JAmes comey testimony James comey opening Statement James Comey Trump

Comey, whom Trump abruptly fired in early May, said he prepared contemporaneous memos based on his conversations with Trump out of what concern the president might misrepresent the substance of their conversations. In all, Comey wrote seven memos detailing nine conversations he had with Trump.

But when the seven memos Comey wrote regarding his nine conversations with Trump about Russian Federation earlier this year were shown to Congress in recent days, the Federal Bureau of Investigation claimed all were, in fact, deemed to be government documents.

Contrary to the president's assertions, however, nothing in the report stated that any of the classified information contained within the Comey memos leaked out to the press.

Ironically, that was the same issue the FBI investigated in 2015-16 under Comey about Clinton's private email server, where as secretary of State she and top aides moved classified information through insecure channels.

During testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last month, Comey told lawmakers that he kept personal memos about his interactions with Trump because he didn't trust the president.

Unauthorized disclosure, misuse, or negligent handling of information contained in the files, electronic or paper, of the FBI or which I may acquire as an employee of the FBI could impair national security, place human life in jeopardy, result in the denial of due process, prevent the FBI from effectively discharging its responsibilities, or violate federal law.

According to The Hill's report, however, it wasn't just a couple of Comey's memos that had sensitive information.

While Comey did acknowledge in his testimony he shared notes with Columbia University professor to leak to the press, it's not clear that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director directed the release of any classified material.
