Shortly after James Comey’s testimony Marc Kasowitz who is the lawyer representing the President issued a prepared statement.
Kasowitz stated that Comey “admitted there is no evidence” that Russia changed one vote during the election. Also, Comey admitted that President Trump is not under any investigation personally.
Kasowitz then called Comey a liar for claiming that Trump asked for his loyalty. Kasowitz declared:
Consistent with that statement, the President never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone, including suggesting that that Mr. Comey “let Flynn go.” As he publicly stated the next day, he did say to Mr. Comey, “General Flynn is a good guy, he has been through a lot,” and also “asked how is General Flynn is doing.” Admiral Rogers testified that the President never “directed to do anything . . . illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate” and never “pressured to do so.” Director Coates said the same thing. The President likewise never pressured Mr. Comey.
The President also never told Mr. Comey, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty” in form or substance. Of course, the Office of the President is entitled to expect loyalty from those who are serving in an administration, and, from before this President took office to this day, 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 communications. Mr. Comey has now admitted that he is one of these leakers.

So what do you think? My guess this is going to turn into he said she said game?
