Today was business as usual at the White House, said White House adviser Kellyanne Conway.
Despite President Donald Trump’s “array of meetings” on Thursday, Conway said he was “aware” of James Comey’s testimony.
“He was aware of the testimony. He had a lot of meetings with the team,” Conway said in an interview on Fox News. “I do want to make the case to everyone that where Washington said it was going to shut down, literally people took the day off from work to watch this. The president did not.”
“Today was no different,” Conway said.
She added that it was important for people to listen to Trump’s side of the story, referring reporters to the president’s attorney, Marc Kasowitz.
“If this was a classic legal case, you would have one side going the other side go. That’s not how congressional testimony works. The other side does not respond. It is very important that he responded,” Conway said.
Right after Comey’s congressional hearing, Kasowitz slammed the former FBI Director’s confession that he leaked his own memos to the press through a friend, calling them “unauthorized disclosures.”
“We will leave it [to] the appropriate authorities to determine whether this (sic) leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated,” Kasowitz said.
