President Trump Attorney Marc Kasowitz Press Statement – 1:30pm EDT Livestream..

President Trump’s attorney is scheduled to deliver a statement after James Comey’s testimony today in congress.  The presser is scheduled to take place at the National Press Club.  All networks carrying and two livestreams below:

UPDATE: Video Added

[TRANSCRIPT] “Contrary to numerous false press accounts leading up to today’s hearing, Mr. Comey has now finally confirmed publicly what he repeatedly told the President privately: The President was not under investigation as part of any probe into Russian interference. He also admitted that there is no evidence that a single vote changed as a result of any Russian interference.

Mr Comey’s testimony also makes clear that the President never sought to impede the investigation into attempted Russian interference in the 2016 election, and in fact, according to Mr. Comey, the President told Mr. Comey “it would be good to find out” in that investigation if there were “some ‘satellite’ associates of his who did something wrong.” And he did not exclude anyone from that statement.

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 [him] to do anything . . . illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate” and never “pressured [him] 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.

Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President. The leaks of this privileged information began no later than March 2017 when friends of Mr. Comey have stated he disclosed to them the conversations he had with the President during their January 27, 2017 dinner and February 14, 2017 White House meeting. Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he leaked to friends his purported memos of these privileged conversations, one of which he testified was classified. He also testified that immediately after he was terminated he authorized his friends to leak the contents of these memos to the press in order to “prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

Although Mr. Comey testified he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet, the public record reveals that the New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which belies Mr. Comey’s excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to entirely retaliatory. We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated.

In sum, it is now established that there the President was not being investigated for colluding with the or attempting to obstruct that investigation. As the Committee pointed out today, these important facts for the country to know are virtually the only facts that have not leaked during the long course of these events.”

    Dershowitz: Comey confirms that I’m right – and all the Democratic commentators are wrong
    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/06/08/dershowitz-comey-confirms-that-im-right-and-all-democratic-commentators-are-wrong.amp.html

    Excerpt:

    Comey confirmed that under our Constitution, the president has the authority to direct the FBI to stop investigating any individual. I paraphrase, because the transcript is not yet available: the president can, in theory, decide who to investigate, who to stop investigating, who to prosecute and who not to prosecute. The president is the head of the unified executive branch of government, and the Justice Department and the FBI work under him and he may order them to do what he wishes.

          Nothing’s wrong there. It’s part of checks and balances. The president and other high ranking officials can be tried by congress through the impeachment process. The only problem with that dynamic is caused by monolithic political parties that span across the branches of government.

          Not all all. The president as cHief executive of the executive branch is the chief enforcer of the laws and can decide who to,prosecute and whom not to. That is why US Attorneys are the direct prosecutors appointed by the President to prosecute crimes. If congress thinks that the president is wrong in his decisions they can impeach him. But the president is the chief law enforcement officer of the country and he delegates day to day justice matters to the Atty Gen and the US Attys.

            It’s also the reason he has ultimate and unassailable pardon power–not only can he stop a prosecution of the innocent or those in his view not deserving of punishment, he can even pardon the clearly guilty, those who have already been convicted. And, he can pardon BEFORE a prosecution has been instituted, or right in the middle of a trial. So yes, a President can do so.

          If no crime has been committed then it is perfectly just. Are you aware of any crimes Flynn committed? Has he even been accused of committing a crime by anyone in law enforcement? And IF Flynn was to be accused of a crime, Trump could just pardon him. His constitutional power to do that is absolute, and perfectly legal.
          Of course all of this is moot, since no crime has been committed.

      Now that you post this I remember. At the time, Comey had just been fired and here comes the first article of dirt against the President. I thought PDJT sent the tweet in response to this article to warn Comey to be careful about publishing anything else because PDJT might have taped their conversations. The tweet was definitely AFTER the Comey leak, not the opposite which is what Comey testified to today. That’s the problem with lies, eventually the person(Comey) tells so many that they can’t keep em straight, then they get all tangled up in their own mess. Really makes me mad that they’re calling the President a liar 😡 The only liar I see here is Comey!

      Comey damaged himself publicly, but he will be drinking cocktails as a free citizen just like Hillary, Lynch, etc., for the rest of their lives. No one is going to be prosecuted. Only little people get prosecuted with jail time.

