I'm Just Going to Put This Right Here

Yesterday, Donald Trump gave a short press conference, during which this exchange happened:

REPORTER: Thank you, Mr. President. In the light of a very busy news week, a lot of people would like to get to the bottom of a couple of things, give you a chance to go on record here. Did you, at any time, urge former FBI Director James Comey—in any way, shape, or form—to close or to back down from the investigation into Michael Flynn? And also, as you look back—

TRUMP: No. No. Next question.
That's just the President of the United States saying, on camera, that he definitely did not try to influence Comey or his investigation. Just in case there is ever an obstruction of justice investigation where such a denial may be relevant.
