Detailed notes by former FBI director James Comey documenting his conversations with US President Donald Trump have been published.
The memos cover Mr Trump’s concerns about a lurid intelligence dossier and also go into the president’s relationship with the then National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn.
Mr Trump said the published memos cleared him of wrongdoing.
The partially redacted notes were handed to Congress on Thursday.
They were requested by three Republican committee chairmen – Devin Nunes, Robert Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy – last week in the belief that their contents would prove allegations that Mr Trump had sought to obstruct justice were wrong.
The allegations relate to comments made by Mr Comey in testimony to Congress that the president had asked him to “let go” of an investigation into Mr Flynn.
In response, however, Mr Trump tweeted on Thursday that in his view, Mr Comey’s notes clearly show that there was no obstruction.
