Corrupt Comey says Trump is connected to Russia — but now he’s in hot water! His Trump memos — recollections of his conversations with the President — contained classfied information. These are the same memos that Comey admitted to leaking to media outlets, specifically The New York Times.
Comey claims that it was legal for him to leak those documents, because he did so as a “private citizen”, but he was serving as the director of the FBI when those memos were made, which calls his decision into question.
His decision certainly violates the contact that all FBI employees sign, which says “I will not reveal, by any means, any information or material from or related to FBI files or any other information acquired by virtue of my official employment to any unauthorized recipient without prior official written authorization by the FBI.”
Pres. Trump also weighed in, tweeting:
James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!
