Even staunch anti-President Donald Trump CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin realizes that James Comey is in deep trouble for leaking classified information.
“I think James Comey is actually in a pretty vulnerable position here,” Toobin said of Comey, whose memos disclosed classified information. Toobin admitted a few days ago that Comey might be in a Hillary Clinton-type position.
“I think Comey may really have a problem there,” Toobin said, accusing Trump of “pushing on a vulnerability of Comey’s.”
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.
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.
