Report: Trump’s Lawyer to File Complaint With DOJ About Comey Leak
President Trump’s lawyer, Marc Kasowitz is reportedly going to file a complaint with the Department of Justice against Comey over the memo leaks.
Via ABC News:
President Trump’s personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz will file a complaint with the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General asking for an inquiry into James Comey over his leaking the details of his conversations with the president and the memos about those conversations, according to a source close to the Trump legal team.
Kasowitz is also drafting a similar submission to be sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the former FBI director’s Senate testimony Thursday and “other matters,” the source told ABC news.
The plans come after Trump broke his silence on Twitter today and posted, “WOW, Comey is a leaker!”
Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!

During Comey’s testimony on Thursday, he admitted that he had given contents of his Trump memo to a good friend who is a professor at Columbia Law School (later to be identified as Daniel Richman) to leak to the press. Richman has since gone into hiding.
President Trump’s lawyer, Marc Kasowitz spoke after Comey’s testimony emphasizing that what Comey did was against the law and that he had lied under oath.
Comey FALSELY claimed he leaked private conversations because of Trump’s tweet — which wasn’t published until the following day after the leak!
