A White House spokeswoman says President Donald Trump is "not a liar."

Former FBI Director James Comey opened his Senate testimony by saying the administration had spread "lies, plain and simple" and "defamed" him and the agency.

The White House had claimed after Comey's May 9 dismissal that he had lost the confidence of rank-and-file FBI agents. Trump claimed separately in a television interview that the FBI was "in turmoil" and hadn't recovered.

Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed Comey's testimony when asked about it during an off-camera briefing at the White House, saying "I can definitely say the president's not a liar."
