Comey the president told mr. Comey quote

1-17

not exclude anyone from that statement

1-21

consistent with that statement the

1-24

president never in form or substance

1-27

directed or suggested that mr. Comey

1-31

stop investigating anyone including the

1-36

president never suggested that mr. Comey

1-39

quote let Flynn go close quote as the

president publicly stated the next day

2-41

he never said it in form and he never

2-44

said it in substance of course the

2-47

office of the president is entitled to

2-50

expect loyalty from those who are

2-52

serving the administration and from

2-55

before this president it and from before

2-58

this President took office to this day

3-01

it is overwhelmingly clear that there

3-04

have been and continue to be those in

3-07

government who are actively attempting

3-10

to undermine this administration with

3-13

selective and illegal leaks of

3-17

classified information and privileged

3-20

communications mr. Comey has now

3-23

admitted that he is one of these leakers

3-27

today mr. Comey admitted that he

3-31

unilaterally and surreptitiously made

3-35

unauthorized disclosures to the press of

3-38

privileged communications with the

3-41

president the leaks of this privileged

3-44

information began no later than March

3-47

2017 when friends of mr. Comey have

3-51

stated that he disclosed to them the

3-55

conversations that he had with the

3-57

president during their January 27th 2017

4-02

dinner and February 14th 2017 White

4-06

House meeting today mr. Comey admitted

4-10

that he leaked to friends of his

4-13

purported memos of those privileged

4-16

communications one of which he testified

4-19

was classified mr. Comey also testified

4-24

that immediately after

4-26

was terminated he authorized his friends

4-29

to leak the contents of those memos to

4-33

the press in order to in mr. commis

4-36

words quote prompt the appointment of a

4-40

special counsel close quote although mr.

