Comey’s ‘Friend’ Who He Asked To Leak Information To The Media Apparently Had Security Clearance.

James Comey claims he leaked his memo to another source in order to get a Special Council formed against President Trump. His careless actions weren’t just unethical but possibly self-incriminating.

According to Washington Examiner, the professor (Patrick Fitzgerald) who helped former FBI Director James Comey leak memos  detailing his conversations with President Trump to the media has confirmed he was a “special government employee.”

“I did indeed have SGE status with the Bureau (for no pay),” Daniel Richman, a Columbia law professor, confirmed in an email to Fox News on Tuesday.

As Reported By Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Browne, Cyd Upson With Fox News:

The James Comey memos that leaked to the media and were a catalyst for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller were more widely shared than previously known, three sources familiar with the matter tell Fox News.

Sources identified former U.S. Attorney and special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald as the likely recipient and did not rule out a third individual, in addition to Columbia law professor Daniel Richman, who shared contents with the media. The memos documenting Comey’s private conversations with the president are now the subject of a Justice Department Inspector General review over the presence of classified information.

Patrick Fitzgerald is a longtime friend of Comey’s and now his lawyer, as first reported by Talking Points Memo. Fitzgerald did not respond to emails or a voicemail seeking comment.

Fox News asked Fitzgerald how many memos he received, if Comey, Richman or a third party provided them, whether they were stored securely because of classified contents, and whether the FBI took steps — to include his personal and business electronics — to mitigate the spill of classified information.  In the event he did not receive any Comey memos, Fitzgerald was invited to provide an on the record statement to Fox News.

The publisher of Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” did not respond to Fox News’ questions. An FBI spokesperson offered no comment.
