Marc Kasowitz, a personal attorney for President Donald Trump, threw cold water on Sen. Kamala Harris' questioning of Brett Kavanaugh, denying he had any contact with his firm, Kasowitz Benson Torres.
"There have been no discussions regarding Robert Mueller's investigation between Judge Kavanaugh and anyone at our firm," a spokesman for Kasowitz said in a statement first provided to CNBC on Thursday.
Harris, D-Calif., had grilled Kavanaugh on Wednesday about whether he had any contact with members of Kasowitz's firm regarding Mueller's special counsel investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election. Kavanaugh appeared confused during the late-night questioning.
Harris aides on Wednesday evening had told CNBC on condition of anonymity that they had "reason to believe that a conversation happened and are continuing to pursue it."
