James Comey testified that he shared the content of a memo with a friend who is a professor at Columbia Law School to pass to a reporter in order to prompt the appointment of an investigation with a special counsel. According to news source The Hill, four of the memos were marked as classified. The FBI’s employment contract states that unauthorized or negligent use of communications could violate federal law, and Comey may be guilty of the same crimes that he investigated in the Hillary Clinton email case.
More than 50% the memos that fired FBI Director James Comey wrote during his conversations with President Trump have been now determined to have contained classified information, according to the Hill.
Officials familiar with the documents have said that this means that Comey broke his own agency’s rules and broke the same security protocol Hillary Clinton ran into. Comey said that memos were unclassified. Here’s the unforgettable video below.
This new revelation says that four of the memos had markings on them that made them clear that they were classified at the “secret” or “confidential” level – according to the Hill’s sources.
Spokesmen at the FBI have declined to comment as of Sunday.
