Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey is officially under investigation for leaking classified intel.
At least two memos that Comey gave to a friend named Daniel Richman, a professor at Columbia Law School, contained classified information.
According to the Wall Street Journal, The Justice Department inspector general is now conducting an investigation into classification issues related to the Comey memos.
President Trump has repeatedly bashed Comey for leaking classified intel to the press, including memos that predicated the hiring of a special counsel and the never-ending “Russian collusion” investigation.
Comey has begun a very public (and very stupid) book tour to peddle “A Higher Loyalty,” basically a diary of his time dealing with Trump in White House, which reads as if written by a pre-teen girl.
Apparently, Comey is unaware that he has the right to remain silent. Much of what he has said during the tour has shed light on information contained in his memos and he has even contradicted under-oath testimony that he made to Congress.