    It looks to me like the media are reading from scripts that were created before the Comey testimony. They were constructed based on what they HOPED he would say. He didn’t and instead admitted to many crimes but yet, they are reading from their prepared scripts anyway. Just like the muh Russia thing that was constructed to persecute citizen Trump after the massive fraud they just knew would give HilLIARy the presidency. They are SO STUPID, they continue when the facts say otherwise. Either that or they are mentally ill. At this point, it’s difficult to make a choice but EXTREME STUPIDITY or MENTALLY ILL are the only choices as to their behavior.

    The new narrative for mainstream slime media will be “obstruction of justice” by POTUS regarding Flynn. Comey chose this charge because, as a lawyer, he knows there can be NO “obstruction of justice” over a counter intelligence probe, only can be charged in a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, like Flynn’s.

    He’s provided the Dems, media and RINOS with the magic mushroom—and he’s done it by first getting a Special Prosecutor appointed. End run around the Justice Dept. with himself as martyred Star Witness in Mueller’s criminal investigation of this “obstruction” charge. Further, he KNOWS getting a Special Prosecutor onto POTUS will insure a cloud over his Presidency—likely for YEARS. Revenge, plus applause from his fellow Trump-haters.

    He’s first and foremost a political creature, despite all his mewling about bi-partisanship and love of America. His self-deprecation regarding his OWN character (too stunned to think clearly at the time, too stunned to set the President straight, too confused to stop communicating directly with the President, too concerned with Jeff Sessions being compromised to share his “concerns” about POTUS, too concerned about everyone elses’s integrity to share info with the gang of 8, etc. etc.etc) is all excuses to explain away behavior that is consistent with his OWN secret belief that the FBI ANSWERS TO NO ONE.

    This guy is in the same mold as egomaniacal J. Edgar Hoover.
    Yet, all his buddies, including Mueller, seem fully prepared to accept all his excuses and give him a free pass right in front of American viewers. I’m sick of hearing about his “integrity.” Like Comey, I’m feeling “queasy.”

    Gingerly , I offer some important insight . I think CTH is on the front lines in the war against this bloodless political coup unfolding. I found exchanges earlier in the thread , pertaining to a post factually stating that Fox News was actively carrying the water for Never Trump/Fourth Estate/Leftists/Media in real time , accurately expressed as gas lighting, unsettling . In Particular I read several exchanges stating the commenter was posting crap and how that is not desired here on the thread. Ironically , I was reading this thread ,with Fox on in background ,about to inform the thread Fox , including Napolitano , was in real time gas lighting .

    I respectfully implore all warriors to heed my words. You , nor I, can effectively make any change in the paradigm unless we can accurately rebut the narrative and persuade with rational thought applied . The “choir”, is not the audience we need to be enlightening. Now , it is true we can live amongst our own online voices in an echo chamber , but that will not shift the public narrative or hold our center in political capital terms. If the goal is to achieve the Trump agenda , then being acutely self aware of the enemy is crucial . Equally , if you are among the echo chamber that is in denial that the narrative by the opposition crew ( including Fox) has been highly effective to date in slowing down Trump’s agenda and endangering our national security , you are simply wrong. The narrative is false. But clearly you must recognize that is not pertinent to those who wage this war against our president and the people.

    The attitude that there is no need to know the real time narrative unfolding on Fox during and after the Comey’s testimony and subsequently , lawyers presser , I feel is counter productive to the goal. The tone I read towards the commenter who simply reflected what Fox’s narrative was in real time …..reminded me of being on Huff or NYT thread. Does not Sundance do just this -take what the media pundit , or politician is stating and de-construct , making us aware of what the narrative is being pushed?

    Some will attack and not gain insight from my comments. Fine ,Free will.
    But , I have a growing concern that too many dismiss entirely the profound power , causality , and calculating effectiveness of the media narratives. I believe this is what the previous commenter was pointing out on the thread so we could all be aware . The attempt to see the comment through the prism of , Fox is crap so not interested in what Fox says , is like leaving your sword back in the tent in 16th century France. The media is the catalyst . The media is the indoctrinator . If Trump ever falls , it will be the result of the media creating a narrative that provides the cover for a few elected swamp people to precede in dismantling democracy . The Republican Never Trumpers could not do what they do without the media providing supportive narratives.

