President Donald Trump’s lawyer will file a complaint after former FBI Director James Comey admitted in his testimony before the Senate panel on Thursday that he leaked memos about his private conversations with the president to the media, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Trump’s outside lawyer Marc Kasowitz will file the complaint with the Justice Department’s Inspector General and the Senate Judiciary Committee as early as next week, according to CNN.
Kasowitz’s potential complaint could zero in on Comey’s admission before the Senate intelligence committee that he asked his friend, Columbia law school Professor Daniel Richman, to leak the detailed memos about his talks with Trump.
Richman has confirmed he leaked one of the memos to The New York Times.
Comey said he hoped this would prompt the appointment of a special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian interference in last year’s election.
“My judgment was I needed to get that out into the public square. So I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter,” Comey said during the hearing.
