Comey has claimed to have notes of all his meetings with the president including one in which he says Trump - having cleared the Oval Office of all other staff - told him not to pursue an investigation into Mike Flynn, the National Security Adviser being probed for links to Russian Federation. "Moreover, the White House has not ruled out the possibility of using the rule to challenge Mueller's findings in court, should the investigation lead to prosecution".

The alleged conversations were intercepted by US intelligence officials, according to CNN.
