I did say it according to everybody that I've read today, but I did not say that, ' he said.
"I'm not hinting. I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time". The "collusion" reference is apparently to the White House's long-running contention that there is no evidence Trump's campaign colluded with Russian attempts to undermine the election.
If they do, they asked that copies of the materials be provided to the panel by June 23.
