It’s James Comey Day in Washington DC–
The unpredictable former FBI Director is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Fired FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intel Committee on Thursday that he asked a friend of his to leak to a memo he kept regarding his conversation with President Trump to the press.
Comey admitted this after Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), asked him why he kept the memos. She then asked if he ever shared any of them outside the DOJ.
Of course this was leaked to the New York Times. They ran with the story that Trump was pushing Comey to drop the Flynn investigation.
Daniel C. Richman confirmed to the Washington Examiner that he was Comey’s friend at Columbia. He has been referred to in the New York Times as a “longtime confidant and friend of Mr. Comey’s,” and his bio at Columbia’s website lists him as an “adviser to FBI Director James B. Comey.”
