In his aggressive defense of President Trump, Kasowitz has in substance accused the former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation of leaking "privileged communications" and of possibly committing perjury in his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
No collusion, no obstruction.
Mr Trump's lawyers argue that it was subject to executive privilege, although the president has never asserted privilege over his conversations with Mr Comey and independent legal experts have expressed doubt that he could.
"I'll tell you something about that, maybe sometime in the very near future", Trump said when asked about the purported existence of the tapes during a press conference at the White House today.
Mr Trump's aides have dodged questions about whether conversations relevant to the Russian Federation investigation have been recorded, and so did the president, in series of teases.
How else do you explain Trump praising Comey one moment - just days before the presidential election in November - for having the "guts" to make public the FBI's probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server and then firing him in May for his handling of that same investigation?
"As I used to say to juries when I talked about a witness, you can't cherry pick it".
Herring appeals new sentencing hearing for Malvo
Malvo was sentenced to four life terms and could be sentenced to life again even if ultimately re-sentenced. Last month, a federal judge ordered Malvo to be resentenced, NBC News correspondent Pete Williams reported.
Trump's Twitter account had been quiet throughout Comey's testimony accusing the administration of spreading "lies".
And Comey admitted that he asked a friend to leak those notes to a reporter, correctly betting that the details would prompt the appointment of a special prosecutor.
Comey handled himself like a boss, though, refusing to let comments about his imposing size overshadow the president's influence, and cracking wise about the pee tapes he hopes are out there.
"I can definitely say the president is not a liar and frankly am insulted by that question", White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. Dianne Feinstein of California asked, "Why didn't you stop and say, 'Mr". The White House has denied collusion with Moscow.
The President last formally took questions on May 18, when he held a bilateral news conference - similar to the one that will happen Friday - with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. And Comey testified, the president pressured him to end the probe of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
"It crossed a boundary that the president should not have crossed".
Trump referenced these supposed tapes in a perfectly normal, non-threatening tweet back in May.
Kasowitz, whom Trump hired last month to help him navigate the potential legal threats of the Russian Federation investigation, said in a statement shortly after Comey's testimony that the fired FBI director had made public "privileged" communications with the president.
The president heads to his home in Bedminster, New Jersey on Friday. Think of that. I hardly know the man.
