The White House asked me to pass this along re: the NYT story.

*Subject:* Statements for pool distribution

Good Evening

For pool distribution.

On background: While the President has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn. The President has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr. Comey.

On background:Deputy Director McCabe said in his testimony last week that the WH had not interfered with any investigation.
