The former U.S. Attorney found it difficult to defend the former the FBI Director’s actions during an interview on Sunday.
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that he thought former FBI Director James Comey could have made memos regarding his meetings with President Trump public in a way other than leaking them to the press.
Stephanopoulos asked Bharara if Comey’s actions violated FBI regulations by leaking the memos.
“I don’t know. It doesn’t seem to be,” Bharara responded.
Bharara continued, “one could make the argument that it was not the best way to go about trying to bring a story into the open.”
“Obviously, Jim Comey was comfortable after being called to testify, to testify about the memos and about the conversations, and it was just his recollection,” Bharara concluded. “I don’t really see what the major issue is. It may be that there was a better way to bring the information out like he did in the hearing, ultimately.”
