It was only a few days after James Comey was fired that Congress invited him to testify. Under Oath, James Comey admitted he provided information to a friend so it could be leaked to the media.
According to The Hill, those documents contained classified information. In a Sunday afternoon article The Hills says:
“Four of the memos had markings making clear they contained information classified at the secret or confidential level, according to officials directly familiar with the matter.”
Several Main Stream Media outlets have begun to twist the story. All of them have been unable to avoid the truth. Even adversarial Politico admitted the information was leaked and it is classified. Of course “their sources” tell them it was “retroactively” classified. They provided no details of when or by whom the alleged “retroactive” action was taken. Finally, Politico was forced to admit:
At least one of Comey’s memos remains unclassified, the source with knowledge told POLITICO.
In other words, all of the memos, except for one are CLASSIFIED.
President Trump Responds
Early Monday morning President Trump shared his concerns about James Comey’s actions Tweeting:
“James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!”
James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!

James Comey has not been seen publically in several weeks leaving some to wonder if he has gone into hiding alongside his co-conspirator Daniel Richman. Richman has been reported to be “in hiding” for several weeks after his involvement in the leaking scandal was revealed by the NY Post.
