He said that leakers of classified information “often don’t know what’s going on.“
Former FBI Director James Comey cast doubt on various news reports that cite classified information before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
Sen. James Risch (R-ID) recalled that Comey had once called members of Congress to shoot down a New York Times report as “not true.”
Comey also recollected the situation.
“In the main, it was not true,” Comey said. “The people talking about [classified information] often don’t really know what’s going on, and those of who actually know what’s going on are not talking about it.”
Comey added that those with access to the true story could not reach out to publicly deny the stories due to protocol.
