Deep State leakers have waged war on the Trump administration.

Up until now they have mostly operated in the shadows, protected by the cloak of anonymity granted to them by journalists.

But one surprising admission revealed the identity of one of these leakers, and it stunned all of Washington.

After Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI Director, word of his memos leaked to the press.

One such memo described a conversation where Trump told Comey he hoped he could find a way to let former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn go.

Its contents were read to the Times by a “Comey associate.”

But who was the “Comey associate?”

Under oath, Comey revealed that he himself engineered this leak.

Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he personally directed the leak to a reporter of a memo he kept that detailed a conversation he had with President Trump.

Comey admitted that leak after Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, asked him why he kept those memos, and then asked if he ever shared any of them outside the Department of Justice.

Comey replied by saying that after Trump hinted on Twitter that he might have tapes of discussions between the two men, he thought it made sense to release his memo, and admitted he was hoping it would create the need for special counsel.

“My judgment was, I needed to get that out into the public square, and so I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter,” Comey said. “Didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of the special counsel.”

Comey’s friend was revealed to be Columbia Law Professor Daniel Richman.

But one interesting exchange about the memo led many to question its existence.

Comey was asked by Oklahoma Senator James Lankford if this associate could hand the memo over to the Senate.

He responded, “potentially.”

This set off alarm bells that these memos may be fabricated.

But even if the memo doesn’t exist, the damage was done.

Comey’s leak fit the Deep State pattern of leaks.

He leaked juicy gossip that may or may not have been true, but certainly did not include any evidence of wrongdoing — but it was tantalizing enough that anti-Trump reporters could frame it in a negative way to damage the Trump Presidency.
