Did the man who gave Hillary Clinton a pass for mishandling classified information get away with doing the same thing?
According to records obtained by Judicial Watch, it appears so.
The trove of documents obtained by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request shows that the FBI retrieved several memos from James Comey summarizing private conservations with the president.
There’s one problem: the former FBI director kept these documents at his home after being fired by President Trump.
The documents’ seizure could have prompted Comey to admit to Congress the following day of leaking them. (Judicial Watch)
Judicial Watch announced today it received six pages of records from the FBI showing that in June 2017, a month after FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump, FBI agents visited his home and collected “as evidence” four memos that allegedly detail conversations he had with President Trump. One of his memos was written on June 6, a month after he was fired.
Comey was fired by Trump on May 9, 2017. The memos obtained by Judicial Watch were collected from Comey by the FBI on June 7, a month later, and are dated February 14, 2017; March 30, 2017; April 11, 2017; and one is dated “last night at 6:30 pm.”
The FBI documents also revealed that Comey recalled writing two other memos after conversations with Trump that he claimed were “missing.” The FBI visit and interview took place on June 7, the day before Comey admitted leaking the memos in testimony to Congress. [emphasis added]
