"He [Flynn] is a good guy and has been through a lot", Trump allegedly told Comey.
"The president said, 'I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.' I didn't move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed", Mr Comey said.
"I felt compelled to document my first conversation with the President-elect", Comey said, saying he began to "type it on a laptop in an Federal Bureau of Investigation vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting". Comey confirms this but said he didn't make it public, as the President wanted, just in case an investigation into Trump was opened at a later date.

The references to prostitutes refer to a dossier that circulated in Washington late past year containing accounts of purported Russian intelligence material about Trump.
"I explained that we had briefed the leadership of Congress on exactly which individuals we were investigating and that we had told those Congressional leaders that we were not personally investigating President Trump", Comey wrote.
