Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.) is a staunch supporter of Trump’s foreign policy, he also dined with the president Monday at the White House. He’s cast doubt on the reports of Trump and Comey’s interactions and whether the president asked the director to back off Flynn.

“The accounts of these memos he allegedly wrote would be at least triple hearsay, what Donald Trump said, according to Jim Comey, according to someone who saw the memo, according to the New York Times’ reporter who had it read to him, didn’t even read it,” Cotton told “The Hugh Hewitt Show.” “So I don’t know what Mr. Comey will say on any of these matters beyond what he said to Congress in the past.”
