President Donald Trump marveled at a report that said his fired FBI Director James Comey’s memos contained classified information, a revelation that could get the ex-government official in trouble.
Donald Trump blasts James Comey for leaking classified information to the media – as his eldest son comes under fire for meeting with Kremlin-linked lawyer.
“James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!’ Trump wrote Monday morning, shortly after retweeting a Fox News story that reported the allegation.

Trump then retweeted Sean Hannity and a Fox & Friends segment featuring former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, who were also commenting on the story.

The last thing James Comey wanted was the PRESIDENT of the United States to apply pressure to his legal troubles!!!
It was the Hill newspaper, on Sunday night, that first broke that most of the memos written by the former FBI chief contained classified information, a welcome distraction for the president as his son Donald Trump Jr.comes under fire for meeting with a Kremlin-associated lawyer last year.
Trump Jr. didn’t tell the New York Times, initially, that he set up the meeting to get compromising information on his father’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
If the Hill’s sources are correct, it means Comey may have violated federal protocols on the handling of classified information for the memos he wrote recounting conversations he had with President Trump.
Comey insisted in his testimony he believed his personal memos were unclassified, though he hinted one or two documents he created might have been contained classified information.
“I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with FBI senior leadership,” he testified about the one memo he later leaked about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
He added, “My view was that the content of those unclassified memorialization of those conversations was my recollection recorded.”
But when the seven memos Comey wrote regarding his nine conversations with Trump about Russia earlier this year were shown to Congress in recent days, the FBI claimed all were, in fact, deemed to be government documents.
While the Comey memos have been previously reported, this is the first time there has been a number connected to the amount of memos the ex-FBI chief wrote.”
