Months after being testifying before Congress about his firing, former FBI Director James Comey is claiming the man he leaked classified documents to is now magically his lawyer.
A friend of former FBI director James Comey who leaked sensitive FBI memos to The New York Times in the wake of Comey’s firing in 2017 now claims to be Comey’s personal attorney. Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, told The Federalist via phone on Tuesday afternoon that he was now personally representing Comey.
A review of FBI policies governing the handling of sensitive government documents suggests Comey violated FBI policy by leaking the memos, which were produced on government time, using government equipment, and directly related to his official government responsibilities, according to Comey’s own testimony before Congress.
Reached by phone on Tuesday, Richman refused to say when his legal representation of Comey began or whether he was personally representing Comey when the former FBI director testified before Congress in June 2017 about his deliberate leaking of the FBI records.
This isn’t difficult, people; Comey is claiming Richman is his attorney so he can claim attorney-client privilege, and keep himself out of prison. Huma Abedin and Anthony Wiener are doing the same; staying married so they cannot testify against each other. Comey’s ploy will likely be unsuccessful, since he never once claimed Richman was representing him during his previous testimonies.
Either way, this corrupt son of a bitch needs to be fitted for a jail cell.
