Former FBI Director James Comey sought to take down Trump after he was fired.
To do so, he leaked four memos he wrote to a friend with the intent of getting a special prosecutor appointed after the press got ahold of them.
But Chuck Grassley just dropped a bombshell that may have Comey in hot water.
When Grassley reviewed the documents, four of the seven memos Comey authored were marked “confidential” or “top secret.”
This means one of the four memos Comey leaked contained classified information.
The Washington Times reports:
Mr. Grassley now wants to know when and how the memos were deemed classified, and what that might mean for Mr. Comey.
The Iowa Republican fired off a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein demanding answers.
“Has there been any review of whether the disclosure of the memoranda by Mr. Comey was otherwise improper, such as whether it violated his employment agreement or any Department rule or policy? If so, what is the status of the review? If not, why not?” Mr. Grassley wrote.
He said he’s personally reviewed the seven memos, but was forced to do so in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF.
“The FBI insisted that these reviews take place in a SCIF because the majority of the memos are classified,” he said. “FBI personnel refused to answer factual questions during the document reviews, including questions about the chain of custody of the documents I was reviewing, the date that they were marked classified, and who marked them as classified.”
Prior to his attempt to take down the president, Comey had a reputation in Washington like that of a “boy scout.”
His potentially reckless handling of classified information while executing a personal vendetta against Trump ought to tarnish the image he once had.
What do you think should happen to Comey if he leaked classified information?
