Former FBI Director James Comey refused to deny leaking classified information in his memos when a reporter confronted him on Monday after he testified in front of Congress.

“My understanding is that when you shared your memos with your legal team that there was a follow up for a classified containment operation by the Bureau,” the reporter said. “Was there a spill of classified information when you shared those memos?”

“Yeah, I’m not going to talk about something like that,” Comey snarked back.

“Well that’s important to talk about whether classified information was mishandled,” the reporter fired back.

“Whether you think it is or not, I’m not going to talk about it one way or another,” Comey said, appearing to grow annoyed.

Though Comey tried to argue that the memos were his private property and thus legal for him to distribute, the FBI made clear they were in fact government property and contained classified information.

President Donald Trump has called out Comey for leaking classified information in his memos.

    My guess is he’s going for a diminishing capacity defense now. Not diminished but he’s gradually losing his mind on a daily basis and slipping into an alternate form of reality somewhere out in his delusional imagination where he and Obama created an empire and he’s the high sheriff of Nottingham. You go for it James, the high sheriff lost his cookies in the end too.
