Donald Trump Claimed, Without Evidence, That a Key Interview Was Doctored. Now His Lawyer Is Claiming That Too:

In a 2017 interview, President Donald Trump said in an interview that one of his reasons for firing FBI Director James Comey was the investigation into Russian meddling in the election.

“In fact when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story,” Trump told NBC’s Lester Holt in May of last year.

Now, Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow has claimed, without evidence, that the interview was doctored.

“You know that when there are interviews, there are edits and there is a longer transcript, and I will just tell you without disclosing any detail that when you review the entire transcript, it is very clear as to what happened,” Sekulow told CNN on Wednesday.

The claim echoes one that Trump himself made, also without evidence, when he tweeted in August that NBC had been “fudging my tape on Russia.”
