Trump’s lawyer rejects allegations put forward by James Comey
Trump’s lawyer rejects allegations put forward by James Comey: President Trumps lawyer Marc Kasowitz has said that President Trump had never sought to impede the investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The lawyer further suggested that the alleged leaks by Mr Comey should themselves be investigated.
On Thursday, 08th, June, 2017, Mr Comey had testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee on about events leading up to his sacking.
A number of explosive claims were made by Mr Comey said:
- the Russians had interfered in the last year’s US election
- President Trump had asked Mr Comey to drop an ongoing investigation into the former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was forced out of the office after he had mislead the vice-president about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador before Mr Trump took office
- The President had demanded the loyalty Mr Comey
- the president defamed him and the FBI by claiming the agency was “poorly led” to this Mr Comey had said that they were “lies, plain and simple“
- Mr Comey claimed that he may have been fired to “change the way the Russia investigation was being conducted“
- Mr Comey did not have knowledge of the president trying to stop the Russia investigation
- Mr Comey claimed that it was not for him to say whether Mr Trump’s actions were an obstruction of justice
The former FBI director had been leading an investigation in the matter before he was fired.
Mr Comey alsoe added that he kept a written record of the conversations with the president as he was “honestly worried he might lie” about them, Mr Comey had leaked details of one conversation about the Michael Flynn investigation after a version of it had already been published in the press.
As a result of that episode, a special counsel was appointed to lead an independent investigation into the Trump campaign’s potential ties to the Kremlin.
