Trump: Comey ‘Illegally Leaked’ Memos That Led to Special Counsel, ‘Does Everybody Know What That Means?’

President Trump sent a tweet Friday night that may cause some people to panic.

Late Thursday, the memos of former FBI Director James Comey were released. However, reports are suggesting that at least two out of the seven memos contained classified information, something DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is now investigating.

And since Comey has openly admitted that he hoped that releasing the memos would lead to the appointment of a special counsel, the president drew quite a conclusion.

“James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council [sic]?” Trump began the tweet. “Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act? Really, does everybody know what that means?”

Uh oh….