    So , yes , It is your job as a warrior to know exactly what the enemy narrative is , which is ever changing ,and seek to refute , provide context , and push truth to all that will listen or read .

      True North, First I offer you my respect for taking the time and trouble to put your very well thought out arguments out here for all to read. That involves a lot of effort, and I salute you for that. Next, I agree with your main point that dismissing the media as unimportant is probably foolish as they are more powerful than we would like to admit.

      Where I disagree, and it is probably a minor point, is that I am very skeptical that the poster who prompted your reaction had any desire to do anything other than to distract and to get us spun up and taking potshots at each other. There are some common tactics used such as repeating the same talking points over and over and over without development of the ideas, consistently derailing the subject, that are legitimate tools of the professional concern troll. It is a real thing, they really do pay people to do that.

      I know that sometimes we may be too quick to jump someone as a concern troll. I have seen that done. That is unfortunate.

          True North, your are certainly welcome for whatever it is worth. Before I actually transitioned here from a long time lurker to a poster I was unfamiliar with the term troll as used here. I had to look it up. And I still didn’t really get it, but the more I read here the more I saw examples of it, some fairly called out and some unfairly attacked (totally in my judgment, so it is very subjective of course!)

          I had no idea that people were actually paid to troll sites like this and attempt to shift the topic of conversation and sow discord and discouragement. It is so incredibly disgusting, but they take the fight seriously whether they are carrying sharpened sticks and bricks and dressed in black or eating Cheetos in mom’s basement and warring via keyboard.

          But again, your thoughtful post was well done and worthy of respect and I agree with you.

    That’s the real story here, and even NY 7 News was smart enough to characterize Comey’s motive as nothing but revenge. Though, I am not sure how admitting to being a leaker is helpful. From the President’s lawyer I get the sense, Mr. Comey has just cooked his own goose…

    All of which could have been avoided if he didn’t play interference for Hillary Clinton.

      They know they are in deep doo doo and that is why they are already trying to spin with Oh, he meant to say this or that. Not going to work. Comey released a 7 page memo yesterday which shows that he thought through what he was going to say. He lied under oath today and nothing can change that no matter how hard they try.

      Even their desperate spin is meaningless. There’s no “if the President tweets about it first” clause in the laws about storage and handling of classified information. The fact that he called up a friend and asked them to leak it makes it conspiracy as well.

      We need to point out the lies long and loud, but at the same time, don’t get suckered into arguing a tangent point about which came first. The primary crime was in leaking classified info and the obvious motive was revenge for getting fired.

    I did not expect much, I did not imagine that comey would admit criminal behavior.
    I did notice that comey was talking way too much for his own good , Comey thought that he Comey was judge, jury and hangman , none of which were his job

    Saw this on Breitbarts comments section:

    Comey’s past of being a Clinton fixer was enough, imo. He also let Sandy Burgler off, and he benefited from the Clinton Fdn. He sounds like a venal little crybaby.

    This Law Professor who leaked the memo was a FORMER FBI BUDDY of COMEY!!!!
    The BACKFIRE OVER HOW COMEY LEAKED HIS MEMO . . . begins!
    In a COURT OF LAW a judge would tell jurors to disregard any testimony from Comey!

    Comey didn’t leak his meno to his buddy in order to prompt a special counsel. He knew there was no evidence on Trump. He did it to be vindictive for his firing. The ink on the paper was probably still wet when he handed to his friend to release.

    Senator Blunt makes an interest point. In dismissing the notion that Pres. Trump obstructed justice by talking about Flynn, he asks this:
    Did Obama obstruct justice by stating publicly during the Clinton email investigation that HRC had not INTENDED to violate any law and had not harmed national security? Did he thus influence Comey to later conclude that in fact Clinton had not ‘intended” to violate the law? Where were the calls for impeachment? Answer–no obstruction.

    Another point: When President Elect Trump stated that he didn’t think it would be appropriate to go after Hillary Clinton, because she had suffered enough, did ANYONE claim he had thus “obstructed justice”? Of course not, because he didn’t.

