On Sunday The Hill broke major news that some of those mythical James Comey memos which he leaked to the media contained classified information.
That’s a big deal because, as Mediaite previously reported, “the FBI has a strict policy that forbids agents from releasing classified information or information about ongoing investigations without authorized permission.”
While it’s unclear if any of the classified elements of the memos were part of Comey’s deliberate leaks to the media, it didn’t stop Pro-Trump Twitter from making hay of it — With the President of the United States himself leading the way.
James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!

It went from there.
Comey is in hot water. 😁https://t.co/BoNb1Gr6ju

Most of Comey’s memos contained classified info. Did he break the same security rules he stated Hillary disregarded? https://t.co/HOVCSbGqtQ

The media is more outraged Don Jr had a 20 min meeting than Comey himself leaking classified intel just to smear his political opponents
