President Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz took a victory lap moments ago following the testimony of the former FBI Director James Comey. He said that the much-anticipated Senate hearing proved what the Trump officials claimed for months.
The lawyer hammered Comey for releasing information about his conversation with the president to reporters in attempt to force the appointment of a special-counsel inquest into Russian election interference.
Marc Kasowitz released a statement regarding Comey’s testimony, and said: ‘Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President.’
“Although Mr. Comey testified he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet, the public record reveals that the New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which belies Mr. Corney’s excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to entirely retaliatory.”
Then he went on to conclude that Mr. Comey’s testimony makes clear that the President never sought to influence statements in the investigation about Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Kasowitz added that James Comey is a liar, and called into question the memos that comprised the bulk of his testimony.
Trump never pressured Mr. Comey,” he insisted.
And ‘the President also never told Mr. Comey, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty” in form or substance.’
These claims were part of Comey’s written and spoken presentations.
This is a serious issue that needs to be seen by every Trump supporter immediately. Not only did Comey’s testimony PROVE Trump didn’t obstruct justice, it also brought some big troubles to James Comey. That’s why we MUST share this out NOW.
