Fact-checking Trump's lawyer after Comey's testimony


@miriamvalverde @jonzgreenberg

President Donald Trump says that fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony on June 8 absolved him and exposed Comey as "a leaker."

"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker!" Trump tweeted June 9.

After Comey’s under oath testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz disputed several of Comey’s statements. But there was a lot of spin in Kasowitz’s comments. 

Here we’ll go over the televised June 8 statement from Trump’s attorney and sort out the facts.

Keep reading PolitiFact's report about Kasowitz's statements. (Also check out 6 big moments from the June 8th hearing and three times James Comey's testimony contradicted Donald Trump.)
