Donald Trump Jr. released screenshots of the emails Tuesday apparently showing how he was offered, and accepted, the chance to meet with a person who was said to be a Russian government attorney who had incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.
"And in fact when I made a decision to just do it I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won, '" Trump told Holt.
Initially, Trump cited a letter from the deputy attorney general detailing Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation.
Comey testified in June that Trump asked him to pledge loyalty and to drop the investigation into fired national security adviser Mike Flynn.
He said no one had asked him for any loyalty oath, and that he wouldn't give one.

Trump thinks Comey was a "nut job;" Wray doesn't: "In all my dealing with Jim Comey, he was a terrific lawyer, a dedicated public servant and a wonderful colleague".
"I do not consider Director Mueller to be on a witch hunt", Wray said under questioning by Sen.
Asked how he would respond if the president asked him to do something unlawful or unethical, Wray responded, "First I would try to talk him out of it, and if that failed, I would resign".
Graham rephrased the question as a hypothetical.
Pressed on how he would have handled the situation, he said he couldn't imagine holding a news conference about someone who had not been charged, noting Justice Department policies against doing so.
OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS: As head of the Justice Department's criminal division, Wray oversaw major criminal prosecutions - such as the special task force investigating the Enron collapse - and he also helped shape the USA government's legal response to terrorism and national security threats after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
