James Comey Just Admitted A HUGE Mistake – Could He Go To Jail?
Former FBI Director James Comey admitted, under oath, that he was responsible for a memo being leaked to the New York Times.
Remember the James Comey memo?
This was the memo that supposedly proved that Trump ordered then FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into Michael Flynn.
That memo was never verified, because it was read to a slimy New York Times reporter over the phone. No physical copy existed.
Well, thanks to James Comey’s testimony today, we now know the backstory behind the memo. And it isn’t pretty, especially for Comey.

Comey straight-up admitted that he leaked information to the press that would damage the president.

This makes me ill. How in the world does a sitting FBI Director leak information about their boss to an adversarial press outlet in order to damage the president’s reputation?
Comey needs to face consequences for this. He leaked a “memo” to the New York Times with the intent to damage Trump. He deserved being fired. And he deserves to sit behind bars.
Share this story if you think James Comey is a traitor to our country!
UPDATE – The man Comey gave the memo to in order to leak it has confirmed he received it:
Columbia Law Prof Daniel Richman confirms to @ZCohenCNN that he is the friend that provided excerpts of the Comey memo to reporters.

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer also points out that the memo could have been classified information:
If Comey typed memo on classified laptop, was memo classified? Was his post WH meeting memo classified? If so, did C leak classified info?

This is just more damning evidence that proves Comey should be behind bars!
