President Trump’s legal team shot back Thursday at James Comey’s Senate testimony, defending the president in a brawny statement against the fired FBI director’s more damaging claims and asserting Comey himself could now be in legal jeopardy for his admission he’d leaked details of “privileged” conversations.
Trump’s personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, also said Comey’s testimony backed up Trump on key points — affirming that the president “never sought to impede” the Russia probe, and that while he was FBI director, Comey told Trump several times he wasn’t the subject of an investigation.
The president’s lawyer issued the rebuttal in a written statement that he read to reporters during a brief post-hearing appearance.
The statement sought to shield Trump and shift scrutiny onto Comey, who on Thursday delivered dramatic testimony that stopped short of accusing Trump of obstruction of justice but made numerous other allegations.

Comey was the hillary obama plant who was to work within the WH inner circle to destroy our President. Looks like Pres Trump knew much more than they give him credit for. He dumps Comey ; comey panics and sees his big bag of corruption money heading down the toilet, now he’s going to take Hillary, Lynch obama and many more out of revenge. On top of that on several topics he lied under oath and incriminated himself in several criminal offenses.
