Things just went from bad to worse for former FBI Director James Comey.
He probably hoped his downfall would end with last week’s congressional testimony, after which Comey could retreat home and fade into political obscurity.
Unfortunately for him, that won’t be the case.
From The Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, will file a complaint against former FBI Director James Comey for orchestrating a leak to The New York Times in hopes of spurring the appointment of a special counsel.
Two unnamed sources told CNN that the president’s legal team will file a complaint with the Department of Justice Inspector General and the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, after Comey acknowledged that he orchestrated the leak of a memorandum detailing his private interactions with President Donald Trump during testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Thursday morning.
“Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President,” Kasowitz said at a hastily-arranged press conference after Thursday’s hearing. It is not clear that the memos were privileged, though at least one of them was prepared on a classified computer, according to Comey’s testimony.
It is not yet known when Trump’s legal team could file its complaint.
Let this be a lesson. You really DON’T want to mess with President Trump.
