Trump accuses Comey of leaking classified information to media

Posted July 11, 2017

On Monday, Conway also defended Trump's son Donald Jr. over the controversy surrounding his decision to meet with a Russian attorney during the election who said she had information about Clinton.

The Columbia University Law School professor and confidant of former FBI Director James Comey refuted a charge by President Donald Trump and his advocates in the media Monday: that Comey shared classified information with journalists. "That is so illegal!"

The report, citing "officials familiar with the documents", indicated that more than half of the seven memos Comey wrote to memorialize his conversations with the president were determined "to contain classified information".

The tweet itself, which was also shared by Trump, said the report "accuses" Comey of leaking "top secret information" to a friend. "It's against the law".

President Trump wasted no time to pounce on the big reveal, calling it "illegal" - in that, Comey confessed to leaking information to the press personally to get action against Trump. "If true, this is bombshell news". "They've failed to represent half of the country", Trump retweeted this tweet of Carrie Sheffield, founder of Bold.

One must have a security clearance sufficiently high to warrant access to the material in question - and some classified information (including what was in Petraeus's journals) is so closely held that even an official with a top-secret clearance must have a "need to know" and be "read into the program" to which the information relates. So, he made a decision to leak at least one of his memos to the press. Since the agency considers the memos to be government documents, it's possible that Comey could face repercussions.

"Correct", said Commey, "I understood this to be my recollection recorded of my conversation with the president".

In testimony on June 8, Comey addressed the subject of classification.

Testifying before Congress last month, Comey revealed that a Tweet by the president - incorrectly suggesting he may have had taped his conversations with Comey - prompted the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to ask a close friend to leak to the news media private memos he had kept recounting his interactions with Trump.

Mr. Comey admitted under oath before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he leaked memos with the explicit aim to force the appointment of a special counsel.

"No memos were given to the press, and no memos were classified at the time I received them", he said, explaining that the "substance" of one memo was given to the press but not the physical document.
