Trump lawyer slams Comey’s sharing of ‘privileged communications,’ touts hearing as a win

Marc Kasowitz, outside counsel for President Donald Trump, released a statement in the wake of former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, saying Comey’s testimony makes clear that President Trump “never sought to impede the investigation into attempted Russian interference in the 2016 election.”

Kasowitz also disputed Comey’s claim that Trump asked for Comey’s loyalty. In his prepared opening statement for the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey described a moment during a January 27 dinner with President Trump in which Trump told Comey, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” Kasowitz says this claim is false.
