Comey’s remarks were outlined in an advance copy of his testimony released Wednesday.
“The President is pleased that Mr. Comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the President was not under investigation in any Russian probe,” Kasowitz said in a statement. “The President feels completely and totally vindicated. He is eager to continue to move forward with his agenda.
