Marc Kasowitz claimed the president never demanded loyalty from Comey as the former FBI director alleged in Senate testimony.
In a statement to reporters Thursday afternoon, Kasowitz pushed back on various points of Comey's dramatic, under oath testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Though he undermined Comey's credibility on some assertions, he touted other points of Comey's testimony that backed up what Trump has said.
He also denied that Trump said he hoped Comey could "let go" a probe into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. Trump never "directed or suggested that Mr. Comey

Comey admitted Thursday that he shared his record of an explosive conversation with Trump, thinking it may "prompt the appointment of a special counsel" to the FBI's Russia investigation. Comey said he shared the contents of a memo about the Flynn conversation with a friend, who told a reporter about
Kasowitz claimed that it was an "unauthorized disclosure of privileged information" that "appears to be entirely retaliatory."
"We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this (sic) leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated," his prepared statement said.