    Similarly, saying that he “hoped” that Flynn would not suffer any more was far, far from even arguable “obstruction”. People forget that the President of the US has the constitutional power to determine who is and who is not prosecuted federally, to the point that he can even pardon those already convicted. Dershowitz rightly points out the folly of labeling as “obstruction” a conversation of the type breathlessly hyped by Comey, the leaker and self admitted chicken.

    “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017

    I think Trump tweeted this because he MAY have insiders within the NYT. I know that sounds like a stretch but he has lived in NYC for decades and knows all the players of the Times. He may have got wind that Comey had leaked info to the Times thus PDJT tweeting the next day (5/12) about Comey’s leaking to the press.

      Yeah, but NYT published a 5/11 article recounting details of the Trump-Comey dinner that had to have come from Comey leaking. Since it was front-page news on 5/11, Trump’s 5/12 tweet doesn’t require that he has insider info, only that he or his staff read the newspaper.

      Elsewhere on this thread folks document the 5/11 NYT article.

        This isn’t the first time that the new state department refuses to get with the program. Tillerson has not taken any action to stop the flood of refugees into our country as the president promisd during the campaign. Tillerson continues to allow abuse of the H1B visa program. Tillerson hasn’t fired the US attache in England who directly under cut president trumps remarks about the English Terror attacks. Tillerson either doesn’t know what’s going on in his own department or he doesn’t seem to care about getting on the same page as President Trump . When we can read in the papers every day about some rogue state department employee doing something against the interests of the trumpet ministration until us and does nothing about it I would have to say he’s either clueless or incompetent or both. Suffice to say I am not overly impressed with Mr. Tillerson so far.

    Full disclosure that I saw someone post the following on another board – but wholeheartedly agree and am taking the liberty of reposting here: The big thing that no one is focusing on is the absence of something. That would be the absence of any tweets or comments from the President. That is so unusual for him (particularly on such a soft, ripe target as Comey’s testimony today). The first response was a LEGAL response from his personal attorney. I think the gloves are about to come off – and that makes me extremely happy!!!

    Interesting tid-bit from the May 11th NYT’s article:

    “Mr. Trump had met Mr. Comey for the first time in January, during the transition, when, along with the intelligence chiefs, the F.B.I. director presented him with evidence of that intervention. Mr. Comey was tasked by his fellow intelligence directors to also pull Mr. Trump aside and inform him about a secret dossier suggesting that Russia might have collected compromising information about him.”

    This article makes it sound like Comey was first in requesting a private conversation with then President elect Trump. Another small, but important detail. Does not jive with Comey’s outrage over discussing things discreetly or privately with the President.

    Of course the article could be complete crap and worthless as far as “sources said”. However, they often slip-up and say something accurate like this that is actually substantive to credibility.

        Yes, Chuck. It is indeed unlikely that we will ever see Comey, or any of his traitorous cohorts, actually tried, convicted, and ultimately jailed. However, justice can be served in many ways.

    TGP is reporting that James Comey’s statement today about leaking means that he lied to Senator Grassley in that recent hearing. Actually, he lied twice to Senator Grassley.

    I sent AG Sessions an email asking him to separate Comey from the other leakers and prosecute him NOW, since it has nothing to do with Russia or the campaign. I told him I see no reason the recusal should still apply, but to “un-recuse”, if that’s what it takes!

    This whole special prosecutor thing is Sessions and his assistant’s fault. They had and have the power to not allow the special prosecutor, but they chose to have Mueller who is a close friend of Comy?? Unbelievable, this must be stopped, Trump should fire Mueller for conflict of interest. Also Session’s assistant picked Mueller because his hob was threatened by the democrat communists and the scared little boy gave in to have Mueller the mule. THIS COUP MUST BE STOPPED NOW SOMEHOW, SOME WAY, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, TRUMP MUST SHOW THAT HE IS POWERFUL OR HE IS SUNK. As I said above, this is a coordinated coup of slimy anti-Trump Republicans, McCain, et al. and all the democrat low-life pigs which their party have become, dumb and dirty are they. Sessions, yet it is his fault that we are where we are with a special prosecutor, no matter what, Sessions and his assistant coward must be fired immediately. This can’t go on anymore. Stop the special prosecutor and fire Sessions and his assistant and anyone else who is anti-Trump.
