Trump’s lawyer cites a questionable timeline in disputing Comey

Fri, 06/09/2017 - 02:49

In his effort to undercut former FBI director James Comey’s Senate testimony Thursday, President Trump’s lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, appears to have misstated the sequence of two crucial events in the ongoing probe of the administration: Trump’s now infamous tweet implying he may have tapes of his conversations with Comey, and a New York Times article disclosing the existence of Comey’s memos about his meetings with the president. In Comey’s account to the Senate intelligence committee, he “woke up in the middle of the night” on Monday, May 15, thinking about the president’s tweet the previous Friday, suggesting there might be tapes of the conversations between the two of them. Marc Kasowitz, personal attorney of President Trump, leaves the National Press Club after delivering a statement following the congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey, June 8, 2017.
