Former FBI Director James Comey left the FBI’s reputation in tatters.
Comey tarnished the bureau by leaking his memos about his conversations with the President to a friend.
Now this Deep State leaker is in hot water.
Comey revealed in Congressional testimony that he leaked memos recounting conversations with President Trump to a Daniel Richman, a Columbia University Law Professor.
The former FBI Director admitted he sent the memos to Richman so they would be leaked if he was fired and lead to the appointment of a special counsel.
Comey also put Richman on the FBI payroll and now The Daily Caller is suing the Department of Justice for access to their communications.
The Daily Caller reports:
Comey hired Richman as a special government employee, or SGE, to conduct an assortment of personal duties for him, including the task of developing “talking points” about the bureau’s investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Richman served on “special projects” as an SGE for at least 19 months and “served at the pleasure of” Comey, FBI records show, according to Fox News.
Richman also gave multiple interviews to reporters between July 2015 and February 2017 defending Comey’s handling of the Clinton email case.
TheDCNF seeks all of Mr. Richman’s work product developed on behalf of the former FBI director. It also seeks “all communications between the bureau and Mr. Richman concerning his SGE work assignments, all intra-bureau communications about Mr. Richman and his assignments and activities, as well as all work product delivered to Director Comey or to others within the bureau.”
Richman is another Comey associate whose role in the Clinton email and Russia investigations is now under scrutiny.
His leaking of Comey’s memos was the one act that is most responsible for the Mueller probe.
And the American people deserve a full accounting of all his actions while being paid by the taxpayers.
