Fired FBI Chief James Comey told reporters at his book signing Tuesday in Chicago he hired former US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald last year — around the time he was fired.
News broke earlier Tuesday that Comey had hired Fitzgerald.
Comey admitted last year during Congressional testimony that he leaked memos to his close friend Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, in order to push a special counsel against President Trump.
Richman announced in January of this year that he was now Comey’s lawyer.
FOX News legal expert Gregg Jarrett told Sean Hannity on Tuesday that Comey likely leaked the memos to his friend Patrick Fitzgerald.
Jarrett was right.
As TGP reported earlier James Comey admitted Thursday that he leaked his private and likely classified memos with Patrick Fitzgerald last year when he was fired.
