One day after the White House said it was “vindicated” by James Comey’s prepared remarks, saying that “the president is pleased that Mr. Comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the President was not under investigation in any Russia probe”, moments ago AP reported that President Trump will dispute key parts of Comey’s testimony, s according to a person close to the president’s legal team.
According to AP, Trump will dispute Comey’s claim that he asked him for loyalty. Trump also disputes Comey’s account of a conversation about the investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.
We are confident that this is just the beginning as moments ago while Comey admitted that Trump did not ask him to stop the Russia election probe, he did accuse the Trump administration of defaming him and the FBI and telling “lies.”
“The administration chose to defame me and more importantly, the FBI by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly run,” Comey said during the hearing.
Keep an eye on Trump’s twitter account as we doubt the president will be able to take 4 hours of this without unloading on his favorite social platform.
