After former FBI Director James Comey’s three-hour testimony in Congress, President Trump’s personal attorney gave a public statement disputing parts of his account.
Marc Kasowitz said two parts of Comey’s sworn testimony, in which he claims Trump asked him to for full loyalty and, on a separate occasion, asked him to “let go” of any investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, are not true.
Kasowitz also lambasted Comey for testifying that he had asked a friend to read one of his memos of an encounter with Trump to a New York Times reporter.
