Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz is denying many of James Comey's claims he made while under oath.>> The President never suggested that Mr. Comey quote, let Flynn go, close quote.

But polls show that he has very little credibility right now with the rest of the American public that does not approve of his performance and support them. And in fact, our own polling Reuters's polling, has shown that half the country believes that he did interfere in some way with this investigation.

I think it's frankly insulting that that question would be asked.

>> The President himself unusually quiet, no tweets and no direct response to the hearing. Even ignoring questions from the press about it. Though he did say at a speech to religious conservatives.>> We're under siege, you understand that.>> The GOP's defense that the 70 year old head of the executive branch of the most powerful country on earth, simply didn't know any better.
00:01:33
>> The President's new at this, he's new to government.>> Mr. Comey.>> The Trump team also trying to shift focus on Comey's admission that he leaked his own memos through a third party to the press, about his interactions with the President. Trump's personal lawyer going so far as to suggest authorities might want to look into it.
