President Donald Trump's attorney Marc Kasowitz said Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey's testimony confirmed that Trump was not under investigation and that his client felt "vindicated."
"In sum, it is now established that the president was not being investigated for colluding with or attempting to obstruct any investigation," Kasowitz said. "As the committee pointed out today, these important facts for the country to know are virtually the only facts that have not been leaked during the course of these events. As he said yesterday, the president feels completely vindicated and is eager to continue moving forward with his agenda, with the business of this country, and with this public cloud removed."
Kasowitz largely recapped the favorable parts of Comey's testimony for Trump in his statement to the press, and he took no questions.
Kasowitz said Comey confirmed publicly Trump's repeated pronouncements that he was not personally under investigation, and he added that Comey said there was no evidence that Russian interference in the election changed a "single vote." He also said Comey made it clear that Trump never sought to impede the investigation into Russian interference.
Kasowitz did say, however, that it was untrue that Trump ever asked for Comey's loyalty.
He also attacked those in government trying to "undermine" the Trump administration.
"It is overwhelmingly clear that there have been and continue to be those in government who are actively attempting to undermine this administration with selective and illegal leaks of classified information and privileged communication," Kasowitz said, pointing to Comey himself as one of the "leakers."
