President Trump underwent a series of personal attacks during former FBI Director James Comey's testimony about Russia's involvement in the 2016 election. Although the Democratic party worked diligently to increment the president, the Republican representatives did their job to expose the real leaker, and that is Comey.
Attorney Marc Kasowitz, Donald Trump's lawyer, took center stage after the testimony to defend his client and shed light on why Comey was testifying in the first place. Comey allegedly used this as an opportunity to retaliate against President Trump by leaking privileged communications between him and the president to the press.
Kasowitz made a statement responding to Comey's testimony by saying it was "overwhelmingly clear" that there are select individuals who have been and continue to undermine the Trump Administration by illegally leaking classified information and privileged communications.
"Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President," Kasowitz said. "Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he leaked to friends of his, purported memos of those privileged conversations, one of which he testified, was classified. Mr. Comey also testified that immediately after he was terminated he authorized his friends to leak the contents of those memos to the press in order to, in Mr. Comey’s words, “prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”'
"In some, it is now established that the President was not being investigated for colluding with or attempting to obstruct any investigation," Kasowitz continued. "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."
According to Trump's lawyer, it's safe to say James Comey has a personal vendetta against the president, and until the American people are told otherwise, his testimony should be taken lightly.
