In a tweer Sunday morning, President Trump on Sunday accused former FBI Director James Comey of lying under oath during questioning about anonymous sources.

On Saturday, the president accused Comey of “lies” and “leaks” related to former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday that he fired McCabe, accusing him of leaking information to the media and deceiving congressional investigators.

Trump fired Comey last May in a move that triggered the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian election meddling and possible ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Comey told a Senate panel last year that shortly after he was dismissed, he authorized “a close friend” to leak the contents of a memo to the press in order to prompt a special counsel investigation.

“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter,” Comey said. “I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
