Remember when James Comey admitted asking a friend to leak a story to the New York Times? He suddenly doesn’t want to discuss leaks anymore. Catherine Herridge of FOX News asked him a very fair question on the topic and he dismissed her.
James Comey Dodges Questions About Whether He Leaked Classified Information
Speaking to reporters after a lengthy grilling by Republicans on Capitol Hill Monday afternoon, fired FBI Director James Comey dodged a question about whether he leaked classified information in order to launch Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation. He also attacked veteran journalist Catherine Herridge in the process.
During open testimony last summer, Comey admitted to giving memos to a friend, who then gave them to the New York Times. The memos were about conversations Comey had with President Trump at the White House.
On May 16 the New York Times published a story citing memos belonging to former FBI Director James Comey. The paper reported the memos showed President Trump asked for the FBI investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to be dropped during a private meeting at the White House before Comey was fired. The content of the memos was described in the reporting, but the memos were not published.
Watch below as Comey says he’s not going to talk about it:
Same old Comey. Trump was so right to fire him.
