Former FBI Director James Comey did not deny that he leaked classified information to the media while holding a press conference after testifying before the House Judiciary Committee in a closed-door session on Monday.

“My understanding is that when you shared your memos with your legal team that there was a follow-up for a classified containment operation by the Bureau. Was there a spill of classified information when you shared those memos?” a reporter asked Comey.

The reporter was referring to memos that Comey wrote, which detailed his conversations with President Trump. Comey admitted he had given those memos to a friend, who then gave them to the New York Times.

“Yeah, I’m not going to talk about something like that,” Comey responded before attempting to take another reporter’s question.

“Well, that’s important to talk about, whether classified information was mishandled,” the reporter followed up.

“Whether you think it is or not, I’m not going to talk about it, one way or another,” Comey told the reporter.
