Comey Admitted He Leaked Information About President Trump to the Press

The former FBI Director had a friend pass along the content of his memos to a reporter.

Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday that he leaked information about President Trump to the press through a friend.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) asked if Comey showed copies of his Trump meeting memos to anyone outside of the Department of Justice.

“Yes,” Comey responded.

Collins’ followed up by asking to whom did Comey show these memos.

Comey explained that he asked a friend to share the content of the memos with a reporter in the hopes that that this would prompt the appointment of a special counsel. Comey said he did so with the thought that these memos could corroborate any “tapes” that President Trump may have had of their conversations.
