President Donald Trump said Friday that James Comey’s testimony yesterday absolved him of colluding with the Russians to disrupt the election and did not show that he obstructed justice.
He also also said he did not ask for Comey’s loyalty and that he never asked him to halt an FBI investigation into Mike Flynn, relying on his former FBI director’s credibility and tearing it down again whenever it suited him.
Trump said during a news conference that he’d be willing to attest to his version of the story under oath and that he’d tell the Department of Justice’s special counsel the same thing.
‘No collusion. No obstruction. He’s a leaker,’ Trump said in a summary of his position.
