Trump Attorney Calls for Comey to Be Investigated for ‘Illegal’ Memo Leak
President Trump’s attorney called for an investigation into former FBI Director James Comey’s “illegal” leak of his personal memos to the media. Talking to Sean Hannity, Jay Sekulow called on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Comey for leaking the contents of memos detailing several meetings and conversations with Trump.
“James Comey leaked information that he got in a meeting with the President of the United States. … If there were an investigation going on right now, the investigation should be James Comey,” he said.
Sekulow emphasized that Comey stored the memos on government property, leaking the information from there to a friend at Columbia University to give to a New York Times reporter.
The action was a “violation of the law, clearly,” said Sekulow.
Comey revealed how he shared his memos in a Senate hearing earlier this month.
Sekulow said the “so-called investigations” of Russian interference in the election have been going on for nearly a year, yet there continues to be “no smoking gun” when it comes to the question of collusion by the Trump campaign.
