Former FBI chief James Comey will tell Congress on Thursday President Donald Trump wanted a "patronage relationship" and asked for his "loyalty", the BBC reported.

According to his opening statement, Comey will also testify the president asked him to drop an inquiry into fired National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

He says Mr Trump called the Russian probe "a cloud" over him.

Mr Comey also says he had told Mr Trump three times he was not under scrutiny, confirming the president's account.

Reacting to the prepared testimony on Wednesday evening, Mr Trump's private legal counsel on the Russia inquiry, Marc Kasowitz, said the president was "pleased" Comey had confirmed he was not in investigators' crosshairs.

"The president feels completely and totally vindicated," said the attorney.
