President Donald Trump's personal lawyer is planning to file a complaint against former FBI director James Comey for details he revealed during his congressional testimony.

President Trump's legal team will file a complaint early next week with the Justice Department's inspector general.

The complaint will take issue with Mr Comey's revelation that he asked a friend to pass along to a reporter notes he took of his private conversations with the president.

The team is also expected to file a submission with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

President Trump has a long history of threatening to file complaints and lawsuits and not following through.
