Did Comey Leak Classified Memos? [VIDEO]

Remember the memos that former FBI director James Comey leaked to his friend? The ones that he admitted to leaking during sworn testimony to the Senate? All to bolster his case against President Trump?

Well, the Washington Times is reporting that those memos… most likely contained classified information.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley said Mr. Comey wrote seven memos, and shared four of them with a professor he was using as an intermediary to defend him. Of the seven, four are marked at the confidential or secret level — meaning at least one of the memos Mr. Comey shared contained restricted information.

Mr. Grassley now wants to know when and how the memos were deemed classified, and what that might mean for Mr. Comey.

Mr. Comey has said he gave copies of memos to Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, who then shared information from them with the New York Times.

Mr. Richman refused to give the memos to Mr. Grassley’s committee, but said he turned them over to the special counsel’s office and the FBI, which has now provided the limited access to Mr. Grassley. At least one of the memos had information now marked at the “secret” level, which is above “confidential” but below “top secret.”

“The Justice Department should know which memos were provided and be able to share that information with the committee,” Mr. Grassley wrote.

Holy. Wow.

So, why do we even BOTHER having classified information if anyone with clearance can just let others read it, and the leaker isn’t being tailored for a nice orange jumpsuit? Do we now just have the “Hillary Clinton” standard that if you worked for Hillary, or you leaked information to get back at Trump, it’s now okay?

Add that into the problems that Congress has with Comey’s testimony regarding the Hillary Clinton email decisions, and I’d say James Comey had better back off the Twitter virtue signaling and be in deep talks with his lawyer.
