Trump and the GOP f ire back

Los Angeles Times - - FRONT PAGE - — Noah Bier­man

High­lights from the James Comey hear­ing and re­ac­tions from across the po­lit­i­cal spec­trum.

Pres­i­dent Trump sounded a de­fi­ant note in a speech de­liv­ered even as for­mer FBI Di­rec­tor James B. Comey, in tes­ti­mony be­fore the Se­nate In­tel­li­gence Com­mit­tee, was ac­cus­ing him of ly­ing.

“As you know, we’re un­der siege, you know that, but we will come out big­ger, bet­ter and stronger than ever,” Trump said in an ad­dress to a Faith and Free­dom Coali­tion gath­er­ing in Wash­ing­ton.

Trump cast his po­lit­i­cal en­e­mies as “en­trenched in­ter­ests” try­ing to thwart the agenda he promised dur­ing the cam­paign.

“They will lie, they will ob­struct, they will spread their ha­tred and their prej­u­dice, but we will not back down from do­ing what is right,” he said.

“We know that the truth will pre­vail,” he said. “That the good, de­cent peo­ple of this coun­try will get the change they voted for and that they so richly de­serve.”

He added: “Noth­ing worth do­ing ever came easy. We know how to fight bet­ter than any­body, and we never give up. We are win­ners and we are go­ing to fight.”
