Former FBI Director James Comey trapped himself by telling one big lie.
Now it could come back to haunt him.
The former FBI director could be headed to jail after Trey Gowdy stood in front of a camera and used one word to describe Comey’s behavior.
The most puzzling part of James Comey’s media tour was when he claimed never to have leaked his conversations with President Trump to a friend.
During his Congressional testimony, Comey stated he passed along the memos of their conversations to a friend in order to force the appointment of a special counsel.
Then, when pressed during interviews, Comey outrageously claimed he never leaked his memos.
Comey tried to peddle the nonsense that he only told his friend, a Columbia University Law professor, about the substance of conversations.
This baffled observers.
And that included Trey Gowdy.
Gowdy appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show and declared that Comey’s new definition of a leak is still called a felony.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The South Carolina congressman told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Thursday night that Comey was twisting the facts in an interview with Fox’s Bret Baier earlier that evening.
Comey was trying to convince Baier that he had not really “leaked” his memos of meetings with President Donald Trump to the media but had simply shared personal correspondence that could be seen as no different than a private “diary.”
That didn’t wash with Gowdy, who told Carlson that Comey “has a definition of the word leak that no one else has.”
“What he says is a leak is what the rest of us call a felony,” Gowdy insisted. “Leaking is disclosing a confidential conversation, which is exactly what he did.”
