President Trump spoke in intimate and candid terms to the former F.B.I. director James Comey about some of the most sensitive matters before the agency, including the salacious dossier detailing Mr. Trump's ties to Russian Federation and the investigation into Michael T. Flynn, the president's first national security adviser, according to Mr. Comey's closely guarded memos.

President Donald Trump was tweeting from Mar-a-Lago late Thursday night and early this morning about fired FBI Director James Comey, his book tour and the release of 15 pages of redacted memos Comey wrote after meetings with Trump in 2017. They offer an extraordinary look at the private interactions among leaders at the highest levels of government.

Comey and Trump discussed the infamous "pee tape" dossier, he wrote in a memo dated February 8, 2017.

A source familiar told CNN that Trump did not read the memos but was briefed on their contents prior to the Justice Department's release to lawmakers.

"The President said "the hookers thing" is nonsense, but that Putin had told him 'we have some of the most handsome hookers in the world, '" according to one memo.

Trump also asked on Twitter, "Why did he lie to Congress (jail) ..."

President Trump tweeted on Friday that Comey can "General Michael Flynn's life can be totally destroyed" by his media blitz. "Will the Witch Hunt continue?" Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating potential ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign as well as possible obstruction of justice by the president.

Mr Boyd wrote in the letter that the department "consulted the relevant parties" and concluded that releasing the memos would not adversely affect any ongoing investigations.

In his January 28 conversation with Trump, Comey also writes that Trump said "the hookers thing is nonsense", but then later said that "Putin had told him, 'we have some of the most attractive hookers in the world'". In their final April 11 conversation, Comey writes that Trump told him: "I have been very loyal to you, very loyal, we had that thing, you know".

Boyd said the decision to allow the release of the memos "does not alter the department's traditional obligation to protect from public disclosure witness statements and other documents obtained during an ongoing investigation". "I don't think so!"

Last week, the GOP chairmen of three House committees demanded the memos by Monday. The Justice Department asked for more time, and the politcians agreed.
