Trump has come out swinging against James Comey and it’s a beautiful thing!
“No collusion. No obstruction. He’s a leaker,” said Trump!
What more do we need to know? Trump totally vindicated and now he’s going on the attack, claiming that James Comey said many things that weren’t true under oath. In other words, he lied under oath to Congress! Bad move Comey!
Here’s a recent report, from BuzzFeed News:
President Trump on Friday claimed former FBI Director James Comey lied under oath during his sworn testimony before a Congressional committee.
“No collusion. No obstruction. He’s a leaker,” Trump said during a White House news conference when asked about Comey’s testimony.
The president’s public statements were the first since Comey testified Thursday, accusing Trump of asking him to “let go” of the FBI’s Michael Flynn investigation and lift the “cloud” of the Russia investigation.
When asked about Comey’s testimony, Trump said “I didn’t say that,” although he added “there’d be nothing wrong if I did say it.”
“It was an excuse by the Democrats who lost an election,” Trump said, repeating a claim he has made when asked about the multiple investigations into Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion with his campaign.
Trump also continued to play coy regarding the possibility of there being taped recordings of his exchanges with Comey, telling reporters, “I’ll tell you sometime maybe in the very near future.”
The president was also asked if he would abide by Article 5 of NATO considering the threat Eastern European nations still sense from Russia.
Article 5 is the most significant portion of the agreement that binds member nations to defend militarily defend each other, a provision that Trump noticeably did not address during his recent trip with NATO allies in Sicily.
“I’m committing the United States and have committed, but I’m committing the United States to Article 5,” Trump said.
The news conference, however, quickly veered back to Comey’s testimony and the White House’s refusal to say whether there are tapes of his exchanges with the former FBI director.
When reporters continued to press the president on whether there were tapes, and if and when the White House would release them, he responded: “I’m not hinting about anything, I’ll tell you in a very short period of time.”