4-43

Comey testified that he only leaked the

4-46

memos in response to a tweet the public

4-50

record reveals that the New York Times

4-52

was quoting from those memos the day

4-55

before the referenced tweet which belies

4-58

  1. commis excuse for this unauthorized

5-01

disclosure of privileged information and

5-05

appears to be entirely retaliatory we

5-09

will leave it to the appropriate

5-12

authorities to determine whether these

5-14

leaks should be investigated along with

5-17

all the others that are being

5-19

investigated in some it is now

5-22

established that the president was not

5-25

being investigated for colluding with or

5-28

attempting to obstruct any investigation

5-32

as the committee pointed out today these

5-35

important facts for the country to know

5-37

are virtually the only facts that have

5-40

not been leaked during the course of

5-42

these events as he said yesterday the

5-46

president feels completely vindicated

5-48

and is eager to continue moving forward

5-51

with his agenda with the business of

5-55

this country and with this public cloud

5-57

removed thank you

 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I AM MARC KASOWITZ. PRESIDENT TRUMP'S PERSONAL LAWYER. CONTRARY TO NUMEROUS FALSE PRESS ACCOUNTS LEADING UP TO TODAY'S HEARING, MR. COMEY HAS NOW CONFIRMED PUBLICLY WHAT HE REPEATEDLY TOLD THE PRESIDENT TRUMP PRIVATELY THAT IS, THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION AS PART OF ANY PROBE INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE. THE PRESIDENT -- MR. COMEY ADMITTED THAT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT A SINGLE VOTE CHANGE AS A RESULT OF ANY RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE. MR. COMEY'S SYSTEM TESTIMONY ALSO MAKES CLEAR THAT THE PRESIDENT NEVER SOUGHT TO IMPEDE THE INVESTIGATION INTO ATTEMPTED RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION. IN FACT, ACCORDING TO MR. COMEY, THE PRESIDENT TOLD MR. COMEY, QUOTE, "IT WOULD BE GOOD TO FIND OUT" IN THAT INVESTIGATION IF THERE WERE SOME SATELLITE ASSOCIATES OF HIM WHO DID SOMETHING WRONG. AND HE, PRESIDENT TRUMP, DID NOT EXCLUDE ANYONE FROM THAT STATEMENT. CONSISTENT WITH THAT STATEMENT, THE PRESIDENT NEVER INFORMED OR SUBSTANCE DIRECTED OR SUGGESTED THAT MR. COMEY STOP INVESTIGATING ANYONE INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT NEVER SUGGESTED THAT MR. COMEY "LET FLYNN GO." AS THE PRESIDENT PUBLICLY STATED THE NEXT DAY, HE DID SAY TO MR. COMEY, QUOTE, "GENERAL FLYNN IS A GOOD GUY AND HE'S BEEN THROUGH A LOT" AND ALSO "ASK HOW GENERAL FLYNN IS DOING." THE PRESIDENT NEVER DIRECTED HIM TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL, IMMORAL AND UNETHICAL OR INAPPROPRIATE CLOSED QUOTE AND NEVER, NEVER, QUOTE, PRESSURED HIM TO DO SO." DIRECTOR COATS SAID THE SAME THING. THE PRESIDENT LIKE WISE NEVER PRESSURED MR. COMEY. THE PRESIDENT ALSO NEVER TOLD MR. COMEY, QUOTE, "I NEED LOYALTY, I EXPECT LOYALTY." HE NEVER SAID IT IN FORM OR SUBSTANCE. OF COURSE, THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT IS ENTITLED TO EXPECT LOYALTY FROM THOSE WHO ARE SERVING THE ADMINISTRATION. BEFORE THIS, PRESIDENT TOOK OFFICE TO THIS DAY, IT IS OVERWHELMINGLY CLEAR THAT THERE HAVE BEEN AND CONTINUED TO BE THOSE IN GOVERNMENT WHO ARE ACTIVELY ATTEMPTING URN MIND THIS ADMINISTRATION WITH SELECTIVE AND ILLEGAL LEAKS OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION AND PRIVILEGE COMMUNICATION IS. MR. COMEY HAS NOW ADMITTED THAT HE IS ONE OF THESE LEAKERS. TODAY, MR. COMEY ADMITTED THAT HE UNILATERALLY MADE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURES TO THE PRESS OF PRIVILEGE COMMUNICATION COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE PRESIDENT. THE LEAK OF THIS PRIVILEGE BEGAN NO LATER THAN MARCH OF 2017 WHEN FRIENDS OF MR. COMEY STATED THAT HE DISCLOSED TO THEM THE CONVERSATIONS THAT HE HAD WITH THE PRESIDENT DURING THEIR JANUARY 27TH, 2017 DINNER AND FEBRUARY 14TH, 2017 WHITE HOUSE MEETING. TODAY, MR. COMEY ADMITTED THAT HE LEAKED TO FRIENDS OF HIS PROPORTED MEMOS OF THOSE PRIVILEGED IMMUNE COMMUNICATIONS. ONE OF WHICH HE TESTIFIED WAS CLASSIFIED. MR. COMEY ALSO TESTIFIED THAT AFTER HE WAS TERMINATED, HE AUTHORIZED HIS FRIENDS TO LEAK THE CONTENTS OF THOSE MEMOS TO THE PRESS IN ORDER TO MR. COMEY'S WORDS PROMPT THE APPOINTMENT OF SPECIAL COUNSEL. ALTHOUGH MR. COMEY TESTIFIED THAT HE ONLY LEAKED THE MEMO IN RESPONSE TO A TWEET. THE NEW YORK TIMES WAS QUOTING FROM THOSE MEMOS, THE DAY BEFORE THE REFERENCE TWEETS WHICH -- IT APPEARS TO BE ENTIRELY RETALIATORY. WE'LL LEAVE IT TO THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES TO DETERMINE WHETHER THESE LEAKS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED ALONG WITH ALL THE OTHERS THAT ARE BEING INVESTIGATED. IN SOME, IT IS NOW A ESTABLISHES THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS NOT BEING INVESTIGATED FOR COLLUDING WITH OR ATTEMPTING TO OBSTRUCT ANY INVESTIGATION. AS THE COMMITTEE POINTED OUT TODAY OF THESE IMPORTANT FACTS FOR R THE THE COUNTRY TO KNOW ARE VIRTUALLY THE ONLY FACTS THAT'S NOT BEEN LEAKED DURING THE COURSE OF THESE EVENTS. YESTERDAY, THE PRESIDENT FEELS INDICATE VITAMIN VINDICATED AND EAGER TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE BUSINESS OF THIS COUNTRY AND HIS PUBLIC CLOUD REMOVED. MR. MARC
