White House denies New York Times report that Trump asked Comey to stop Flynn investigation
White House denies New York Times report that Trump asked Comey to stop Flynn investigation by Carlos Garcia.
The White House is denying a damaging report by the New York Times Tuesday that former FBI Director James Comey left a paper trail documenting President Trump’s alleged attempts to improperly influence the investigation into Mike Flynn’s interactions with the Russians.
The White House has issued a denial of the allegation.
While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn. The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey.
