Former FBI director James Comey has revealed details of secret talks with US President Donald Trump - including discussions about Russian sex workers.
"We have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world," Mr Trump said Russian President Vladimir Putin told him, according to one note.
These details and more were revealed in 15 pages of memos written by Mr Comey, based upon his talks with Mr Trump before he was fired in May 2017.
The president had come under fire over an alleged encounter between him and Russian prostitutes in a Moscow hotel, where he allegedly watched sex workers urinate on a bed.
The memos say Mr Trump denied the allegations, saying "hookers thing" was nonsense.
"He did not say where Putin had told him this," Mr Comey wrote in the memo.
Another memo recounts how Mr Trump reportedly told Mr Comey he doubted his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, saying "the guy has serious judgment issues".
"I did not comment at any point during this topic and there was no mention or acknowledgment of any FBI interest in or contact with General Flynn," Mr Comey wrote.
Mr Flynn was fired a month later after he misled officials about his contact with Russia during the presidential transition period. However Mr Comey wrote that Mr Trump encouraged him to drop the investigation into Mr Flynn.
The memos were given to Congress on Thursday (US time) as House Republicans put the FBI under scrutiny for possible partisan bias.
Mr Trump has reacted angrily to them, accusing Mr Comey of leading classified information.
"James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION," he tweeted.
"Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?"
Mr Comey is currently on a publicity tour to promote his new book, A Higher Loyalty.
