President Trump also urged Congress on Monday to get a health care bill passed through the Senate.
The feedback loop was complete shortly after 8 a.m., when Fox Newsreported that Trump had "accused former FBI Director James Comey of having illegally leaked classified material". "That is so illegal!"
Former FBI Director James Comey's "Boy Scout, choirboy defense" doesn't hold up against accusations that he broke the law by leaking a memo about one of his conversations with President Donald Trump, the president's counselor, Kellyanne Conway, said Monday.
Unfortunately for Comey, a new report at The Hill indicates that there were seven of these "personal memos". "It's against the law".
"James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media", Trump tweeted at 6:40 A.M. ET.
But while Trump's cable news obsession might make it easier to identify the source of misleading reports he shares, fact-checking will likely do nothing to stop his supporters on social media from repeating the falsehood. "They've failed to represent half of the country", Trump retweeted this tweet of Carrie Sheffield, founder of Bold. Comey responded, saying the memos were personal-not government-documents and he had every right to leak them to the press.
"No memos were given to the press, and no memos were classified at the time I received them", he said, explaining that the "substance" of one memo was given to the press but not the physical document.
However, Comey has discussed the content of his memos publicly during congressional testimony and addressed the general sensitivity with which he treated their contents.
On the basis of what we now know, it does not appear that Comey committed a crime.
"So you didn't consider your memo or your sense of that conversation to be a government document".
First, as I explained in the column, the prosecution of former Central Intelligence Agency director Petraeus - who pled guilty to misdemeanor mishandling of classified information - demonstrates that "the government regards many communications between national-security officials and the president as classified".
Trump last month had said that he did not have recordings of his meetings with Comey, after weeks of speculation that the Republican billionaire leader himself fueled.
But since the memos were, ostensibly, made in his capacity as an Federal Bureau of Investigation official, they could be considered government documents - in which case, he would have lacked authority to share them with the media, as he admitted to doing during his Senate testimony.
