Trump On Comey Hearing: "No Collusions, No Obstruction, He's A Leaker"

|

President Trump is asked about tapes of conversations with then-FBI Director James Comey and his opinion of Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday. Trump said there was no collusion and no obstruction and then called Comey a "leaker." The president also said the investigation is an "excuse" by the Democrats before they lost the election.

"I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future," Trump said about the alleged tapes.

Trump claims Comey confirmed what he has said.

"James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said and some of the things that he said just weren't true," Trump said.

"That was an excuse by the Democrats who lost an election that some people think they shouldn't have lost," Trump said of the investigation. "Because it's almost possible for the Democrats to lose the electoral college as you know. You have to run up the whole east coast and you have to win everything as a Republican and that's what we did. So it was an excuse. But we were very, very happy."

DAVID BOYER, WASHINGTON TIMES: This morning on Twitter you were referring to the testimony of James Comey vindicating you. But I wondered if you could tell us in person, sir, why you feel that his testimony vindicated you when it really boils down to his word against your word. And if you could also tell us, sir, do tapes exist of your conversations with him?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future. But, in the meantime, no collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker. But we want to get back to running our great country. Jobs, trade deficits. We want them to disappear fast. North Korea, big problem. Middle East, a big problem. So that's what I'm focused on. That's what I have been focused on.

But yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction. We are doing really well. That was an excuse by the Democrats who lost an election that some people think they shouldn't have lost. Because it's almost possible for the Democrats to lose the electoral college as you know. You have to run up the whole east coast and you have to win everything as a Republican and that's what we did. So it was an excuse. But we were very, very happy. And frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said and some of the things that he said just weren't true. Thank you very much.
